Artist: George Hamilton IV
Author: John Loudermilk
As G. Hamilton & The Country Gentlemen. Nationally distributed (and a hit) by ABC Paramount.
Johnson Brothers [as A Rose And A Candy Bar]
Jim Croce [posthumous]
Marilyn Manson [miles away from the original]
Not about the baseball legend but the candy bar. Since Baby Ruth's weren't shipped overseas, George Hamilton re-recorded it as A Rose And A Candy Bar for the English market. Shortly after the release of the original, Colonial Records was sued by the manufacturers of Baby Ruth Candy Bars..., until they realized the hit helped sell considerably.
