The Bobby Fuller Four - 1965 - KRLA King Of The Wheels

Robert Gaston "Bobby" Fuller was an American rock singer, songwriter, and guitar player best known for his singles "I Fought the Law" and "Love's Made a Fool of You," recorded with his mid-1960s group, the Bobby Fuller Four. Born in Baytown, Texas, Fuller spent most of his youth in El Paso, Texas. He idolized fellow West Texan Buddy Holly, and pursued his own music career as a vocalist and guitarist. During the early 1960s, he played in clubs and bars, and recorded on independent record labels in Texas, with a constantly changing line-up. The only constant band members were Fuller and his younger brother, Randy Fuller on bass. Most of these independent releases (except two songs recorded at the studio of Norman Petty in Clovis), and an excursion to Yucca Records, also in New Mexico, were recorded in the Fullers' own home studio, with Fuller acting as the producer. He even built a primitive echo chamber in the back yard. The quality of the recordings, using a couple of microphones and a mixing board purchased from a local radio station, was so impressive that he offered the use of his 'studio' to local acts for free so he could hone his production skills. Fuller moved to Los Angeles in 1964 with his band, and was signed to Mustang Records by producer Bob Keane, who was noted for discovering Ritchie Valens and producing many surf music groups. By this time, the group consisted of Fuller and his brother Randy on vocals/guitar and bass respectively, Jim Reese on guitar and DeWayne Quirico (later replaced by Dalton Powell) on drums. KRLA King Of The Wheels from 1965 is the debut album for Mustang Records. In 1966, Fuller was found dead in an automobile parked outside his Hollywood apartment.
