AllMusic Review by

You have to buy this budget-priced Perry Como album from the British reissue label Prism Leisure and read Tony Watts' typically brief liner notes to come upon the admission "Many of the recordings included on this album are transcriptions from Perry's radio and television appearances in the Fifties." If you can get over the disappointment of discovering that you have not purchased original studio recordings, the performances, in only okay fidelity, are on a par with Como's records, and the addition of duet partners Dinah Shore and Brenda Lee adds to the enjoyment. But this is still a random collection of unidentified radio air checks and TV soundtracks, not a thorough compilation of Como's work.
