Who was blind at birth and only a tweeny 12-year-old when he scored his first #1 hit? You guessed it, LITTLE STEVIE WONDER, and the song was Fingertips. One of the very first (live) singles to hit #1 on the Hot 100.
GREATEST HITS ALBUMS are now as common as fleas on a stray. But who had the first? Johnny Mathis in 1958. That album spent over 9-years on the billboard charts. Why? Here’s Johnny’s explanation. “Other media can’t be controlled to give a continuous flow of relaxing songs when people choose to cuddle on sofas and bearskin rugs. Phonograph records become a catalyst to generate sensuous vibrations that induce the closest form of lovemaking.” Why didn’t he just say it was the world’s greatest make-out album.
