an American country music singer and songwriter. He is one of the best-selling and most influential artists in country music history and yet is one of the most unrecognized by the American public.
His 1955 hit single "Rose Marie" held the record for the longest time at number 1 on the UK charts until Bryan Adams broke the record in 1992 after 37 years. In the U.S., his "Indian Love Call" (1952), and "Secret Love" (1953) reached number 2 on the Billboard country chart. Whitman had a string of minor hits from the mid 1960s into the 1970s, and became known to a new generation of fans through TV marketing in the 1980s.
Because this tape is sealed new and we cannot inspect for play-ability, we offer no warranty or guarantees on how well this tape will perform once it is opened and removed from the cellophane package.
