Comes A-Long A-Love

The fantastic Kay Starr is possibly best known for “Wheel Of Fortune“. However one of my favourites is “Comes A-Long A-Love”; a song notable for being the UK’s third ever number one single in January 1953.

The song was written by Al Sherman; and turned out to be his last hit, although rumour has it his sons continued his trade and also did quite well. Another goldmine of a back story that we can dig into later.
