AllMusic Review by

Big-band pop crooner Perry Como was one of the first singers to take full advantage of the television medium when it charged across America in the late '40s, and as a result, he was RCA Victor's sugar daddy cash cow through the mid-'50s, selling millions of records. This set covers what are arguably his most successful years as a recording artist, spanning 1948 to 1950, and features the Fontane Sisters and the Satisfiers on some of the backing tracks, a duet with Betty Hutton, and sides with the Russ Case, Mitchell Ayres, and Henri René orchestras.
