I agree with Darren that their timing was a huge factor in their consideration as a Hall of Fame act among the early stars of rock-n-roll. Only You, The Great Pretender, Twilight Time, and Smoke Gets In Your Eyes is an impressive run of hits. They also appeared in several Rock-n-Roll movies in the 1950s, and were likely a huge presence on the airwaves along their more rockin' counterparts.

Only You was also an early example of a record by Black artists (I hesitate to call it rhythm and blues - it's really more pop) out-charting a White cover version - by the Hilltoppers.
