HERE’S ED TOWNSEND FROM 1958

Ed townsend

 

for your love 45

In 1958 Ed Townsend took his ballad, "For Your Love" to Capitol Records
hoping Nat “King” Cole would be interested in recording it, but, impressed
with his voice, Capitol signed him to record it himself. Townsend went on
Dick Clark’s American Bandstand the very first month the show aired. He
was an overnight success with the song and it reached #13 on the Billboard
pop chart.
