The private Como was exactly as he appeared to the public: a quiet, self-effacing man who considered his performing activities as strictly tertiary to his family and his faith. While he had numerous million-selling singles and albums, he refused to have most of them certified gold (later platinum) out of modesty. A notable exception was when his album "Como's Gold Records" (RCA Victor: 1958) was released. One of the first compilation albums to become a best-seller, with liner notes by Irving Berlin, it became a million-seller in and of itself, and remained on the Billboard charts for more than a decade after its release.

 

Had the longest stay of any popular artist with RCA Victor records, 1943-88.

The audience knows I`m not going to do anything after all these years to upset them.

 

Perry Como said of his career: "For the amount of talent I had (and I couldn`t dance, act, or tell a joke) I enjoyed a tremendous career."
