Rubber Ball 45 by Bobby Vee

Bobby Vee first achieved fame when he replaced Buddy Holly at some concert dates after his death in a plane crash. He would go on to place 38 singles on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart, 1959-1970, including five that would reach the top ten.

“Rubber Ball” was written by Gene Pitney who would go on to a Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame career as a singer. It was a simple but catchy song that was typical of the early 1960s pre-Beatles era. It would become a big hit reaching number six.

The song made Vee an international star as it reached number four in England and number one in Australia. Vee continues to perfom down to the present day.
