#1 R&B, #2 Pop
Did you know that “Blueberry Hill” was #1 on the R&B charts for 11 weeks?!
Did you know that “Blueberry Hill” sold more than 5 million copies worldwide in 1956–57?!
“Blueberry Hill”, written by Al Lewis and Larry Stock, was recorded by many artists in the Forties when it was written — but the definitive and best known worldwide version was recorded by the “Fat Man” — Mr. Fats Domino!
This is another of those 78rpm discs of my Mother’s that I played endlessly! Like I said earlier, Fats was one of Mom’s faves and became one of my too!
Is he one of yours now?
