Bobby Vee gained fame as a teenager when he filled in for Buddy Holly after his death. He had two lower chart singles, 1959 and 1960, but by the summer of 1960 he was poised to have his break through hit.

“Devil Or Angel” was originally a rhythm & blues hit for the Clovers in 1956 when it reach number three of the BILLBOARD R&B Chart. Vee provided a very smooth vocal and moved to over to straight pop. Released during the summer, it became the first top ten single of his career, peaking at number six on the BILLOARD Hot 100.

His career is now past the fifty year mark but the the most successful part was 1059-1970, when he placed 38 singles on the Hot 100.
