Notes: Perry returned to Nashville in January, 1975, for recording sessions which resulted
in his final album produced by Chet Atkins and marking the tenth anniversary of his
first recordings there. As with his sessions two years earlier, it appears that both
Atkins and Perry toyed with a number of directions the result of which may have
turned out to be very different than originally planned. Perry experimented with a
number of recordings and more than a few were left unreleased. He recorded at
least 19 tracks in Nashville of which 10 were released in the final album and two
additional as singles only. The original title track for the album was intended to
be "World of Dreams" composed by British crooner Des O'Connor.
