Bobby Day
Robins Bluebirds Buzzards & Orioles CD


The prolific, versatile Bobby Day enjoyed one of the more convoluted careers in Rhythm & Blues and Rrock 'n' Roll, singing with countless vocal groups and recording under many pseudonyms.
Best known for the original hit version of ‘Rockin’ Robin’, a million-seller in 1958 and a 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 collection which traces Bobby Day's journey from his early 1950s 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.
Many of these early cuts are almost impossible to find elsewhere on CD, making this a genuinely essential set.
