While artists joining forces to record a song was hardly new in 1952, the usual routine seemed to be either for a male soloist and female soloist to join for a duet, or a solo vocalist of either gender to team with a group. This is one of the very few I've ever encountered where two male solo vocalists to join forces.
Some may assert numerous Bob Hope/Bing Crosby cooperative ventures as proof to the contrary, but Hope was clearly better known as an actor/comedian than as a singer, while Como and Fisher were both known principally, if not exclusively, as solo vocalists.
