Notes: ~ In 1943, one-time barber Perry Como launched his solo singing career, and the one-time crooner
and trombonist Jack Fulton started writing songs. Their paths crossed some years later when
"Wanted", a Fulton song that Perry recorded and made one of the big hits of 1954. An intriguing
feature of this pretty performance by Perry is the way his voice seems to float over the
gentle shuffle rhythm in the background.
