Picture of Bobby Charles


DVD Video: The Life and Music of Bobby Charles (DVD, one hour, 2 minutes), a video presentation on the life and music of Abbeville's premier songwriter, composer of "See You Later, Alligator," "Walking to New Orleans," "I Don't Know Why I Love You But I Do," and more than 150 other popular songs. The video consists of Bobby's personal history, interviews with Bobby and with others who knew him well, his many honors and awards, and samples of many of his most popular songs sung by Bobby himself accompanied by well-known musicians. This video was created by Gary Theall for the Vermilion Historical Society and is narrated by Dave Pierce. When posted on the VHS website, it proved so popular that the demand overwhelmed the capacity of the website, so it is no longer being offered for viewing online but is now being offered as a DVD.
