RANDY & THE RAINBOWS: Remember (Vinyl-LP)

O.K. trivia freaks, try this one: What group has been recording great records since 1959 . . . had their first hit 4 years later . . . is still recording and performing great music today . . . and all of their members are younger than any of the Rolling Stones?

As you might suspect (since you're holding their latest album in your hands) the answer is Randy and the Rainbows. Pioneers. Survivors. And just possibly the future of rock ‘n’ roll. Dom Safuto (“Randy”) was 12 years old when he and his brother Frank, as members of the Dialtones, recorded “Till I Heard It From You” for the legendary George Goldner. Dom remembers sitting in the waiting room of the recording studio with groups he idolized (the Flamingos, Little Anthony and the Imperials) waiting for their precious time “at bat.” At 12.

George Goldner treated Dom halfway between a son and a budding star. Rumor has it he felt that Dom could be a “white Frankie Lymon." He let Dom hang around sessions . . . listen . . . and absorb the sounds and the feelings of that golden era.

“Till I Heard It From You” got enough airplay, and sold enough records, to allow for another recording session. But before anything else could be released, the lead singer, Rosalie (the Safuto’s Brooklyn friend), decided that show business was not for her, and suddenly the Dialtones were no more. Goldner shelved the next Dialtones release. Under normal circumstances the story would have ended right there.

However, our undaunted heroes, Dom and Frank, regrouped with three other Maspeth neighbors (including Mike Zero of the current group) and after several name changes, in May of 1963, Randy and the Rainbows were burning up the national charts.

The good news for everybody who knew and loved “Denise” is that Randy and the Rainbows is essentially the same group today as they were when they recorded that landmark hit . . . not just in personnel (Vinny Carella joined almost immediately after “Denise” . . . there have been no personnel additions since 1964!) but in their sound, their spirit, and their energy.

This, their first “mini-LP,” is a no- filler affair . . . with the title track another possible rock & roll landmark. In rock & roll, as in life, there really is no substitute for experience. Hear for yourself. Check out the latest from the all-time-great Randy and the Rainbows! Ambient Engineer: Rob Bengston Recorded at The Workshoppe, Queens, NY Mastered by Joe Brescio, The Master Cutting Room, Manhattan, NY. This album was cut directly from the original 30ips stereo master tape for maximum sonic purity.
