The Lettermen

The Lettermen's close-harmony pop songs with light and easy arrangements made them quite a successful group with adult audiences during the 1960s, when changing styles and tastes made many older listeners feel just a bit left behind in the music world. Formed in 1960 by singer Tony Butala, along with two students from Brigham Young University, Jim Pike and Bob Engemann, the Lettermen recorded without success for about a year until they signed to Capitol Records. The group's first single for Capitol, "The Way You Look Tonight," did very well on the pop charts, and its follow-up, "When I Fall in Love," reached the Top Ten in late 1961. Though the group only reached that plateau one more time, with the 1968 medley "Goin' Out of My Head/Can't Take My Eyes Off You" (the same year Jim's brother Gary Pike stepped in for Engemann), successful album sales to adult listeners and popular concert tours kept the group going long after many of their similar contemporaries had died off. Another Pike brother, Donny, replaced Jim in 1974, and the Lettermen formed their own Alfa Omega Records in 1979, sporadically releasing albums of new material even into the 1990s. Jim Pike and Bob Engemann later formed Reunion (with Ric de Azevedo), a group that released several albums for Collectables. ~ John Bush, Rovi

Why these guys never got get their Just Due, I just don't know. The best group ever! Romantic and Harmonized just so good. I get chills just listening to them. No one seems to give them any credit but I have always loved them. Guess that tells you how old I am but when in the military I loved hearing them sing of things that mattered. It took me away from the essence of war for a time.
Love the Lettermen, but LOVE the REUNION with the Pike brothers

One of my favorites since I started listening to music.
My wife and I choose 'The Way you Look Tonite as our song in 1961. We'll be married 47 next month (May). In 2000 we were driving thru a small town in New Hampshire, and we stopped at a little shoppe. It had a carousel with cards from each year on it. We took one for her (1945) and me one for 1936. As we read them, on the one for 1936 the song of the year was (u guessed it) The Way You Look Tonight. It was our destiny to be soulmates.

Ron Sholar and my girlfriend, Linda Rodriquez, went to the the all night Long Beach school dance, we when from Milikan. Where is Linda Rod?
My wife and I saw and heard them New Year's Eve 1973 at the Riviera in Las Vegas. Co- hosted with Debbie Reynolds.
Saw them at my college's Spring Weekend in the 60's--wonder f u l !
my favorite group over all these years
In the 60's they made the college concert tour. Great voices and arrangements . Simpler times, and they were made because of music like this.

MY FATHER WAS RIGHT THESE GUYS ARE GOOD
Their version of the song--Again- - - is phenomenal;n o t only one of their best songs but the best version I`ve ever heard of that wonderful song!
Memories.... . m e m o r i e s . . . . . g o o d memories! I'm hoping their college hits album will come along on this feed.

the best group of its kind ever

My wife and I love the Lettermen's music. Although their live performances do include some new songs, Tony is smart to keep doing the songs that made them a hit back in the 60's. They continue to pack out the music halls where they perform and hope they will continue doing that for many years to come.
Reminiscent of a more innocent time and place in this nations history that's been lost forever. How sad . . .
wish today's music was as good as this

Growning up, my parents listened to their records all the time. This music makes me think of a simpler time - the 60's! I just loved their music.
Yes,ditto all the comments. Nothing like young love !

They come to Reno once a year and put on a great show.

I saw them in a concert at Western Ky U in 1968, they were fabulous and a big hit in a packed Diddle Arena. Still listen to them, what memories.
Check out a trio called "Reunion", Two of them are former Lettermen. They are still doing concerts. We booked them for a fundraiser here in San Clemente two years ago and our audience loved them.
love the lettermen!!! Didnt the association also do this song
Their vocal harmony makes them a classic for all time.
lawtofluv
what a comeback where have these guys been
Great Harmony.
The Lettermen have been one of my all-time favorites. Each song leaves me with special memories of the 60's.
donnagay1
ha, another myth of my childhood dispelled. I have always thought this was a Chad and Jeremy song.
judithf1413
Great
I appreciated them as a teenager.

Great harmony
launger
WOW Brings back so many great memories
Beautiful harmonies!!
One of the greatest 60's trio's to ever hit the Big Time.
Calm? Cold War, Bay of Pigs, Vietnam, Civil Rights only the music was calm. Or am I ten years later?
charleso6

There is no Greater Love? My record is so worn out that I don't
want to play it - and there songs are not on Pandora.

The Lettermen are without a doubt tops on my list. I started listening to them as a teenager in the 60s...and have been to a few concerts. Attended one about a month ago and I was not disappointed . They still have that marvelous sound I love.
Ahhhh, now this brings back memories of a more calm, more peacful world back when we were all kids.
Love their sound! One of the few musical groups from the 60's, that garnered my Dad's approval.
My mistake! There wasn't a female in The Sandpipers.
The Sandpipers were in this same musical scene as the Lettermen but with a lady in their ranks could do harmonies without songs sounding so similar.
