AllMusic Review by

"20 Outstanding Classics," reads the copy on the front of this U.K. import; on the back, in much smaller print, are the words, "Recordings transcribed from radio broadcasts." Specifically, these 20 tracks with a running time of nearly 57 minutes, seem to have been drawn from Perry Como's Supper Club radio series of the 1940s. Among the songs are several of Como's big hits from 1943-46, including the chart-toppers "Till the End of Time" and "Prisoner of Love." Sound quality is fair, if variable, and the airchecks probably will be of interest to Como fans. But the release is docked half a diamond for the marginally deceptive packaging.
