Very few stars had it all – formidable acting chops, stunning good looks, and a voice capable of enthralling everyone from teenyboppers to grandmothers. Tab Hunter had all that and more, and Eric records is pleased to present his first-ever authorized CD compilation Young Love: The Best Of Tab Hunter.

This exciting album features all seven of Tab’s charted singles (the original 45rpm versions), including the smash title song which was #1 for six weeks in 1957! In addition to those fab 45s – songs like “Ninety-Nine Ways” and “Apple Blossom Time” – Young Love includes tracks taken from Tab’s rare Dot and Warner Brothers repertoire. These songs – 10 never before on CD – were selected by fans in a poll conducted at www.tabhunter.com

All tracks were remastered from the original master tapes – in stereo whenever possible (see details below).  For those of you who might have been unlucky enough to hear one of Tab’s early “unauthorized” CD collections (made from old records), the sound here is a revelation!  

Young Love includes a deluxe, 20-page, full-color booklet with dozens of candid photos and rare memorabilia from Tab Hunter’s personal collection, plus informative liner notes by noted music writer Greg Adams.

About Tab Hunter. Born 1931 in New York City, Arthur Geilen was raised in California by his mother. While working as a stable boy, he was discovered by James Dean’s agent, who snatched him up and christened him Tab Hunter. He made his first movie in 1950 and was soon starring in such films as “Damn Yankees,” “Battle Cry,” and “The Girl He Left Behind,” eventually appearing in over 50 movies.

Tab had little singing experience, but with a little coaching he became one of the first “teen idols” of rock music. He scored a #1 hit in 1957 with his very first single, “Young Love,” on Dot Records. Tab’s sudden recording success led his movie studio, Warner Brothers, to launch their now-storied record label. Hunter recorded several albums for Warners, drifting towards both traditional pop (When I Fall in Love, 1958) and smooth country (Tab Hunter RFD, 1960).

Hunter continued working in films and on TV throughout the ’60s and ’70s, and his career took an upswing in the 1980s when he starred in such campy films as John Waters’ Polyester, Grease 2, and the horse-opera spoof Lust in the Dust. In October 2005, he published his autobiography, Tab Hunter Confidential: The Making of a Movie Star, written with Eddie Muller.
