The Lettermen's first break came when they were spotted by comedian George Burns who took them on tour with him. Jack Benny then "stole" them for his tour. Then their first single, The Way You Look Tonight, took off and sold more than a million copies.
Their debut album, A Song For Young Love, was a #1 best-seller and remained at the top of the US charts for 58 weeks.
Other hits included When I Fall In Love, Theme From A Summer Place, Put Your Head On My Shoulder, Going Out Of My Head and Can't Take My Eyes Off You.
