Bobby Goldsboro Career
Goldsboro is a pop and country singer-songwriter, guitarist, painter, and television producer whose solo career picked up steam with the top ten hits “See the Funny Little Clown” which reached No. 9 on the U.S. national charts in early 1964. The single sold over one million copies and was awarded a gold disc.
In 1966, Goldsboro recorded “It’s Too Late” with “Too Many People” on the B-side. Although he was not a prolific performer of dance music, both songs were huge hits on the Northern soul scene in Great Britain and were played extensively.
In 1968, he released his biggest hit “Honey”, a tearjerker about the death of a man’s lover. The song became the largest-selling record in the world in 1968.

It also became his first country hit. Goldboro’s song “Summer (the first time)”, a 1973 reminiscence about a 17-year-old boy’s first sexual experience with a 31-year-old woman, was a Top 25 hit in the U.S. and it reached number 9 in the UK.

In 1995, he created fifty-two episodes of The Swamp Critters of Lost Lagoon a children’s television series.
