Bobby Goldsboro - Honey/Country & Pop Singer/SP#5537
Bobby Goldsboro (1941--) - American country and pop singer-songwriter. He had a string of Pop and Country hits during the 1960s and 1970s, including his signature #1 classic "Honey", which sold well over one million copies in the United States. Goldsboro's solo career picked up steam with the "Top Ten" hit "See the Funny Little Clown." The self-penned single reached No. 9 on the U.S. national charts in early 1964. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc. It was to be the first of a string of similar awards. Goldsboro would go on to have 11 Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, and 12 on the country chart. In 1966 he recorded "Too Many People" with "It's Too Late" on the B-side. Although not a prolific performer of dance music both of these songs were popular within Northern soul and were played at Wigan Casino. His biggest hit was 1968's "Honey", a maudlin tear-jerker about the death of a man's young wife. The song, written by Bobby Russell, was recorded in one take. It topped the U.S. chart for four weeks, reached Number 2 in the UK Singles Chart on two separate occasions (1968 and 1975), and was a #1 single in Australia. The single sold in excess of one million copies. It also became his first country hit, and marked a career transition, as his songs became more successful on the country chart than on the pop side. Goldsboro's last "Top 40" hit on the "Hot 100" came in late 1973, but he remained a fixture in the country top 40 into the early 1980s. From 1973 to 1975, Goldsboro hosted the syndicated television variety series, The Bobby Goldsboro Show. One of Goldsboro's compositions, "With Pen in Hand", was recorded by several artists, including a Grammy-nominated pop version by Vikki Carr that reached the "Top 40," in 1969; Johnny Darrell had taken the song to #3 on the U.S. country chart a year earlier. Goldsboro's "The Cowboy and The Lady" became a "Top 10" country hit as "The Cowgirl and The Dandy" for Brenda Lee in 1980; Dolly Parton had also covered it in 1977, and John Denver had a hit with the song in 1981. "Summer (The First Time)", a 1973 reminiscence about a first sexual experience, was a Top 20 hit in the U.S. and the UK. Using a powerful repeating piano riff, 12-string guitar, some organ playing, and a dramatic orchestral string arrangement, the song was suggestive enough to spark some controversy. A follow up, "Hello Summertime", was written by Roger Cook and Roger Greenaway and hit #14 in the UK in late 1974. Goldsboro retired from full-time performing in the 1980s. In the 1990s, he scored the soundtrack to the CBS situation comedy, Evening Shade. In 1995, he launched the children's television series The Swamp Critters of Lost Lagoon.8" x 10" black and white glossy photograph, signed in ball point pen. #5537**Look all the way to the bottom of the listing to see all the photos and responses to questions asked, sometimes containing revisions to the description, after a offer has been placed, they are all part of the item's description.*** Remember, any autographs I sell, I stand behind 100%, look at my 100% positive response if you need more assurance.
