  1. Bobby And I – Bobby And I (1969)
    Imperial Records LP12420





    Bobby And I were a male/female, pop/jazz duo (Bobby Burch and Ken Fishler) with a sound very similar to Free Design that features excellent vocals and musical accompaniment. Musicians include Rod Ellicott (bass), Dave Cohen (guitar), Ken Fishler (piano-harpsichord), and Jim Gordon (drums).

    The album features original tracks by Ken Fishler along with a few covers such as “Everyone’s Gone To The Moon”, “Hurt So Bad”, and Joni Mitchell’s “Michael From Mountains”. After releasing this album in 1969, Bobby And I recorded one more single for Imperial in 1970, “On Rose Walk” b/w “Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy” before fading from the music scene.

    1. THe "Bounced Checks' that Sergej listed is not
      a compilation. It's a live Troubadour gig by Waits from '75.
