    Description

    Bobby Day 78 Group of 4 (Class, 1958). Born Robert Byrd, Day had formed the Hollywood Flames in 1950 at the age of 20, enjoying a #11 hit with "Buzz, Buzz, Buzz" in 1957. Later that same year, he had a minor hit with "Little Bitty Pretty One", a song he wrote, but one that Thurston Harris had a bigger hit version of. In 1958, Day had his two biggest hits. "Rockin' Robin" and "Over and Over" were flip sides. "Robin" overshadowed its flip, going to #2, while "Over and Over" peaked at #41. The latter proved its potential later when the Dave Clark Five took it to #1 in 1965. Included in this grouping are three copies of the double-sided hit, all phenomenal NM 8 copies. Two have the typical maroon label, the other a black label. The other record in the lot is a NM 8 copy of the follow-up to "Rockin' Robin", and came out in late 1958: "The Bluebird, The Buzzard & The Oriole", which peaked at #54 on Billboard's Pop chart. From the GRT Collection.
