(I wonder how many guitar players looking for tabs will find their way here.)

Tab Hunter was already a movie star (he had just starred with Natalie Wood in two films in 1956) when he decided to try music business as well. I’m not going to say this or that about his singing, but he did have a huge international hit with this one and he also had two other singles in US Top 40.

List price:  Very Good + is $12.50, Near Mint $25
