RT's 1985 "Better Late Than Never" included a cover of CCRs "Fortunate Son"


That album was engineered to be his push to go national with a known cover song, but Bob Segar sort of stole that limelight with the same cover. I knew Robbin and a few of his associates, they all admit that was their last big shot at stardom. After than he immersed himself into the recording industry partnering with Carlos Chafin to form "In Your Ear" studios.

I would peg the RTB arc more from 1978 with Sweet Virginia Breeze (with Steve Bassett) and 1980's "Two B's Please" (Sweet Verginia Breeze version 2 and Candy Apply Red) through the mid-80's with his aforementioned Better Late Than Never album. He was still a big draw in the RVA area until his untimely passing in 2015. RIP my friend.
