I can’t pretend the name was instantly familiar but Bob Montgomery who has died age 77 wrote some wonderful songs including this cracker
Others? “Back in Baby’s Arms” by the lovely Patsy Cline and a few songs recorded by his mate Buddy Holly. The pair of them were a duo in the mid-50s until they played support to Elvis after which Buddy Holly took off in a solo search for rock & roll. So Bob Montgomery wrote songs for him including “Heartbeat”, “Wishing” and “Love’s Made a Fool of You”.
Good stuff huh?
