A legend such as Bobby Hart really doesn’t need an introduction; as a songwriter for The Monkees, Jay & The Americans, Little Anthony & The Imperials and so on. For several decades, he (along with late partner Tommy Boyce) created some of the most memorable songs that have stood the test of time and trends and are just as wonderful to listen to today.
This video for “Hurt So Bad” is from the originally-released-in-1980 The First Bobby Hart Solo Album, which was released in only a few foreign territories and then disappeared. 7a Records has now reissued this fine album, along with the video for Bobby’s own version of his smash hit for Little Anthony in 1965. A different take, it has a groove that fits with the here and now.
So sit back and enjoy!
