Mr. Blue/Your Nose Is Gonna Grow 45 by Johnny Crawford

Johnny Crawford’s major claim to fame will always be his time of the televison series, THE RIFLEMAN, when he played Chuck Connors son, Mark McCain during the shows run, 1958-1963.

Like many young televison stars of the time, he began recording music. He had eight singles reach the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Hot 100, 1961-1964, with three making the top 20.

“Your Nose Is Gonna Grow/Mr. Blue” was issued during the summer of 1962 and finlly peaked at number 14. I have always favored Mr. Blue. which was the B side of the single. It was light weight, pre-Beatles pop that may not have had a lasting impact upon American music but was a pleasant listen at the time.

As with many televion stars, when the series ended, so did his commercial success in the music industry.
