One Hit Wonder – Mammy Blue


There were many versions of this tune, internationally and here in the USA. Pop Tops was the sole version to reach the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #57, while the Easy Listening chart in Billboard afforded the Pop-Tops’ “Mammy Blue” a #28 peak. However the James Darren cover of “Mammy Blue” – which “bubbled under the Hot 100” in Billboard with a #107 peak – charted on the singles charts in both Record World and Cashbox with respective peaks of #66 and #77. Also Record World afforded the Pop Tops’ “Mammy Blue” a higher ranking than that of the Billboard Hot 100, the single’s Record World peak being #44, although its Cashbox chart peak was only #68. Record World also featured a cover by the Bob Crewe Generation, which peaked there at #109.

    I’ve never heard of this group. I have heard this song at some point many decades ago but can’t remember who by. This song passed right by me. Good choice for an obscurity! I listened to both & don’t like the James Darren version at all. The Pop Tops’ take is pretty sweet.
