Digitally remastered reissue. This album originally arrived on the heels of seven consecutive million-selling singles in mid-1958, a year in which no less than eight of his songs would hit the Top 40. The album itself did nothing to alter Boone's position as a top teen idol, second only to Elvis. But it did remove any vestige of doubt as to who was America's singer of popular songs with the broadest appeal. That matter, though, was likely settled a few months earlier when he edged out Elvis as favorite male singer of 1957. But if further proof was needed, Stardust's overwhelming success provided it. The album rose to #2 on the charts and stayed in the Top 40 for 32 weeks. It is the quintessential Pat Boone vocal performance, and it absolutely established him as one of the great ballad singers of our time.
