Bobby Day - Ain't Gonna Cry No More
Here’s another classy jiver from Mr Rockin’ Robin, Bobby Day. Born Robert James Byrd, this isn’t the Bobby Byrd associated with James Brown. However, by 1959, when Ain't Gonna Cry No More was released, Bobby Day had already scored a hit record with the Hollywood Flames and Buzz Buzz Buzz
. Day also wrote and released the original Little Bitty Pretty Thing
. In the ‘60s, with his Hollywood Flames bandmate, Earl Nelson, he formed Bob & Earl. In 1963, Bob & Earl had a hit with Harlem Shuffle, but by this time Day was again pursuing a solo career and Earl Nelson was onto his second Bob.
