The prolific, versatile BOBBY DAY enjoyed one of the more convoluted careers in R&B and R&R, singing with countless vocal groups and recording under many pseudonyms.
He remains perhaps best known for the original hit version of 'Rockin' Robin', a million-seller for him in 1958 and a song subject to countless covers/revivals over the years.
He also charted with 'Little Bitty Pretty One', 'Buzz-Buzz-Buzz', 'Over And Over', 'The Bluebird, The Buzzard And The Oriole', 'That's All I Want', 'Gotta New Girl', 'My Blue Heaven' and 'Gee Whiz'.
All are included on this compilation, which traces Bobby's journey from his early 50s Jump Blues and Doo Wop outings to his subsequent solo career, across eight different groups, including The Hollywood Flames and Bob & Earl, and thirteen record labels.
A great many of these early sides are virtually impossible to find elsewhere on CD, making this a genuinely essential set.
