"SO SMOOTH" was Perry Como''s first RCA Victor 12" long-play album, recorded and originally released in 1955. This was also Perry''s first album recorded at Webster Hall, New York City, and his first album with the Ray Charles Singers who would support him generally throughout the remainder of his recording career. The companion album is Perry''s 1957 "We Get Letters" which featured a small section of Mitchell Ayres'' Orchestra fondly referred to as "Como''s Little Combo" backing Perry in a relaxed atmosphere of jazz-like arrangements. The album "SO SMOOTH" was released in England as "We Get Letters Volume 2" as Perry''s popularity gained international appeal during the late 1950s. These were Perry''s first two full-featured original 12" albums.
