“My Love, Forgive Me” (Amore Scusami)

(V. Pallavicini, S. Lee, B. Mescoil)

Columbia 43131

No. 16 January 2, 1965




Robert was born Stanley Applebaum  on November  26, 1 933,  in Lawrence, Massachusetts, and raised in

Edmonton, Canada.   He sang in church choirs and with local orchestras before winning a scholarship to the

opera school of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto.   There he studied acting and singing, making

many theater and TV appearances.  In 1954, he came to New York City to try his luck at Broadway, but

nothing panned out, so for four months he sold stationery in Gimbel’s department store.   Returning to

Canada, he won a leading role in the CBCs production of Little Women.   Numerous other theatrical

productions followed.


Stanley’s transformation into “Robert      Goulet” occurred when he was cast as Sir. Lancelot–opposite

Richard Burton and Julie Andrews–in the Broadway production of Camelot.   Columbia Records offered the

saccharine singer a contract, and for years Goulet’s easy-listening LPs graced   Billboard’s top pop albums



Before “My Love, Forgive Me,” Robert did manage to chart with a recording of “What Kind Of Fool Am I? “

(#89, 1962); his follow-up to “My Love,” “Summer Sounds”  (#58, 1965), also made the Hot 100. He

continues to appear on TV variety programs, and in musical productions like Brigadoon, Carousel, and Kiss

Me Kate.
