During the early 1960s, Bob became known to insiders as Nashville’s Best Kept Secret because of the creative input he was able to lend producers with whom he worked. Mr. Moore’s musical knowledge and practical experience were the key to many big hits. Nashville’s record business grew tremendously during this period. Many producers, musicians, and artists poured into Nashville. Bob Moore was busier than ever working with Elvis Presley, Roger Miller, Jim Reeves, the Statler Brothers, and Roy Orbison

"In one year, I did almost three hundred record sessions just for Mercury Records alone-- four (three-hour) dates a day, six or often seven days a week," he recalls.

In 1961 Mr. Moore, who was a partner in Monument Records, found time to record "Mexico", an instrumental for the label, which was a huge hit in Germany and sold over two million records worldwide.
