Bobby Parker hailed from the tiny town of Los Angeles, California. Starting in the mid-50s Parker began work as a hired gun, working for such acts as Bo Diddley, Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson. Parker recorded a small handful of singles under his name and we feature today his second solo single, released on V-Tone Records in July of 1961. The song is the Parker composed, Watch Your Step, and it became a favorite of the harder British Invasion bands. Dig that bitchin' guitar tone.
Until next time, we'll see you On The Flip-Side!
