I don't expect you to write Bob's name on a wall when you hear this album, like the young lady on the cover has done, but I'm sure it will excite you as much as it did me.
Bob Moore, Nashville's own "boss" bass man, is what we call in the trade a musician's musician. He has played on more hit sessions than almost anybody anywhere. In 1961 Bob recorded a Boudleaux Bryant tune, "Mexico." This was Bob's first big hit, and it set a slow but definite trend towards the old Mexican Mariachi trumpet sound that is now so popular.
"Viva Bob Moore" gets off to a good start with "Parade of the Matadors," a Bob Moore composition. Next, "Amigo #1," another exciting original from the pen of Mr. Bryant.
Other tunes include "Acapulco," by Bob, the Everly Brothers' "Poor Jenny," also written by Boudleaux Bryant. It contains two Don Gibson hits, "I Can't Stop Loving You" and "Oh, Lonesome Me," Roy Orbison's "Only The Lonely," and the now classic "Tennessee Waltz," by Pee Wee King and Redd Stewart. Each and every tune would be a worthy single record in its own right.
"Viva Bob Moore" is exciting and vibrant, with the real flavor of old Mexico. This album will probably have an honored place in your collection of favorites just as it does in mine. That's why I say, "Viva Bob Moore."
