Charles Bobby - Alligators, Sprockets & Bended Knees (2CD) (CD)€18,00
Although he remains perhaps best known for ’See You Later Alligator’, a worldwide hit for Bill Haley & His Comets, Louisiana-born singer/songwriter BOBBY CHARLES penned several other R&R/R&B classics.
He also enjoyed a parallel recording career in the 50s, during the course of which he registered national R&B hits like ’Later Alligator’ and ’Time Will Tell’, and regional successes like ’Why Did You Leave’, ’Take It Easy, Greasy’, and ’Laura Lee’.
These sides are included on this compilation, which anthologises his early recording career, comprising everything that Bobby recorded for Chess and Imperial between 1955-62.
Also included, by way of ’bonus tracks’, are well-known covers of eight of his songs, by Bill Haley, Fats Domino, John Fred, Clarence ’Frogman’ Henry and Johnnie Allan, all of which were significant hits.
This is the most comprehensive collection of Bobby Charles’ early career currently available.
