This Gold Standard Series 45 RPM Extended Play compilation features four of Perry's
popular standards previously featured within his long play albums and released within
this compilation in 1960. During the middle 1950s it was common to find songs released
within various formats as gradually the 12" long play record became the album standard.
Perry's first full stereophonic albums were recorded in early 1958 but there remained a
large market for his monaural recordings within other popular formats.
All tracks in this compilation were monaural.

t~ from the 1948 M-G-M film "Words and Music"this selection was produced by Charles Grean and J. Burgess with Chorus
and Orchestra directed by Henri René. The song was featured within
Perry's last motion picture "Words and Music" in 1948.
