Bobby Martin

There is a wide selection of performers named Bobby Martin with whom an Ohio rocker from the late '50s could conceivably be mixed up with. In addition, one of this performers' most widely distributed songs -- if such a description can be doled out to material obscure as this -- is entitled "Sleepy Time Blues," a notion that apparently kept several other songwriters and recording artists awake. Different songs with this identical title have been recorded by artists such as jazzman Jabbo Smith, folkie Ralph McTell and rhythm and blues producer Lester Bihari.

Martin's version was cut at what seems to have been his first recording session, undertaken for the Ruby label in May of 1957. Leading a band known as Bobby Martin & the Tune Twisters, the singer also cut the demanding "Give Your Heart to Me." His involvement with Ruby continued with "I Ain't Gonna Rock," not such a popular notion in an era when rock & roll was taking over but an affront to English teachers nonetheless. "There Ain't No Nothin' Tonight," a possible pass at existentialism, was among the songs he recorded prior to making a grand move involving record labels as well as his combo's name. In 1958, Martin began recording for Bel-Kay and his group became known as Bobby Martin & the Rockin' Tune Twisters, totally contradicting the previously mentioned song title. These may have been his final recordings, depressingly entitled "Back to School Rock" and "Played for a Fool." In the late '50s he worked as a disc jockey and performer on WHBN radio out of Harrodsburg, Kentucky. ~ Eugene Chadbourne
