Subject: Bobby Curtola

Written By: whistledog on 01/12/06 at 3:22 pm

Does anyone remember (or has anyone heard of) Bobby Curtola?

He was a Canadian born singer who became a Teen Idol in the 60's with many popular hits, the biggest of which was Fortune Teller in 1962.  Other notable hits he had were "Hand in Hand With You", "Hitchhiker", "Aladdin", "Indian Giver", "Three Rows Over", "I'll Never Be Alone Again" and "Don't You Sweetheart Me"

Since my folks had a few of his records, I used to listen to them a fair bit when I was a kid

I have heard his two US chart hits - "Fortuneteller" and "Aladdin." I liked these so much that, after hearing them, I went in search of a nice Curtola collection, but I could not find one for purchase. I'm glad you brought this topic up - I should try to keep him in mind next time I'm browsing!
