Bob Moore

He was a cofounder of Monument Records, he played on sides by Elvis, Bob Dylan, Jerry Lee Lewis, Moby Grape and Sammy Davis Jr. The bass you hear at the beginning of King Of The Road by Roger Miller is played by Bob Moore. But under his own name, he only had one hit. That’s the one-hit wonder for you

Bob Moore:

Mexico – An instrumental with a vaguely Latin flavour, Moore’s one and only hit reached the top 10 in the fall of 1961. Herb Alpert took the style and made an entire career out of it.
