Along with millions of people all over the world, were Perry Como fans. Weve always enjoyed what has been described as his "easy-going" style. Working on this album, our first with Mr. C., we found out a lot more about his style. A better word to describe his approach to a song is "natural" . . . for Comos handling of a piece of material is just that.
In this album, For the Young at Heart, weve chose twelve "young" titles. It is interesting the various ways composer and lyricists have taken the "youth" theme and have come up with so many variations. From the oldie, When You and I Were Young, Maggie, to the recent Like Young, each has something to say. And Mr. C. is just the person to make these songs live.
The whole package is tied together with a beat . . . which means a little dancin . . . a little swingin. When Perry Como swings, he does it from way down inside, then when it hits the microphone, its mellowed and restrained. Funny thing . . . you dont realize hes swinging until you start swinging. By then you know its the real thing.
This album is for the young in heart, so enjoy it.
