Bobby Goldsboro

Best remembered for his 1968 chart-topper, "Honey," singer/songwriter Bobby Goldsboro was born January 18, 1941 in Marianna, FL. After relocating to Dothan, AL, while in his teens, he went on to study at Auburn University, quitting school after his sophomore year to pursue music full-time. During the early '60s, Goldsboro played guitar in Roy Orbison's backing band, mounting a solo career in early 1964 and soon scoring a Top Ten hit with the self-penned "See the Funny Little Clown." His sophisticated yet sentimental vocal style yielded Top 40 entries throughout the middle of the decade, among them "Whenever He Holds You," "Little Things," "Voodoo Woman," "It's Too Late," and "Blue Autumn"; though Goldsboro primarily wrote and recorded his own material, he also notched a minor hit with the Burt Bacharach/Hal David novelty "Me Japanese Boy I Love You." "Honey," a maudlin tale about the tragic death of a young bride, remained at number one for five weeks in the spring of 1968, reaching the number two spot in the U.K. soon after and falling just shy of the top spot upon re-entering the British charts in 1975.

However, "Honey" was far and away the biggest of Goldsboro's career, and after returning to the Top 40 twice more in 1968 with "Autumn of My Life" and "The Straight Life," he was absent from the charts for over two years. He made an unexpected comeback in early 1971 when "Watching Scotty Grow" nearly reached the Top Ten, but outside of the follow-up, "Summer (The First Time)," his commercial heyday was over. Between 1973 and 1975 he hosted the syndicated television variety series The Bobby Goldsboro Show, next forming the Nashville-based House of Gold Music publishing firm. Goldsboro retired from performing during the mid-'80s to producing children's entertainment, including a number of audiobooks and television specials, the first of which, Easter Egg Mornin', premiered on the Disney Channel in 1991. Concurrently, he scored the CBS sitcom Evening Shade, and in 1995 launched the children's series The Swamp Critters of Lost Lagoon. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

One of my all time favorite artist. Honey being my favorite songs.
Summer was a great song, especially as I was around 17 at the time

Growing up a little boy in the 70's and named Scott, my mom used to sing Watching Scotty Grow to me. At my wedding we danced to it, now that she's passed away it brings both tears of pain and tears of joy to eyes at the same time.
I put him in a class of some of the very best artes of all time. Would love to hear more voiceds limde his. You can get in to a place of rest and fill the love that comes from his heart . Brings back many memeries back. Love to hear him when I was in Vietnam.

I first heard bobby sing in the 60's fell in love with his music and have loved it ever since. Truly a remarkable artist, brings back many good memories in a difficult time.
So great to find Bobby sons on Pandora! Blue Autumn was my favorite. They don't make voices or songs like that any more. So many memories, in the 60's.

No voice quite like his. Very charming and kind in live concerts as well; we always got our money's worth and he always took time to stay and talk and sign autographs. I miss him. I love "Watchin' Scotty Grow"
I loved his music, when i got divorced his song AUTUMN OF MY LIFE CAME OUT; Icried every time i heard that song, And ia EX MARINE
My Parents used to watch the Bobby Goldsboro show on T.V. when I was 11 years old. I was born in 1962 and my mom loved his music. I still love to hear Honey and it brings a tear to my eyes when I hear that song.
@ Dori = I had heard that he was in litigation with the record/label over the rights to his music. Thus why he probably got aggravated over the whole ordeal & just never resumed. He kinda dropped off the face. Not heard or seen of him in years.

wish he'd release music again!

What a great voice.Love Pen in hand. Wish he had made more music.
maryanne_ste p h e n s
Went to a concert of his about 25-30 years ago for my birthday. I loved his music and I still do. Just don't ever here about him any more. His music is at the top of the list as far as I am concerned. Miss ya Bobby!
In the 60's I would lay-out in the sun and listen to your music. It was a sweet and great time of my life.
Way before my time but so very awesome. Summer is the best!!!!!

Honey & With Pen In hand have to be the greatest!!!

People who are to young to remember think the 60s were about revolution. They really cant appreciate what was really going on. Just look at the charts.
I have always loved Bobby, I still have every one of his albums. It drives my husband nuts, but I love him anyway!!! I will never get tired of listening to Bobby Goldsboro.
Please play "Honey" and "Watching Scotty Grow" Thank you. I like Bobby Goldsboro
