Seattle/The Songs I Love Review

by Al Campbell

This two-fer CD combines Perry Como's 1963 album The Songs I Love with Seattle, released six years later. While Como's voice was always in excellent shape, the arrangements for these sessions are too diverse to provide a cohesive listening experience. Songs I Love features pleasant standards such as "Days of Wine and Roses," "Fly Me to the Moon (In Other Words)" and "I Left My Heart in San Francisco." Seattle, on the other hand, is an attempt to make Como's sound a bit hipper in a 1969 sort of way. The title track is the same tune made popular at the time by teen idol Bobby Sherman and was used as the theme song to the TV show Here Come the Brides in which Sherman starred. Unless you're a die-hard collector, best to skip this two-fer.
