This gramophone record was #1 in the U.S. Billboard magazine chart and earned a gold disc. Other hits for Lund were “(I’d Like to Get You on a) Slow Boat to China”, “What’ll I Do”, “You Call Everybody Darlin’” and “Peg O’ My Heart”. Blue Skies, My Blue Heaven. He also recorded Mona Lisa.

Lund also worked in two shows that closed before scheduled Broadway openings, We Take the Town (1962), as Robert Preston’s standby; and Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1966). He appeared in The Molly Maquires and Greatest American Hero.
