La Bamba Nightclub
April 21, 1967
Brother of Unit 4 + 2's Tommy Moeller, singer Corby Wells’ real name was Billy Moeller. As Whistling Jack Smith, he was a one hit wonder with the recording of, "I Was Kaiser Wilhelm’s Batman" Originally titled "Too Much Birdseed," the song had only one spoken word and a lot of whistling. The spoken word was,"Hey," on the 45 and "Oy," on the LP.
Backstage at the La Bamba, Corby said, "Please don’t take a picture with me whistling. I look like I’m blowing people air kisses.”
Hand printed by the photographer from his original 120 negative.
