Listening Booth – Johnny Cymbal, “Mr. Bass Man”

Here’s an oldie but a goodie – from 1963, it’s “Mr. Bass Man” by the late Johnny Cymbal.  I dare you to listen to this and not crack a smile.

Told you so.

The Bass Man in question is Ronnie Bright, an R&B/doo-wop singer who was in groups such as the Valentines, the Cadillacs, the Deep River Boys, and the Coasters.  But what I want to know is, is he the mystery man behind this vintage Ajax commercial?
