"Crazy Eyes For You"

Bobby Hamilton.

Little is known about Bobby Hamilton, aside from his being born Robert Caristo, October 5, 1938, in Locust Valley, Long Island, New York. “Crazy Eyes For You” – a rock-a-ballad, a ladies choice, what was called “a drag,” was possibly his first 45 and the second release for the Apt label. Follow-ups “Oh Yeah!” & "Uh Huh, Baby”, flopped.

In the early ’60s, Hamilton worked with a singing mailman named Freddy Gorman, formerly of the Voice Masters and later of the Originals. Together the two did manage to create “(Just Like) Romeo and Juliet” (#6, 1964), which would become a one hit wonder for the Reflections.
