Pat Boone - Pat (1956)

Okay, I'm guilty. I love Pat Boone records. I love his smooth voice - and his white shoes! I think I first heard of Pat Boone when I was a little girl and he and his family did a TV commercial for juice or milk or something (I don't remember what exactly - I didn't really pay attention). But when I first really saw and heard Pat Boone, it was on a late night movie called "Bernadine" (even as a kid, I was hooked on "old" movies). I immediately liked him - his clean-cut looks and his singing (this was way before I became a punk rocker). Of course, Pat Boone was the last thing on my mind as I entered my teenage years, and I definitely thought he was a major "square". But then as a young adult when I bought my first Sony Walkman, I got a free cassette (courtesy of Reader's Digest) that had various artists on it. One of those artists was Pat Boone and the song was "Friendly Persuasion". I liked Pat again. And as time has gone by, I've liked his records more and more. And I really like this record - it's pretty rockin'!

Just to show how MOR my tastes were when I was a kid, I watched Lawrence Welk with my Mother on Saturday nights for years. At age 13, I went to a Pat Boone concert with my mother. Peaches and Herb opened for Pat. I knew who they were!

Pat is no Louis Prima, but this album BOPS!!!
I'm serious. This is a great 50's bebop album.

I love "Ain't nobody here but us chickens." !!
Also has "Flip, Flop & Fly" which Louis does.

This is a GREAT 50's bebop album!!
