A classic Como album from the mid-1960's
Vincent T. Lynch | Colorado Springs, Colorado | 08/22/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album, good as it is, pales beside Perry's other album from the same time period -- "Lightly Latin". Yet, there are some wonderful gems in this collection. "Sovenir d'Italie", "Traveling Down A Lonely Road", "Forget Domani" (far truer to the nature of the song than Sinatra's version), "One Day Is Like Another", and "Dreams & Memories" are all truly done beautifully with a Como voice that was in relatively fine range with understated arrangements. And, I cannot imagine a rendition of "Santa Lucia" more perfect than this. The sound quality is really quite good. Good enough, in fact, to hear extraneous noise from the recording session...so that is good (ironically). The strings are just a tad harsh and lack perfect clarity if you listen with headphones, but I always found that true with Victor's Dynagroove-era recordings. The hiss from the tape masters of that era is noticeable, but you soon forget about it when you are seduced by the beauty of Perry's voice and the pleasant arrangements. The price is steep, but fair for this Japanese group that released this. I didn't mind a bit. Please...more...and I understand the "Lightly Latin" album is soon to come. And yes, this really was recorded in Italy. The Italian sung by the chorus is authentic...and Perry didn't do too badly, either. Thanks for the release!"
