A friend of mine has released his CD on iTunes. It was originally produced a few years ago but he has recently been looking at reviving his music career and decided to put his CD “Now” up on iTunes. You can find it here Bobby Kris “Now”. In case you’ve not heard of Bobby Kris, he was the frontman for Bobby Kris and the Imperials in the early ’60’s. They released a successful cover of “Walk on By” which was originally penned by Burt Bacharach/Hal David and turned into a hit by Dionne Warwick. The Imperials covered the song in 1965 and it charted well for them.
The band split when some of the members joined Bruce Cockburn’s Flying Circus in 1967. Bobby went on to become a teacher in Toronto and now owns an organic and natural food store that delivers to customers around the GTA. The store is called The Clean Food Connection and customers are welcome to visit any of the three locations or place orders through the website.
Now by Bobby Kris is a rhythm and blues based disc featuring a new cover of Walk on By as well as a couple of songs written by Bobby Kris. The disc was produced by Sam Reid, keyboardist for Glass Tiger. Keep an eye open for new releases from Bobby Kris.
