Ballad of the Green Berets

Wasnt this song a number 1 hit in like 1963? During the Vietnam War.

Staff Sergeant Barry Sadler had a major hit with "Ballad of the Green Berets" in 1966.

Incidently the ONLY other hit that has "Green Beret" in its title was Nancy Ames song "He Wore The Green Beret" which was also a (very minor) hit in 1966

1963 hit

The group was the Essex, "Easier said then done"

Thanks, as you say it was a hit in 1963 not 1966

Jim Reeves was no 1 for 5 weeks omitted?

Jim Reeves was no 1 in the UK with "Distant Drums" which is listed.

1963 hit by black us group men and women all us marines - one was in my USC unit

I am looking for a 1963 or 1964 us hit record by a black group of men and women all members of the us marine corps

The obvious candidate would be "Ballad of the Green Berets" by Staff Sergeant Barry Sadler. Except that was 1966 and he wasn't black (we're almost certain).

So, no we don't have a clue.

Paul Butterfield Blues Band

Hello,

Too bad he didn't make the top 100. His album 'East-West' with Michael Bloomfield and Elvin Bishop (guitars) was a ground breaker. It should probably be noted that Paul Butterfield was the only headliner at The Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco that never made it big. On the other hand, his history of consistently being the top act indicates his immense impact on fans and other musicians. In fact, he headlined when Cream first came to San Francisco. Then again, Jimi Hendrix was 3rd billed at Fillmore his first time...

All the best,

Rick Calic

P.S. I have about 180 Fillmore Handbills that confirm this info...
