This is sort of a gallery showing of Tab Hunter album and 45 covers. But for details, the bio from Amazon covers nicely his career:
Born July 11, 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 40 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. Hunter recorded for Warner Brothers, drifting towards both traditional pop and smooth country. Hunter continued working in films and on TV throughout the 60’s and 70’s, and his career took an upswing in the 1980’s when he starred in such campy films as John Waters’ “Polyester,” “Grease 2,” and the horse-opera spoof “Lust in the Dust.”
You can find hundreds of images of Tab Hunter with a google image search, many (gasp) with his shirt off, but I’m focusing here only on his album and 45 rpm covers. (No, I don’t own all of these, just the CD and “R.F.D.” LP.) Damn, he was nice to look at.
A pretty good CD compilation was released in 2005, with a booklet full of choice pix.
