Carl Dobkins, Jr.

Carl Dobkins, Jr. This guy had 4 hit records, 2 big, and 2 not so big. They all came out in 1959 and 1960. Wikipedia says that he was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame but it doesn’t say why, and there is no obvious reason.

I got these 2 singles off of singles.

My Heart Is An Open Book – On the surface it’s a straightforward love song, but there’s tension here. “Don’t believe all those lies” says Carl, as he protests his honesty and openness. From the summer of 1959.
Lucky Devil – The religious imagery of heaven and hell, the devil and the angel, all shrunk down into an innocent love song. From the winter of 1960.
