Perry Como Just Out Of CD
Perry Como: Just Out of Reach--Rarities from Nashville Produced by Chet Atkins. CD Perry Como was hardly the first pop vocalist to add country to his sound, but he might have been the most accomplished recorded with Nashville producer-picker Chet Atkins, his 1975 album Just Out of Reach capped a three decade run of charting albums for the crooner, peaking at #142 in December of that year. But the ten tracks from that album which has never appeared on CD anywhere in the world are only the beginning of a 23-track treasure trove of sides that Como recorded with Atkins in Nashville during the '70s. Also included are six unreleased outtakes from the album sessions for Just Out of Reach and Como's 1973 album And I Love You So, five non-LP singles new to CD, and Spanish language versions of Perry's hit recordings of "And I Love You So" and "I Want To Give. Como connoisseur Jim Ritz adds notes along with photos.
