Gary U.S. Bonds

Early in his career, Gary U.S. Bonds sang and had a heavy role in the arrangement of his first hit, “New Orleans”. In order to draw attention to the record, promotional copies were sent to radio stations in sleeves inscribed “Buy U.S. Bonds” - hence at age 19, Gary Anderson became Gary U.S. Bonds.

The follow up to “New Orleans” was the now legendary “party” record titled “Quarter to Three”, an instrumental, originally called “A Night With Daddy G”. Gary and Gene Barge (Daddy G) went on to write and arrange what became a number one hit that would eventually inspire Bruce Springsteen to say of Bonds, “There’s some guys out there, what they do is forever.”

Over the next three years, Bonds co-wrote and recorded hit after hit: “School is out.” “School is In,” “Dear Lady Twist,” “Twist, Twist Senora,” “Not Me” and many more, rising to a status so high that on a 1962 tour of Europe, he headlined above a group of relative newcomers called the Beatles.

A few years later, while still performing, Gary wrote songs for other artists. Some of those songs became hits. There was the number one Johnny Paycheck record, “Friend Don’t Take Her, She’s All I’ve Got,” that was nominated for a Grammy and earned Gary the nomination of Country Music Association’s “Songwriter of the Year.” The song also became number one on the R&B chart with Freddie North.

In 1980, a chance meeting with Gary became a solid friendship. Shortly after, a musical collaboration resulted in Bond’s “Dedication” and “On the Line” LP’s, with singles: “This Little Girl of Mine,” “Out of Work,” “Jole Blon” and “Daddy’s Come Home” produced by Springsteen and Van Zandt. Without a question, Gary U.S. Bonds was back on stage. His gritty, soulful and powerful vocals sound even better than before.

With the release of Gary U.S. Bonds’ next outstanding recordings, it is likely that his talent as a songwriter and producer will finally become a focal point of comments about him.

Gary U.S. Bonds is one of those rare artists who have both a rich history and an unlimited future.
