Notes: ~ This well-known compilation of hit singles first appeared ( as yet unconfirmed ) in 1948
as a 3-disc box-set of RCA's 78RPM format recordings and released a year later on their
new format 7" 45RPM records.  The six-song collection was expanded in 1952 within the
label's reluctant adoption of the Columbia 10" LP format  and then again in 1956 within
a twelve-song compilation titled "Relaxing With Perry Como". Both albums were also
released within RCA Victor's own 45RPM Extended Play format albums which were
intended to compete with the long-play album format without success. By the end of
the 1950s, the LP became the industry format of choice for albums whilst the 45 became
the industry format of choice for commercial singles. 
 
All tracks in this compilation were monaural.
