According to Billboard, Boone was the second biggest charting artist of the late 1950s, behind only Elvis Presley but ahead of Ricky Nelson and the Platters, and was ranked at No. 9—behind the Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney but ahead of artists such as Aretha Franklin and the Beach Boys—in its listing of the Top 100 Top 40 Artists 1955–1995. Boone still holds the Billboard record for spending 220 consecutive weeks on the charts with one or more songs each week.
AllMusic Review by Arthur Rowe
Ol' White Shoes at his high-spirited, debonair best is what you get on this superb 1958 album release. Except for his Metal Mood CD (which came nearly 40 years later), Yes Indeed! is the most ambitious and enterprising album of his career. It displays most definitively his ability to not only get close to and comfortable with a new piece of music, but to transform it with delightful ease into a rich musical experience. His Star Dust album (from earlier in the year) proved his mastery of the popular ballad. With Yes Indeed!'s lighthearted, enthusiastic, and sophisticated mix, Pat Boone takes a giant step forward toward being the complete singer -- one who could do it all and do it wonderfully well.
