Seattle ~ 1969

Notes: ~ This perky tune was the theme song for an American TV series called 'Here Come the Brides' but it has survived longer than the programme it introduced. The song was written by Ernie Sheldon, Jack Keller, and Hugo Montenegro. Sheldon is an old movie-title songwriter, with such credits as 'The Sons of Katie Elder' and 'Lord Love a Duck', and Montenegro became popular with his themes for such films as 'Lady in Cement', 'Hurry Sundown', and 'The Wrecking Crew'. Perry had a sizeable hit with this recording and, from the sound of it, he had a lot of fun, too.
