John Rowles - "Cheryl Moana Marie" (1970)


John Rowles - "Cheryl Moana Marie" (Billboard #64, entered 1/2/71). Written by Nat Kipner and John Rowles. Produced by Don Costa. 45: "Cheryl Moana Marie"/"The Love I Had with You" (Kapp 1970). LP: Cheryl Moana Marie (Kapp 1970).

The big voice of John Rowles, New Zealand's Engelbert Humperdinck, sailed with enough regularity on Hawaiian airwaves to give the impression of being local. "Cheryl Moana Marie" (a Don Costa production and arrangement) was Rowles' only single to reach the US charts, although "She's All I Got" and "Juanita Chiquita" were even bigger Rowles records in the islands.
