    Actually Clint had the flipside of a record that went to #1 in Great Britain. The A-side “Wanderin’ Star” went to #1 for Lee Marvin, with Clint Eastwood singing the B-side “I Talk To The Trees” which got some airplay oon the BBC. Needless to say, Clint did well in deciding to focus on acting and directing, instead of singing.
