Personnel: Bobby Day (vocals).
Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
Unknown Contributor Role: Bobby Day.
Bobby Day's 1958 hit "Rockin' Robin" is one of the most memorable and recycled oldies of them all. Day, an R&B artist who fared better on the pop charts, never repeated the success of his one big hit. Golden Classics collects all but one of Day's chart hits on the Class label (the minor hit "Gotta New Girl" is omitted, although its B-side is here), showing him to be a fine R&B vocalist with strong pop inclinations. "The Bluebird, the Buzzard and the Oriole" is a blatant attempt to repeat the "Rockin' Robin" formula, but Day's other recordings are more varied. England's Ace label has a lengthier and better-annotated Bobby Day anthology available as an import for only a few dollars more, but Golden Classics is a serviceable collection and includes most of his important cuts. ~ Greg Adams
