McLean’s transition to international stardom began in 1971 with the release of “American Pie.” “American Pie” was recorded on 26th May 1971 and a month later received its first radio airplay on New York’s WNEW-FM and WPLJ-FM to mark the closing of The Fillmore East, the famous New York concert hall.
Thirty years later, “American Pie” was voted number 5 in a poll of the 365 “Songs of the Century” compiled by the Recording Industry Association of America and the National Endowment for the Arts.
“American Pie” was issued as a double A-side single in November 1971 and charted within a month. Interest from the media and public sent the single to #1 in the USA and Don to international super-stardom.
The second single “Vincent” charted on 18th March 1972 going on to reach US#12, UK#1. The “American Pie” album remained at #1 in the UK for seven weeks in 1972, and in the UK charts for 53 consecutive weeks. In the wake of “American Pie”, McLean became a major concert attraction. He continues to tour the world and release new material.
