Bobby played lead guitar on "Rinky Dink" by Dave "Baby" Cortez; the riff is "Love is Strange" and
Bobby was playing that song (Love Is Strange) probably nightly at the Blue Morocco with Sylvia Robinson in the duo Bobby and Sylvia. Also interesting to note a blog that credits Bobby with singing on Bo Diddley's "Diddley Daddy"

Depending on the approach can be even with the background, not wanting to drift off into the shallows, much play: Even Udo Jürgens' "Glory of home" (Poso, Kierdorf). They are involved in the denunciation of not experienced charity. Two hours flew by outstanding brass and made with the two highlights, John Miles' "Music" and the addition of "Hallelujah" (Leonard Cohen), the more desire for a sequel.
Intensive Gefühle in musikalischen Botschaften an einem besonderen Ort zu vermitteln, das gelang mit dem Bobby Hebb-Hit „Sunny“ (Gesang: Kierdorf) genauso wie mit dem von Dean Martin bekannt gemachten „Sway“ (Immig) genauso wie mit einem Medley als besonderer Liebeserklärung an Paris als Stadt der Liebe. „Sway“, das Schwingen, und der Pariser Charme waren zu greifen, sprangen vom Orchester aufs Publikum über, wurden mit Begeisterung aufgenommen und mit viel Applaus zurückgegeben.

THE MICKEY AND SYLVIA HIT
'LOVE IS STRANGE' WHICH, OF COURSE, WAS PERFORMED LIVE ON STAGE WITH BOBBY AND SYLVIA
BOBBY HEBB AND SYLVIA ROBINSON
"Love is Strange" was a crossover hit by American rhythm and blues duet Mickey & Sylvia, which was released in late November 1956 by the Groove record label.
The song was based on a guitar riff by Jody Williams. The co-writers of the song are of some dispute. The song has also been recorded by Buddy Holly and Bo Diddley, among others. The guitar riff was also used by Dave "Baby" Cortez in his 1962 instrumental song "Rinky Dink" (lead guitarist, Bobby Hebb!)

Bobby Hebb sings on Bo Diddley's DIDDLEY DADDY on Chess Records
it was released two months after Diddley had paved the way for the man he used to sneak peeks at in the clubs only a few years before. Waters' version went to #5 that August, surpassed by another new Chess signee, Chuck Berry, who took his own Maybellene all the way to #1 (with a little help from Alan Freed) during the same time frame. Bo's follow-up single, Diddley Daddy (which featured Bobby Hebb as a young member of The Moonglows on background vocals), just missed the top ten that summer.
