He was the lead singer with The Limeliters between 1959 and 1963, and had a prolific solo career, recording on various labels. Glenn was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and attended St. John's College in Annapolis, Maryland. In 1957 he was one of the first singers to record the traditional "The House of the Rising Sun" for Elektra Records. Among other career highlights, Yarbrough provided vocals for the Rankin/Bass animated versions of The Hobbit (1977) and The Return of the King (1980), singing songs such as "The Road Goes Ever On" and "Frodo of the Nine Fingers." He also sang the title song in the holiday classic, The Christmas That Almost Wasn't (1966). Glenn Yarbrough's major hit on single records was "Baby the Rain Must Fall" (the theme tune from the film of the same name), which reached #12 pop, #2 easy listening in 1965, and according to Chartmasters of Covington, Louisiana was one of the top 100 songs of 1965.
