Biography

d. 28 February 1974. New York-based Bloom began his career during the 60s as one of several backroom entrepreneurs, along with Anders And Poncia, Artie Ripp and Levine/Reisnick, central to the Kama Sutra Records / Buddah Records group of labels. He also made several solo recordings, including ‘Love Don’t Let Me Down’ and ‘Count On Me’, worked with the Imaginations, and later formed a partnership with composer/producer Jeff Barry. Together, they contributed material for the Monkees, notably ‘Ticket On A Ferry Ride’ and ‘You’re So Good To Me’. Bloom’s singing career blossomed with the effervescent ‘Montego Bay’ which reached US number 8 and UK number 3 in 1970. This adept combination of bubblegum, calypso and rock was maintained on ‘Heavy Makes You Happy’ and The Bobby Bloom Album, which Barry produced. Bloom was killed in an accidental shooting in February 1974.
