Just one hit but a classic.

Sixty years I've known and enjoyed this record, and I never realized before that he was African-American, although now I do know, I wonder how I could have got it wrong in the first place.

Funny, I had the same experience (albeit some years ago).

Somewhere I have a PP CD that includes an alternate recording of his hit - seemingly, some producer said "That's a nice song, Phil, but the chords are all wrong! Here, let me fix it for you!" Needless to say it didn't have the magic of the "wrong" version.

I like this one, too:
