Harold Kenneth Dorman (1926-1988) was an American rock & roll singer/songwriter.
Dorman wrote a song called "Mountain of Love", which he released as a single in 1960 on the "Rita" record label. The song became a hit in the U.S., reaching #7 on the Black Singles chart and #21 on the Billboard Hot 100. Though it was Dorman's only hit record, it proved to be a popular song for covers; Charley Pride, Johnny Rivers, and Ronnie Dove all hit the U.S. charts with the song, and it was also recorded by Bruce Springsteen, The Beach Boys, Tommy Cash, and Narvel Felts.
Bear Family Records reissued an album of Dorman's recordings in 1999. "Mountain of Love" is a song written by Harold Dorman (also known as Harold Kenneth Dorman). Dorman released his version as a single in 1960. It performed well, becoming a top forty hit on the Billboard Hot 100. It was the highest charting single of his career.
In 1964, Johnny Rivers released his remake as a single. This version also proved popular, charting at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100.
In 1968, singer Ronnie Dove had a minor hit when he released his version as a single on Diamond Records.
