AllMusic Review by

Perry Como's rich baritone voice and silky-smooth phrasing helped make him one of the most popular American vocalists of the '40s and '50s, enjoying a string of hits that encompassed ballads, love songs, and novelty numbers. While Como scored dozens of hit singles during a recording career that lasted into the '90s, not every memorable song he recorded hit the charts. That's Where I Came In is a collection that brings together lesser-known single sides and rare B-sides from the '40s and '50s, including a number of classic standards that form a lost chapter to the legacy of a classic artist in American pop music. Selections include "More Than You Know," "My Blue Heaven," "Body and Soul," "What'll I Do?," "Missouri Waltz," "Kol Nidrei," and 46 others.
