    I liked Johnny Duncan a lot (actually I liked both singers named Johnny Duncan – the other guy was a bluegrass/skiffle star whose popularity was greater in England and Europe than in the USA).

    I don’t his biggest hits were necessarily his best recordings. This was Johnny’s first of three Billboard #1s (Cashbox had the prior single “Stranger” reach #1 also). Although not billed on the 45 release, Janie Fricke was prominently featured on “Stranger”, this song, and Johnny’s next #1. The songs were essentially duets. Johnny has an interesting backstory that is worth checking out
