The Jive Bombers

One hit wonders extraordinaire.

The Jive Bombers:

Bad Boy – I had, at one time, an album that was like The Roots Of Rock And Roll or some such thing, which consisted of pre-rock and roll records, late 40s and early 50s R&B tracks that presaged 50s rock and roll, and this track was on it, which is chronologically odd, but stylistically telling. The song is about a guilty conscience it seems; he is bad because he is doing something about feeling bad. Ok. From the winter of 1957.
