  #   Bobby & Laurie have struck top honours in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth

Tasmania and Brisbane…Their version of Roger Millers “Hitchhiker” has succeeded

In a way not even Mr.Miller himself could have dreamed of.  GO-SET!! Vol.1 No.17 May25 1966

 

  #  Around & Around

If Lou Richards can do it so can we. “we’ll pick up the tab of Bobby & Laurie’s shampoo bubbles for the next 12 months if their new side Hitchhiker (incidently a Roger Miller Number) doesn’t make a No.1 noise throughout the land.

                     GO-SET!! Vol1 No.17 May 25 1966

 

 #    Barberisms.

People have said that since “I Belong To With You” Bobby & Laurie haven’t managed to make a record up to that standard. I’m inclined to think they are right or at least I did- until I heard their new one called “hitchhiker”. To my mind it is the best they have ever done. The song was written by Roger Miller but never recorded by him, Bobby & Laurie are sending a copy to Mr Miller. He should do a cover version of their version. I doubt if he could do it much better than Bobby & Laurie though. Go-Set!! Vol 1 No.9 March 30 1966.

 

 

 #   Bobby & Laurie’s new LP is on the way up- by reputation- already- although it’s titled “Hitchhiker” it’s subtitled “Cum Sunt  Ambulant” which means “ Why they were walking” translation by the courtesy of Tony Geary- Albert Productions.

didn’t feel they could..” Through The Eyes Of Love” is an interesting swirling country ballad which

 been done, flip by Roger Miller sounds like Roger Miller.  Go-Set!! Vol5. No.20 May 16 1970

          Now that Laurie and the Revue have parted ways this has no chance of success. Australian records depends on

          personal promotion.  It’s a pity this group has broken up because their line-up was particularly refreshing in the

          local scene, as shown on this disc. One side has a female lead while the other side “not Born To Follow” Laurie

          sings the strange lyric line. it would have needed a bit of air-play.

                #    Bobby Bright is a success in Melbourne,  Bobby Bright, Adelaide boy who

               Has “done well” since he has been in Melbourne, recently signed a three

               Year contract to W&G Records…His first single released last week consists

              Of a track taken from Tommy Roe’s last album entitled “ There’s A Great Day

              A Comin” and the other side, his own composition with a country and western

               Feelin “ Girls Never Notice me”…Melbourne says that the Tommy Roe

               Composition will be the “A” side whereas   I feel that the flip will show up big

               In this State. It’s uptempo country and western with the title suggesting the

               Story. Bobby who is 19 has a great career in front of him if he continues to

              Perform with all the “action” that has made him such a popular figure in

              South Australia… (All he needs is a haircut.)

          # Bobby & Laurie followed up their debut 45 with three more GO! Singles (Someone, Judy Green,

             and Crazy Country Hop) and whilst all made Top5 in Melbourne, Interstate success was limited,

             the duo subsequently shifted to EMI and in 1966 achieved national NO.1 status with Hitchhiker

             following that up with another strong “Best’ LP……

                                               Dean Mittelhausen From The Vault  Vol.2 No.3 1990.

 

          # Bobby & Laurie’s “I Belong With You” was the GO! Labels debut EP release. It came out in mid

             1965 to cash in on the extraordinary popularity of the duo at the time. The EP sold well on the

             strength of the inclusion of the duo’s first hit but the most interesting aspect was that the remaining

             three tracks were never released on any other 45 or LP, making it quite attractive and collectable

             It’s not easy to find but the most common GO! EP.

                                               Sound recording page 5.)

 

                  # Bobby & Laurie’s self titled, and exceptional debut LP from this wacky duo, lots of evidence

                  of their later tougher sound with obscure covers, great beat numbers plus six excellent

                  originals. A few of the tracks show quite a deal of country influence (as mentioned in FTV#1)

                  but this adds a strange sort of charm to them. It’s enough to say that almost all tracks work.

                  And the added bonus is that only five of these fourteen tracks appear on 45’s.

                                        Dean Mittelhausen          From The Vault… Vol.1….No.4 1988.

 

               

               #  Bobby & Laurie’s debut LP released in August 1965 was a real milestone in Australian

                   recording history, it was one of the first serious attempts at putting out a complete album

                   of new songs plus a few covers by any Australian artist. It was a very impressive album

                   featuring 6 original tunes plus a few obscure covers but generally it’s a great “best of” album

                   with many tracks not available on 45. Becoming harder to find these days.

                  #  Bobby & Laurie- Hitchhiker…. An Extremely tough album that is far as I’m concerned,

                      hands down, the best Australian LP to be released in the 60’s. Both Bright and Allen

                      are in fine voice and backing from The Rondells is exemplary. Doesn’t contain one duff

                      track though if I were pressed to pick one I’d go for the title track. Many stand out tracks.

                                         Dean Mittelhausen         From The Vault..Vol.1  No.4. 1988

 

                    # Reviews Of The Last Record….Hitchhiker  Bobby and Laurie  $2.50

                        Bobby and Laurie were an important part of the development of the Australian scene.

                       This  Album was the product of their second “period” the first being that with GO.

                       The songs themselves aren’t dated, (Saved Jump Back) but the basicness

                        and emptiness of the backing is not a bad buy if you want to mark time.

                    # There was an inevitability factor in Bobby Bright and Laurie Allen’s grasp for stardom,

                             obvious to all. Nobody who possesses their maniacal single-mindedness can ever fail

                             to realise an ambition. But whilst fame seemed certain, no soul could have predicted

                             their pivotal position in Australian beat recording of the 60’s, nor, as shall become evident,

                             their far-reaching influence.

   #  Laurie Allen was a super casual fellow who floated through life on a

Cloud, nothing seemed to touch him. If you were interested in music

That was enough for him and you immediately had a special bond with

  Him. In fact I recall his motto at the time “Making music, not money”.

Dedication to Laurie by Marcus Herman of Crest Records

               Extract used by permission & taken from Greg Lynch’s  tribute to

Laurie Allen as featured in “Rock ‘n’ Roll News”.

Thanks Greg.
