Eddie Fisher - Dungaree Doll

On this day November 3, 1955 in New York, Eddie Fisher recorded "Dungaree Doll."



Edwin John "Eddie" Fisher (August 10, 1928 – September 22, 2010) was an American entertainer. He was the most successful pop singles artist of the first half of the 1950s, selling millions of records and hosting his own TV show.

Fisher left his first wife, actress Debbie Reynolds, to marry Reynolds's best friend, actress Elizabeth Taylor, when Taylor's husband film producer Mike Todd died. This event garnered scandalous and unwelcome publicity for Fisher. He later married Connie Stevens. Fisher is the father of actresses Carrie Fisher (with Reynolds), Joely Fisher (with Stevens), and Tricia Leigh Fisher (with Stevens).
Dungaree doll reached #7 on the Top 40 American charts and would finish at #56 for the year, 1956. It was issued in the UK on HMV but never charted! I can't find much info regarding this record except that some Fisher fans rate this as one of his worst records yet other's deem this a great stab at rock 'n' roll.
