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.
