Reese Francis Clifford III, 8 October 1942, Berwyn, Illinois, USA. Buzz Clifford is best known for his one US Top 10 single, ‘Baby Sittin’ Boogie’, in 1961. Clifford learned to play guitar as a child and, enamoured of television westerns, created his own cowboy songs. After winning a talent contest in New Jersey as a teenager, he was signed to Columbia Records. His first single, ‘Hello Mr. Moonlight’, did not chart but ‘Baby Sittin’ Boogie’, a novelty rock ‘n’ roll number, charted on the pop, country and R&B charts. Clifford went on to record further singles for Columbia Records and became a producer for ABC-Paramount in the late 60s. He attempted a comeback, first as a folk rock singer for RCA Records and later as a long-haired country rock artist, in 1969. In the same year, he released a final album on Dot Records that did not reach the charts.
