Easy, likable Guy Mitchell sings songs and brings trinkets to his ‘Truly Fair’ in this million-selling, quintessential fifties hit with a mariner spirit, a contagious melody, a buoyant, cheerful Mitch Miller arrangement, and an infectious upbeat chorus. Guy Mitchell exemplifies the popular male baritones including Frankie Laine, Don Cherry, Steve Lawrence, and Don Cornell.
Quintessential Fifties lyric:
"There are songs to sing her, trinkets to bring her, flowers for her golden hair"
