Bob B. Soxx And The Blue Jeans - Songs


Bob B. Soxx & The Blue Jeans were a short-lived male-female R&B/pop vocal trio that became famous during the early 1960s. They are best known for their remake of the cheery "Zip-A-Dee Doo-Dah" (1962), the Academy Award-winning song originally part of the soundtrack to the animated 1946 Disney movie, "Song Of The South."

Formed in Los Angeles by producer Phil Spector, the lineup consisted of Fanita James and lead vocalists Darlene Love and Bobby Sheen (May 17, 1941 - November 23, 2000). Sheen went by the stage name, Bob B. Soxx, and James and Love (The Blue Jeans) were former members of The Blossoms. Bob B. Soxx & The Blue Jeans recorded under Spector's Philles label.

Bob B. Soxx & The Blue Jeans debuted in late 1962 with "Zip-A-Dee Doo-Dah," which became a Top 10 hit on both the R&B and Pop/Rock charts. This smash, which was backed instrumentally by members of The Wrecking Crew, was followed soon after by "Why Do Lovers Break Each Other's Heart?" (1963), which made the Top 40. The group's final charting song came later that year with "Not Too Young To Get Married" (1963).
