1961 – Ann-Margaret I Just Don’t Understand

Ann-Margaret’s recorded her first album in Hollywood. Marty Paich produced the album and conducted the orchestra, but neither of the singles from the album caught any traction.

Her second album was produced in Nashville by Chet Atkins, resulting in an obvious Country music influence. The first single from the album, I Just Don’t Understand, reached #17 on the Hot 100 in 1961. It was her first and only top forty record.

Fortunately, starring in State Fair in 1962 and Bye-Bye Birdie in 1963 turned her into a major star and she no longer had to depend on hit singles.

An up-and-coming British group recorded I Just Don’t Understand in 1963, but they didn’t release the recording until 1964. The group? The Beatles.
