AllMusic Review by

A barely competent hodgepodge of Perry Como recordings from the '40s and '50s, The Essential is anything but what the title promises. Hits like "Till the End of Time" are presented in odd versions with murky sound, while all sorts of ephemera like "You Can't Pull the Wool Over My Eyes" make appearances right next to popular performances. The only thing to recommend about this collection is the length, 18 tracks.
