Bobby byrd - here for the party

For our annual “winter blues” observance we’re highlighting four recent releases: Blues With Horns Vol. 1 by Chris Daniels & The Kings with Freddy Gowdy; the Mighty Mo Rodgers & Baba Sissoko collaboration Griot Blues ; and from the Catfood label, James Armstrong’s Blues Been Good to Me and Johnny Rawls’ Waiting for the Train .

Day's best known songwriting efforts were " Over and Over ", later made popular by The Dave Clark Five in 1965, [4] [5] and " Little Bitty Pretty One ", popularized by Thurston Harris in 1957, [6] Clyde McPhatter in 1962, and the Jackson Five in 1972. However, Day is most remembered for his 1958 solo recording of the Billboard Hot 100 No. 2 hit, Rockin' Robin, written by Leon Rene under the pseudonym Jimmie Thomas. It sold over one million copies and was awarded a gold record . [7] "Rockin' Robin" was a song covered by Bob Luman at Town Hall Party on October 28, 1958, The Hollies in 1964, Gene Vincent in 1969, Michael Jackson in 1972, and by McFly in 2006.
