Sing to Me Mr. C was Perry Como's Eighth RCA Victor 12" long-play album and the sixth recorded in full "living" stereophonic sound.[2][3]

Sing To Me Mr. C was recorded in the same manner as the medley segments on Perry Como's popular TV show, complete with performances of his opening and closing themes, plus six medleys of three full songs each. The total time of the album was nearly 43-minute running time, which was unusually long for a pop album of the era. Most Hugo & Luigi albums are known for being cohesive and well constructed and most critics agreed that the material was terrific, with the album featuring many popular standards.
