"Bobby Vinton, Greatest Hits 0 Out of Print - Last Copy"

In 1964 the Beatles started a remarkable run at the top of the Billboard pop charts. On February 1, 1964 "I Want to Hold Your Hand" became the #1 song in the U.S. and stayed there for seven weeks, at which point it was replaced by "She Loves You" for two weeks, and then "Can't Buy Me Love" for five weeks. I bring this all up because before that epic 14 week run, the artist who had been at the top of the charts for the entire month of January 1964 was Bobby Vinton, with his third #1 hit, "There! I've Send It Again!" The previous year Vinton had spent four weeks on top with "Roses Are Red (My Love" and another three with "Blue Velvet." Vinton had his last #1 near the end of 1963 with "Mr. Lonely," but by then the face of popular music had changed. Going into 1963 Vinton was well on his way to being the crooner for the Sixties, but then came the Beatles and the British Invasion. Despite suddenly being out of vogue, Vinton had a pretty good career throughout the decade. You might be surprised to find out that in the first decade of his career Vinton had 28 songs make it to the Billboard Top 40. Tracks Include: "Blue Velvet" "Roses Are Red" "Blue On Blue" "Mr. Lonely" "Let's Kiss And Make Up" "My Heart Belongs To You" "There! I've Said It Again" "Rain Rain Go Away" "I Love You The Way You Are" "Over The Mountain" "Trouble Is My Middle Name" "Tell Me Why"
