Es ist wieder Zeit für ein bißchen Rockabilly und Rocknroll und da ist Bob Roubian genau der Richtige. Wie bei den meisten guten Interpreten ist er natürlich kaum bekannt und daher wenig populär, trotzdem hat es bei uns sogar zwei Singles von ihm gegeben:
CAPITOL (Teldec)
06 56....CF 3373....Bob Roubian with Cliffie Stone and his Orchestra..Blue Suede Shoes/Candy Coated Kisses (CAPITOL 3373)
CAPITOL (Electrola)
11 57....45-EG 8741....Bob Roubian..Rocket To The Moon/It's Only A Paper Moon (PREP 101; danach E 20184)
09 58....E 20 184....Bob Roubian..Rocket To The Moon/It's Only A Paper Moon (PREP 101 dann in D: 45 EG 8741)

Ich besitze leider nur US-Pressungen von ihm, deutsche Pressungen sind daher herzlich willkommen, aber natürlich auch alle anderen Veröffentlichungen

Nach seiner Plattenkarriere stieg BOB ROUBIAN ins
Fischerei- und Restaurant-Business ein. Hier mal
ein Artikel darüber:

From popcorn to fish including a day at the beach
Novelty singer goes gold and cooks up another hit

By: Janet L. Hanson



The Popcorn Song

I'm too pooped to pop, just layin’ here fryin’ and I aint lyin’. The salt and butter is ready, and the fire is hot, but I just seem too pooped to pop.

~Bob Roubian


Bob Roubian’s covered startup costs of the Crab Cooker Restaurant with sales of “Too Pooped to Pop."
Like the star athlete who studies for his business degree and plans for an alternate career, songwriter Bob Roubian, transformed the proceeds from his 1954 hit song, Too Pooped to Pop, into a fish business in Newport Beach, CA.

With the burgeoning population in Southern California and Roubian’s commitment to serve the world’s best fish, his business has become a world-renowned restaurant and a travel destination for tourists. According to Steve Bolton, Roubian’s nephew and restaurant manager, The Crab Cooker provides an authentic and unique culinary experience to between 5,000 and 6,000 customers a week including world travelers, celebrities, businesspersons in three-piece suits, and locals in bikinis.

According to Steve, even the President once thought to eat at The Crab Cooker. Steve said when President Nixon was in office, the president’s staff called to make reservations.

“My uncle explained the restaurant has a first come first serve policy and does not take reservations. He said he would love to have them or they were welcome to buy something to go.”


Steve Bolton, restaurant manager, wears beach city attire and gold nugget memorabilia from his 10 years in Alaska.
Steve said the first come first serve policy holds true even for family and friends. “When I come to eat, I wait like everyone else. Even my grandmother graciously waited her turn to be seated to eat at the Crab Cooker.”

Countless magazine endorsements, and most importantly, word of mouth from happy Crab Cooker diners affirm year after year the popularity of the restaurant.

Dedication to quality and serving their customers are the two characteristics that Steve believes sets The Crab Cooker Restaurant apart. “If you like seafood, it is very difficult to beat the quality and prices our restaurant has to offer. Everything on the menu is unique."

When people come in and ask what he recommends for dinner, he tells them that every item is the best. “If it is your birthday, we like to bring you out an appetizer of smoked fish. We have no desserts.


Dory fisherman snagged the 14-foot white shark that now hangs from the ceiling of The Crab Cooker Restaurant in Newport Beach.
“Other than our Crab logo, many people identify us by the shark that hangs in our dining room."

Roubian designed the décor which includes a fire engine red exterior, café tables, and a 14-foot shark hanging from the ceiling … jaws gaping as if to say turn about is fair play.

According to a newspaper article displayed on a wall in the restaurant, dated January 29, 1960, two dory fisherman were 100-yards out from shore by the Newport Beach pier when they snagged, in their sea bass nets, the 1,000 pound white shark; the largest caught to date on the west coast.
Roubian’s commercial fisher was nearby and the crew removed the shark from the tangled nets. Roubian then set it on display in front of his restaurant; dorsal fin waving in mock greeting to the crowds of 20,000 onlookers who jammed the streets for three days.


Southern California beaches boast long piers for scenic opportunities to jog, walk, and fish on balmy sunny days.
Though not all of the fish served at the restaurant comes in as fresh as the white shark, the fish the restaurant serves is fresh because it is bought directly from the fisherman, and they have people who fish specifically for them.

Steve said in the past, the fishermen pulled right up on the beach behind the restuarant, but now they land at Dana Point. Items like albacore comes from northern Californian and Oregon where the fishermen unload their boats and send the fish down to the restaurant. He said if the fishermen use a good hook and line, clean and bleed the fish, then there is no problem with freezing. However, he added that tuna, albacore, swordfish, and cod all freeze well, but halibut is never frozen.

Roubian moved into the restaurant’s existing building in 1960, part of which was originally the Bank of Italy and later became the Bank of America. At that time, Newport was a place just to come for the weekend or the summer, there wasn’t much of a year-round population base. In those days, the restaurant only served meals on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, and throughout the rest of the week, it was a fish market.


Activities in the beach towns of Newport Beach and Balboa include boat rentals, para sailing, sport fishing, and an amusement park.
Steve explained that he started working at the restaurant when he was 13-years-old. Then, at 23, in 1975, Steve said he went to Alaska to try something different.

As he spoke, we were seated in the bustling and casual atmosphere of the restaurant dining room where music selected by Roubian played sweetly in the background. Steve wore traditional beach city attire; including a button-up silk shirt sporting a variety of colorful ocean fish and a Luminex watch. His wedding ring, cast from gold nuggets that his friends dredged from an Alaskan stream, hung on a gold chain around his neck. He’d acquired his wedding ring and another gold nugget ring while in Alaska.

“I went to work for the Alaska Railroad Company as a laborer,” he said. “My original plan was to go for three or four months, make a lot of money and then go to Europe.” He ended up marrying and stayed for 10 years.

He said he liked Alaska because the scenery was beautiful, though he did not care for the climate except for the summer when “It was a great place to be, the fishing was great, and I loved to fish. It fit my lifestyle at the time.”

After Steve’s first son was born in Alaska, he and his wife decided to come back to sunny southern California. He enjoyed the restaurant business and working for his uncle. “Orange County is a nice area in itself and very inviting. Family and climate are what brought me back,” said Steve. “It was a unique experience living in Alaska. It was similar to what I heard about how California was in the 1930s. Everyone was from somewhere else and looking to make a better life for themselves."

According to Steve, “the better life” included hopes for adventure, advancing economic and personal potential, and developing independence. “Adventure is the key; experiencing something new,” he explained. “If anything, my life proves you can go home. Though I would not trade my experiences up there for anything, I am happy with the moves that I have made.”

When coming to eat at the Crab Cooker in Newport Beach, Steve recommends seeing the beach. "We have some of the nicest beaches around here. People come to enjoy the beach and the weather. Hotels he recommends are the Marriot, Four Seasons, Hyatt Regency and the Hilton in nearby Huntington Beach. Don’t forget to pick up a copy of Roubian’s music cassette titled “Fish Songs.” Roubian still writes and entertains customers with his music.

The Crab Cooker Restaurant is located at 2200 Newport Boulevard in Newport Beach, CA

Hallo Forum, zu dem alten Krabbenkocher Bob Roubian habt ihr noch nichts, wie ich sehe. Also fang ich mal an. In den 60ern hat er eine Gourmet - Krabben - Küche betrieben, die so gut lief, das der damalige Präsident Nixon mal seine Leibwächter zum Einkauf dort schickte, an der wartenden Menschenschlange vorbei. Dies lies Roubian nicht durchgehen und verkündete laut, auch der Präsident habe in der Schlange zu warten. Den Laden gibt`s Heute noch . . . . . . Da Bob Roubian mit Damals fast 40 Jahren keine Chance auf dem Teeny - Markt hatte, ist schon verwunderlich, dass es überhaupt 3 sehr rockige deutsche Übernahmen zwischen 1955 und `57 gab. Die deutsche CAPITOL CF 3244 mit Cliffie Stone & Band, die folgende "Blue Suede Shoes" auf CAPITOL CF 3373 mit der Cliffie Stone Band . . . . . . . .

. . . . . . . und die Letzte, auf ELECTROLA. Wohl wegen geringem Plattenumsatz in den USA auf das CAPITOL - Sublabel PREP "abgeschoben", veröffentlichte die Electrola 1957 "It`s Only A Paper Moon" / "Rocket To The Moon". Dies ist mit Abstand seine beste Scheibe, bei "Paper Moon" drei fette Guitar Solo`s ! Für Neugierige: Youtube, Mr.Steamhammer 100 ! Let`s Rock !!!

Hallo Dr. M.!
Ich habe Bob Roubian bereits vorgestellt:
http://www.rocknroll-schallpla…php?t=4015
Die Trennung kann man aber ruhig so belassen, da bei deinem Beitrag die deutschen Pressungen gezeigt werden.
Ein Tipp noch: Bei den Interpreten- einschließlich der Buchstaben-Foren gibt es zwei Kategorien:
1. Engl.-sprachig & Instrum.
2. Nicht engl.-sprachig
Dein Bob Roubian war bei den nicht-englischsprachigen, aber ich habe das Thema bereits verschoben.
Bei der Vielzahl der Beiträge ist das manchmal nicht zu vermeiden

Dr. M.,
kurzer EINSPRUCH: Dein BOB ROUBIAN-Foto ist tatsächlich
der verdiente CLIFFIE STONE, mit dem tatsächlich Bob auch
musizierte. Siehe den zweiten Beitrag von Gerd: darin hatte
ich mal ein neueres Foto des Fischereiexperten abgelichtet.

Keep Smiling!
Dieter
