Bobby Vinton - 1969 - Vinton

Vinton is the only child of a locally popular bandleader, Stan Vinton. At 16, Vinton formed his first band, which played clubs around the Pittsburgh area. With the money he earned, he helped finance his college education at Duquesne University, where he studied music and graduated with a degree in musical composition. While at Duquesne, he became proficient on all of the instruments in the band: piano, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, drums and oboe. Vinton's birthplace of Canonsburg, Pennsylvania is also the birthplace of Perry Como. His hometown named two streets, Bobby Vinton Boulevard and the shorter adjoining Bobby Vinton Drive, in his honor. Canonsburg town fathers had plans to erect a statue in his honor, but Vinton vetoed the idea noting that the $100,000 planned cost could go to far more important town needs. Vinton was Bobby Vinton's nineteenth studio album, released in 1969. Three singles came from the album: "To Know You Is to Love You", "The Days of Sand and Shovels" and "No Arms Can Ever Hold You". Cover versions include Herb Alpert's hit "This Guy's in Love with You", "When I Fall in Love", Tammy Wynette's hit "Stand by Your Man", "It's a Sin to Tell a Lie", "Try a Little Tenderness" and the McGuire Sisters' hit "May You Always".
