As a young man, Californian Chris Montez’s band attracted the attention of Monogram Records, with ‘All You Had To Do Was Tell Me’ becoming a local hit. In 1962, Chris' single, "Let's Dance" hit the top 10 and in 1963, while in Liverpool with Tommy Roe, his opening act was a new English group, The Beatles. With 3 years on the road behind him, Chris came home in 1965 to complete his education and join a new label, A & M. Herb Alpert dropped in on one of Chris' first sessions and suggested that he try a soft ballad sound. It was a more conservative style than Chris would have preferred but Alpert's instincts were good and the hits "The More I See You," "There Will Never Be Another You," "Call Me" and "Time After Time" followed in quick succession. Chris later left A & M, signed with CBS International, and amassed a string of hits outside the U.S. that has firmly established him as an international recording star.
