BOBBY FULLER FOUR - THE MAGIC TOUCH
Bobby, a Texan who relocated to Los Angeles, has one of the most tragic stories in the entire history of pop music. Obviously murdered, his death was ruled a suicide by the LAPD, and the murder has never been solved.
Bobby (along with his brother Randy) fronted a band that took strong inspiration from Buddy Holly, and also incorporated sounds from more contemporary sources. Their brief recording career is full of gems, and this single, with its strong r&B drive, is probably my favorite.
There's also a great demo version of this song (which was not released at the time it was recorded) by Melba Moore.
This was Bobby's final release, and inexplicably it did not hit the charts. This song should have been MASSIVE.
