Bobby Paris was a Puerto Rican American who did a version of the Dukays Night Owl.
Bobby can be seen re-doing his more famous tracks live on the DVD collection: The Strange World Of Northern Soul:
“here comes the night owl… sort of had links with Wheel goers (Twisted Wheel All-nighters; being night owls) and took up as an anthem at Wigan Casino, hence the Night Owl badges etc. Per-son-ally (1968).
Kev Roberts puts Night Owl by Bobby Paris at 54 on his all time Top 500 Northern Soul records and I Walked Away at 94. And another entry at 365 with Per-son-ally.
