Bob London and the Bobbies (GEE - BEE)

Featured on the blog this month is a obscure record by a group called Bob London and the Bobbies. The matrix numbers on the record shows that the 45 was released in 1966. The group was talented, both songs are very good with nice vocals."Times in my life" is exceptional with it's jangle folk garage rock sound. It certainly had the potential to become a hit. So far I have not found any information of where the band might have hailed from. It is a mystery. I'm hoping that someone might have information/ knowledge about the group that would help to better remember them.

  1. great find Johnny, love both sides

  2. Likely location is Detroit, where Ernie Stratton of Ernstrat Music BMI owned a publishing company called Ernstrat Enterprises, with the same account number (927) as this 45.

  3. Hello Michael. I was reading awhile back that a collector had found some copies of the 45 in Michigan, so Detroit sounds right. Thank you for your research.

  4. Hello, I just found a copy in a small record store in Connecticut. Thanks for your information on this one. Well worth the dollar I paid.
