Louis Armstrong: Mame (1964-6)
In 1964, Louis Armstrong scored an incredible hit with his recording of Hello Dolly, written by Jerry Herman for the Broadway show. Pop's last big record was Mack the Knife in 1955, although he had many albums that sold well. The success of Dolly gave Pops almost a second career as his already busy schedule was filled with demands for personal appearances and numerous TV variety shows. The recording knocked the chart-topping Beatles off the Top 10 for a few weeks and made Louis the oldest performer to score such a hit. Recording companies kept looking for similar show tunes for Louis to record in hopes of a sequel.
