Bobby Vee: The Drugstore's Rockin' - Suzie Baby (CD)

1-CD (Digipak) with 32-page booklet, 35 tracks. Total playing time approx. 79 min.

  • Our Bobby Vee retrospective focuses on the teen idol's Rock 'n' Roll years (1959 - 1962) - and Vee could rock, and how!
  • Bobby Vee's career began in the wake of arguably the greatest tragedy in rock 'n' roll history: on Feb. 3, 1959, Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper - on tour as the 'Winter Dance Party' - were killed in an accident, and Bobby Vee, only 15 years old, stepped in as a replacement at the Moorhead show!
  • The young, successful producer Snuff Garnett saw great potential in Vee's Buddy Holly-inspired style, and with the string sound favored by Holly, made him a teenage superstar in pop as well.
  • Liner notes by Bill Dahl; many little-known photos and illustrations in the extensive booklet and carefully mastered recordings.

Bobby Vee was born Robert Thomas Velline in 1943 in Fargo, North Dakota. In stark contrast to the Coen brothers' gritty 1995 'Fargo' film drama, Bobby Vee's Rock 'n' Roll exudes the feel of teenage youth in those days. 

Not only was Bobby Vee a genuine teen idol during the early 1960s with a string of lighthearted smashes to his credit, he also knew how to rock, his strong Buddy Holly influence never far from the surface. Vee’s entry in Bear Family’s ‘The Drugstore’s Rockin’’ series, spanning 1959-1962, contains his debut single, Suzie Baby, through his first major hits for Los Angeles-based Liberty Records, Devil Or Angel and Rubber Ball, and the violin-enriched blockbusters Take Good Care Of My Baby and The Night Has A Thousand Eyes. But Bobby refused to abandon his ‘50s rock and roll roots—witness the five tracks culled from his splendid ‘Bobby Vee Meets The Crickets’ album with ex-Holly sideman Tommy Allsup on lead guitar. 

Nearly everything here was produced by Texas native Snuff Garrett, perhaps the youngest A&R man around then and one of the most successful. Garrett was a huge fan of Holly’s mature strings-drenched approach and introduced it to Liberty. Bobby Vee rode that delightfully lavish sound to full-fledged teen superstardom.

Bobby Vee

Real Name: Robert Thomas Velline Born: April 30, 1943 Hometown: Fargo, North Dakota Bobby came from a musical family. His father Sidney played the violin and piano, his uncle played sax, and his two older brothers, Bill and Sidney, Jr., both played guitar. Bobby learned to play the guitar in high school. He played for a while in a group called the Shadows with his brother Bill and friends Jim Stillman and Bob Korum. On February 3, 1959, when Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper, and Ritchie Valens were killed in a plane crash, the Shadows were asked to fill in on the scheduled show in Fargo, North Dakota.

Bobby was asked to sing with the group because he knew the lyrics of six of Buddy Holly's songs. The audience loved his performance so much that an executive from Lib-erty records contacted Bobby to sign with the label. Later that year, he had his first release on the label, "Suzy Baby." His first major hit was a song the Clovers had made popular in 1956, called "Devil Or Angel" which became a hit for Bobby during the summer of 1960. In July of 1961, he recorded his only number one national hit with the Carole King and Gerry Coffin tune "Take Good Care Of My Baby." .
