Jim Pike, Tony Butala, and Bob Engemann formed The Lettermen in 1958 and during the 1960s they became one of the kings of harmonic pop. They placed 21 singles on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart, 1961-1971. More amazing was their album sales as they had 32 consecutive album releases reach the BILLBOARD Pop Album Chart.
“When I Fall In Love” was a top 20 hit for Doris day back in 1952. They remained true to her version but added their tight harmonies to the mix. Released as a single, it reached number seven on the BILLBOARD Singles Chart. It also reached number one on the Adult Contemporary Chart.
Tony Butala now owns The Lettermen name and they are still out on the road.
