Classic Rewind – Bobby Helms – ‘Fraulein’

One response to “Classic Rewind – Bobby Helms – ‘Fraulein’

    A great song but a performer whose career success was very up and down after the late 1950s . I’m guessing this performance is from the early 1970s, just before he started wearing the patch over his right eye (extreme light sensitivity, if I recall correctly) . Bobby had numerous health problems and died of emphysema in 1997 at the age of 63.

    Bobby was somewhere between county and rockabilly and he enjoyed three top ten pop hits (“My Special Angel” and twice with “Jingle Bell Rock”) plus sevral other pop chart entries

    We was a very good singer and performer who deserved more success than he had
