Perry Como rocks! Perry Como would have been aghast at the notion, but in the mid-to-late 1950s (when his TV show was the highest-rated show in the USA) he recorded a slew of singles that weren't really rock 'n' roll, but definitely rocked. These immaculately written, produced, and sung records are now heralded as the era's classics, and they include Kewpie Doll, Round And Round, Ko Ko Mo, Tina Marie,
Hot Diggity, Catch A Falling Star, Magic Moments, Juke Box Baby, Glendora, Dancin', and Just Born To Be Your Baby.
Those songs featured the era's top songwriters like Burt Bacharach
, and Luther Dixon
, and accounted for millions of records. Now they're joined by a selection of Perry Como's other uptempo songs from 1945's Hubba Hubba
(Dig You Later
) to early '60s hits like Delaware and Caterina. In between, we've sandwiched even more classics like Don't Let The Stars Get In Your Eyes
(the biggest-selling record of 1953!). So perhaps Perry Como isn't a rock 'n' roller, but he can turn on the magic when it comes to uptempo songs, and all of those recordings are together now in one place for the first time!
