St. Louis Music Corporation published this sheet music with words and music by Ivory Joe Hunter. The cover features Pat Boone on Dot Records. Pat Boone was doing good R&B songs, and doing them in his own smooth style, which was quite different from the way they had been done originally. Some found it laughable, but the formula worked and the records sold well. He took on Little Richard, recording Tutti Frutti and Long Tall Sally, both of which he made into big hits. He was successful with the Five Keys’ Gee Whittakers! and Ivory Joe Hunter’s I Almost Lost My Mind, the latter of which in 1956 became Boone’s second number one hit. He covered Joe Turner’s Chains Of Love, and had another number one with Don’t Forbid Me. Music, for piano, vocals, ukulele and guitar, covers two inside pages. There are 3 hole-punches along the left edge that is present in photo.
