    Bobby Darin & Connie Francis

    Bobby Darin wrote "My First Real Love", which led to their first encounter. Darin was "The Jaybirds", who were credited as background vocals. The choir effect was reached by Darin recording his part several times in different keys. However, the single failed to chart.


    The Same Week Bobby had signed with Decca Records who thought he had real star potential. Again, on his first singles, Bobby sang all the Vocals as the Jaybirds.
