Despite the different arrangers and producers, I Believe sounds cohesive since all of them are coming from the same place -- they all construct lush backgrounds for Perry, and he sings in his trademark smooth-as-honey voice. It's not exceptional Como, but it's not bad, either, and it's ...

    Eli Eli although, of a differant culture,has to me a certain unforgettable melodic chant.dic

    In my collection,my copy of 'I Believe'' jumps the tracks on the song 'Eli Eli'',and e my old record player did not cause the 'Scratched Groove',the newer record players may not be compatible with older 'Rubber' records,hence my purchase of your CD,that I can play on my HP 8000 Series RW disk drive. I tried to get a casset tape from you but there was no indication of ''Eli Eli'' on,or that there was a second side. I will research your library for more 'Como' records of his 'Fiddler on the Roof', and a different version of his ___Maria. Perry could sing ''The Telephone Book'' as could Frank Sinatra,Peggy Lee, Karen Carpenter,and Nat King Cole. Perry has developed a perfect adult version of a'Boys Chior'tone quality,and a perfect feeling for words and music,his voice has the 'Echo Chamber' quality. While Gordan McCrea speaking voice has operatic overtones and has been overlooked and underestimated and under appreciated. I underappreciated Nelson Eddy and ____________with the great music of Rudolph Frimal. The younger generation dosn't know what Classic's there missing. While 'Donney and Marie' may not be a venue of choice,there is someone who could(On TV not Radio)could expose musical Classic's(Popular)to the previous generations,at least more than the written 'Classics' they received from grade school through ''Life. My rating of a 10 is much to low.
