Editorial Reviews
Bob Merrill was one of popular music’s most prolific and popular songwriters who despite being unable to read music, wrote more pop hits in the 1950s than anyone else. This 2CD set has a whopping 61 tracks featuring a multitude of big name artists such as Tony Martin, Guy Mitchell, Burl Ives, Patti Page, Doris Day and many more! Includes his first big hit and in fact million seller “(If I Knew You Were Coming) I’d’ve Baked A Cake” with Eileen Barton and the popular novelty smash “(How Much Is) That Doggie In The Window” which was No. 1 in America for eight weeks. Bob Merrill also wrote some successful Broadway shows and went on to write lyrics for more modern day artists such as Barbra Streisand.
