Perry Como - Wanted (1953) + Give Me Your Hand (1949) HMV UK B.10691 78rpm (1954)
Another gem from the 78 era, this time it's Perry Como with the Hugo Winterhalter Orchestra and Chorus on their December 29, 1953 recording of Wanted that made it to #1 of billboard Magazine's Singles Charts of 1954. Side B for this UK release is Dorothy Stewart's Give Me Your Hand recorded on May 3, 1949. Once one gets used to the sound of these, he realizes how much more natural they sound compared to CD remasterings that sound artificial. I even included the original raw file for the brave to experiment, enjoy.
The attitude of the gallant Six Hundred which so aroused Lord Tennyson's admiration arose from the fact that the least disposition to ask the reason why was discouraged by tricing the would-be inquirer to the triangle and flogging him into insensibility.

Music posted here is for information purposes only. I don't subscribe to the notion that record companies are ripped off by the proliferation of blogs like this one. It is my firm belief that quite the contrary happens i.e. by bringing awareness to hitherto virtually unknown artists to the general public the music benefits greatly and a new level of interest is created.
Listeners are therefore kindly requested to buy the original music and support artists if they fancy what they hear - remember: if you like it, buy it!
