Welcome to Bobby Naughton.com

In 1969 vibraphonist Bobby Naughton started OTIC Records as a vehicle for the dissemination of his music. Since then it’s no secret that the record/CD business has gone through some dramatic and profound changes. Brick and mortar record stores have vanished; distributors are inundated with CDs but have fewer retail outlets available to market them. Today the listener has to venture into uncharted territory to even locate recorded music, regardless of the style or popularity. As a result many musicians have necessarily become the creators, caretakers and distributors of their recorded output. And the internet is a fundamental tool to facilitate this process. This website is an effort to make the music of Bobby Naughton easily available to the potential listener. Visitors are offered LPs, CDs, and MP3 downloads of older releases, unreleased materials, new works, scores and even ringtones. Welcome to the website.
