Four Aces – Stranger In Paradise.

This ballad from the musical ‘Kismet’ was covered by many top artistes of the 1950s, and in the UK no less than 6 versions were placed in the Top Twenty best sellers, including Bing Crosby, Eddie Calvert, Don Cornell, Tony Martin, Tony Bennett and the only vocal group to chart – The Four Aces. Tony Bennett’s version was the highest placed, but this group – led by Al Alberts – were also high in the UK’s Top Ten (1955), as they had already been in the USA (1953). This rare TV performance must at the time have greatly contributed to the success of their version.
