    Biography :

    Robert John (Robert John Pedrick, Jr) was born in Brooklyn, New York. Bobby Pedrick's recordings dented the Top 100 sporadically over four decades. Armed with a distinctively high tenor voice, he already scored his first hit at the ripe old age of twelve. His debut single, "White Bucks and Saddle Shoes", on the Bigtop label from New York City, entered the Billboard charts in November 1958 and peaked at # 74. In the UK it was released on London HLX 8740 and covered by the Vernons Girls on the Parlophone label (R 4497). The follow-up, "Pajama Party"/"Betty Blue Eyes" (Bigtop 3008), also sold reasonably well, but not enough to make the Hot 100. Bobby recorded without success on Shell in 1960 and Duel in 1962.

    In 1963, during his teen years Pedrick fronted a local New York group called Bobby & The Consoles . The group notched up a hit on the U.S. East Coast in the early 60s with ‘My Jelly Bean’, but the hit failed to bounce into the national charts. By 1965, he had changed his name as Robert John and signed with MGM records for two ill fated singles. In 1967, he signed a contract with Columbia records and released a string of singles with help from writing partner Mike Gately.
