Who was/is Bobby Louis ? - CDs, Vinyl LPs, DVD and more

There were two singers named Bobby Lewis—the leather-lunged R&B vocalist from Indianapolis who topped the pop charts in 1961 with his insomniac anthem Tossin’ And Turnin’ and a Kentucky-born country artist frequently aboard the ‘60s/’70s C&W hit parade—and one Bobby Louis, who began and ended his recording career on Capitol in 1959. This Bobby was in the orbit of East Texas songsmith Jack Rhodes, who penned A Satisfied Mind, Silver Threads And Golden Needles, and several Gene Vincent classics including Woman Love. Louis and Rhodes wrote the Coasters-influenced novelty Adult Western, half of Bobby’s Ken Nelson-produced Capitol debut. Bobby and Jack were joined by J.D. Fleetwood in creating the teen ballad flip Love At First Sight. They also supplied half of Bobby’s Capitol encore, the tuneful ballad I’m A Coward. It was paired with the hand-clapping rocker Cell Of Love, the brainchild of Rhodes and another member of his stable, Johnny Fallin.
