Searching For My Love (Bobby Moore & the Rhythm Aces)

9 AUGUST 1966


The World Cup-winning England football captain wasn't the only Bobby Moore having a good summer in 1966, as 'Searching For My Love' by Bobby Moore & the Rhythm Aces went to #27 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart during this month. It also reached #7 on the R&B chart, selling over a million copies along the way.

This song - recorded at the FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and picked up by the Checker label - has a very definite Caribbean lilt to it. It was their first record, and their biggest hit. A follow-up single 'Try My Love Again' barely cracked the Top 100.
