1940 ('41?) Bobby Goldsboro is an American country and pop singer-songwriter. He had a string of hits from 1962 to 1982, including five releases that achieved sales of over one million copies. His biggest hit was 1968's "Honey", a maudlin tear-jerker about the death of a man's young wife. The song, written by Bobby Russell, was recorded in one take. It topped the U.S. chart for four weeks, reached Number 2 in the UK Singles Chart on two separate occasions (1968 and 1975), and was a #1 single in Australia. The single sold in excess of one million copies. "Summer (The First Time)", a 1973 reminiscence about losing one's virginity to an older woman, was a Top 20 hit in the U.S. and Britain. Using a powerful repeating piano riff, 12-string guitar, some organ playing, and a dramatic orchestral string arrangement, the song was suggestive enough to spark some controversy.
