Robins, Bluebirds, Buzzards And Orioles: The Bobby Day Story on Jasmine Records

Bobby Day - Robins, Bluebirds, Buzzards & Orioles: The Bobby Day Story 1952-1962


  • £10.99

The prolific and versatile Bobby Day enjoyed one of the more convoluted careers in R&B and rock'n'roll history, 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. 

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 50's 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, making this a genuinely essential set.
