Description

Sherman was born in Santa Monica, California as Robert Cabot Sherman, Jr. He graduated in 1961 from Birmingham High School in Van Nuys in the San Fernando Valley and received his vocal training from Georgia Massey's School of Song and Dance, also located in the San Fernando Valley. Sherman first became famous as a house singer on the ABC television series Shindig! from 1964 to 1966. For several years, he tried to record singles and break out into the music industry, but he did not have much luck until he earned a role as a bashful, stammering logger on the television series Here Come the Brides, also on ABC, with Bridget Hanley as his romantic interest, Candy Pruitt. The cast included Robert Brown, David Soul, and Joan Blondell. He also appeared on an episode of The Monkees entitled "Monkees at the Movies," playing a pompous surfer named Frankie Catalina, performing the song "New Girl in School" (which was co-written by The Beach Boys' Brian Wilson, Jan Berry of Jan and Dean, songwriter Roger Christian and Bob Norberg, a roommate of Wilson's at the time). In 1969, his first gold single, "Little Woman", became popular, peaking at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (#2 in Canada) and spending nine weeks in the Top 20. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc by the R.I.A.A. in October 1969. His other hits were "Julie (Do Ya Love Me)" (US #5) (Canada #3) (Australia #3) (written by Tom Bahler), "Easy Come, Easy Go" (US #9) (Canada #6), "Jennifer" (US #60) (Canada #32), "La, La, La" (US #9) (Canada #7), and "The Drum" (US #29) (Canada #7) (written by Alan O'Day). Some of these songs were produced by Jackie Mills, a Hollywood record producer, who also produced the Brady Bunch Kids. In Canada "Hey Mister Sun" reached #19, "Cried Like A Baby" reached #10, and "Waiting At The Bus Stop" reached #31. "La, La, La," "Easy Come, Easy Go," and "Julie Do Ya Love Me" all sold in excess of a million copies and garnered further gold discs for Sherman. In 1971, after an appearance on The Partridge Family, Sherman was given his own show on ABC, Getting Together. The show competed with CBS's All in the Family on Saturday nights and was canceled after just thirteen episodes. However, both the television series and the hit theme song of the same name landed a number of cover stories on such teenage magazines as Tiger Beat. ~SOURCE: Wikipedia PLEASE NOTE: I divided my uploads among multiple channels, Bookmark this link in your browser for instant access to an index with links to all of John1948's oldies classics.
