A magnificent 53-track tribute celebrating the centenary of one of the greatest popular entertainers of them all, the late, great Perry Como, covering his 53 finest “magic moments” from 1939 to 1959.

Pierino Como (1912-2001) was the laid-back crooner whose phenomenal career was rivalled only by Sinatra and Crosby (who dubbed him “the man who invented casual”). Starting out with a style closely modelled on Crosby, he began making hits with the Ted Weems Orchestra in 1939. His own inimitable style soon emerged and he went on to score some 125 chart successes up to 1959, and was still enjoying hits well into the 70s . . . with an estimated 60 million record sales to his credit.

“Magic Moments” is Retrospective’s centenary tribute to one of the best-loved popular entertainers of all time. No fewer than 53 of his biggest successes have been collected together onto two generously filled albums, including 48 chart hits and 14 million-sellers.

Perry also had enormous success with novelty numbers, sometimes joined by other artists (“A”, You’re Adorable and Hoop-Dee-Doo – No.1s with The Fontane Sisters; A Bushel And A Peck – No.3 with Betty Hutton). But the range also includes a number of Perry’s beautiful interpretations of great standards that, for some inexplicable reason, did not make the charts – Body And Soul, What’ll I Do?, Blue Skies and so on. Whichever way he fulfils the regularly-made request, “Sing to me, Mister C”, each moment of Perry’s singing is indeed magic.

"...2012 marks the centenary of Perry Como’s birth, and this selection charts a two decade trajectory of his warm, mellifluously voiced and highly successful career. It starts invariably with the disc’s title track, and nor should one want it any other way. It sets something of a template. The ease of delivery, the untroubled, generally unhurried confidence of his delivery was matched by songs derived from the more easy going wing of the Great American Songbook... Nice transfers, decent notes and a fair selection of 53 songs."
