Buddy Love

Cleveland, 1964

Buddy Love is a recording psuedonym for Barry Lee. As Buddy, he recorded one 45, a uptempo version of "Heartbreak Hotel" that obviously has the backing of Richie and the Fortunes. In fact, it sounds like it was recorded at the same session as the first Barry Lee 45 and likely released as Buddy Love to avoid conflict with Barry's United Artists (Veep) contract.
