Biography

Kathy Linden was an American pop singer from Moorestown Township, New Jersey.

Linden scored two hits on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 late in the 1950s. The first was “Billy”, a song originally written in 1911; it hit #7 in 1958. The second was “Goodbye Jimmy, Goodbye”, which rose to #11 in 1959. Both singles were released on Felsted Records and featured Joe Leahy’s backing orchestra. “Goodbye Jimmy Goodbye” incorporated elements of two previous tunes - the British music hall song “Two Lovely Black Eyes” and the country song “Goodbye Little Darling”. There were a few covers, the biggest of which was by Ruby Murray in the UK. At the time of her first hit single Kathy was a married woman in her 20s, but her record company wanted her to appear as a child due to her childish voice.
