Hello,  In 1959 Bobby Rydell became a teen idol when his first hit record,  KISSIN’ TIME  hit the US music charts.  The single on Cameo Records became a #11 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and remained on the chart for 17 weeks.  The flip side of the record another rock side,  YOU’LL NEVER TAME ME…a great song of its own, did not chart

During May of 1960 Bobby toured Australia with The Everly Brothers, Billy “Crash” Craddock, Marv Johnson, The Champs and The Crickets.  He recorded an Australian version of  KISSIN’ TIME  for the tour…the song became a big hit with the Australian public and was only released in Australia.  Bobby Rydell has been a favorite in Australia from that very first tour.  He continues to tour down under as often as his vigorous schedule allows.  He remains a huge draw where ever he performs.

  1. Thank you. I was beginning to despair of finding the very rare Australian version of Kissin’ Time, which I haven’t heard for years. Marvellous.
