BIOGRAPHY
       
      Bobby Bloom
         
       
            New York-based Bloom began his career  
            during the '60s as one of several backroom entrepreneurs, 
            including Anders And Poncia, Artie Ripp and Levine/Reisnick, 
            central to the Kama Sutra/Buddah group of labels. He also made 
            several solo recordings, including Love Don't Let Me Down and  
            Count On Me, and later formed a partnership with composer/producer 
            Jeff Barry. Together, they contributed material for the latter-day Mon- 
            kees, notably Ticket On A Ferry Ride and You're So Good To Me.  
            Bloom's singing career blossomed with the effervescent Montego  
            Bay which reached the US Top 10 and UK Top 3 in 1970. Its adept  
            combination of bubblegum, calypso and rock was maintained on  
            Heavy Makes You Happy and THE BOBBY BLOOM ALBUM, which 
            Barry produced. However, despite this seeming ascendancy, a  
            troubled Bloom was killed in an accidental shooting in 1971 (sic).
