Song: Red Sails In The Sunset
Eight separate recordings of RED SAILS IN THE SUNSET have been Top 40 hits in the U.S.A. since this British song was introduced in the U.S. by Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians in 1935. Lombardo`s version stayed at No.1 for four weeks; Bing Crosby`s also went to No. 1 that December. Other hit versions have been recorded by Louis Armstrong (1936), Nat "King" Cole (1951), The Platters (1960) and Fats Domino (1963). The Beatles were performing this song on stage in 1962 at the Star Club in Hamburg, Germany, before they exploded to world prominence.
