" I Did It Again" was written in the early 1970s by Bobby Cutchins and his partner, John Edwards. It was written and placed in a collection of songs that they had written. They were just writing songs before seeking a relationship with a label.

In May, 1976, Bobby lost his father. It was a devastating loss to him and when he returned to Philadelphia from the funeral in North Carolina, John, in an attempt to get Bobby's mind off his loss, introduced Bobby to Al Ford, who owned Lasso Records, a small Independent label in South Philadelphia. The rest is history.

One night Bobby and John went to Mr. Ford's house. John accompanied Bobby with the piano on I Did It Again and You're My Kind Of Girl, two of the songs they had written together. Mr. Ford was instantly sold on his new find and agreed to let them have complete freedom to produce the session as they saw fit. It was also decided that two more songs would be written and that four songs would make up the original session.

Mr. Ford and John collaborated on "Leaving" and "Good Treatment" and plans were made for the session. Things were finally shaping up.

The MFSB Family was contracted for the orchestra along with Yvette and Angela Davis to sing the background voices. Quad Sound Studios in Nearby Pennsauken, New Jersey, where Gene Leone was the engineer, was booked and a session date in November, 1976 was set.

Rhythm tracks were recorded on one day, strings and horns were recorded on one day and lead and background vocals were recorded on the third day. In February, 1977, "I Did It Again" was released with "Good Treatment" on it's flip side. It was released in a few cities along the eastern coast of the United States, but it wasn't until it found it's way to The United Kingdom that it finally received the kind of welcome that this song and this artist deserved. From there it spread throughout Europe and to many neighboring countries. Bobby enjoys a massive following in Europe and can't wait to see his soon-to-be-released album on the market and on the radio so his many loyal fans can enjoy his latest effort.

Bill Holland, who owned the studio where "I Did It Again" was recorded, is now the President of The Soron Group, which includes, Soron Records, the label that Bobby Records for now. Everyone is excited and looking forward to the release of Bobby's latest effort that will be released in early 2008. There is much more to come. Stay tuned!
