Yes Sir, I collected Pat Boone record’s too. I was an early fan then I changed when was able to find the Original’s. He was absolutely huge. Billboard said he was #2 in the Fifties behind Elvis and ahead of Ricky. I’m not sure I buy that, but he did sell 45 Million albums and in those days that was huge. I had Tutti Frutti on 78 by Pat, but also Richard’s when it was available. But by 57 he had found his market, because Love Letters in the Sand, April Love and so on where all his and that was his market. He got too religious for me, when he refused to kiss a girl on screen for a movie, I think “April Love”.
