Actor Lorne Greene enjoyed a brief recording career in the mid-'60s, when he was at the height of his popularity thanks to his role as Ben Cartwright on the long-running Western series "Bonanza". In the meantime, NBC, hoping to capitalize on the series' popularity, brought several cast members into the recording studio. Greene released his first album in 1963, and the following year he scored a surprise number one smash with "Ringo", a Western story song he narrated rather than sang. Greene charted a couple more times with 1965's "The Man" and 1966's "Waco", and released a total of five albums on RCA Victor from 1963 to 1966. Afterwards, he returned to acting full-time, most notably appearing in the TV miniseries "Roots" and starring in the sci-fi series "Battlestar Galactica", as well as narrating numerous documentaries.
