An important cog in Los Angeles' doo wop community during the '50s, Bobby Day wrote three often-covered early rock classics in 1957-1958. Day was part of the Hollywood Flames, one of the area's top RB vocal groups, and briefly part of Bob Earl, later to hit without Day on Harlem Shuffle. Day formed his own group, the Satellites, in 1957, cutting the original Little Bitty Pretty One for Class Records. A nearly identical cover by Thurston Harris beat the original out, so Day countered with the driving Rockin' Robin in 1958, an RB chart-topper. Its flip, Over and Over, was a hit in its own right, although the Dave Clark Five's 1965 revival is better remembered today. Day waxed a few more hits for Class in 1959, including That's All I Want and a derivative The Bluebird, the Buzzard the Oriole, flitting from label to label during the '60s. ~ Bill Dahl, Rovi
