You certainly can't call "Ooby Dooby" Roy's worst record. Not in the opinions of several others (CCR, who remade it, for example).
After all the lyrics were borrowed quite liberally for "Hippy Hippy Shake" originally done by Chan Romero (1959) and remade in the U.K. by both The Beatles (1963) and The Swinging Blue Jeans (the U.S. hit-1964). Some online have called it a blatant ripoff.
