Outstanding flawless condition - mint minus throughout.

This much loved Italian Bronx-bred R&B vocal group gathering's rarest 45 on the label, presented here in utterly flawless condition!

We lead with the original flipside of this 1959 flop, with Antonio "Nino" Aiello, Vinnie Drago, Tony Delesio, Rudy (Second Tenor) in fine form, particularly Vinnie Drago's bass vocal catching the limelight with his timeli;y intrusions as the "Nino's" lead vocal soars and swoops through the song. A seamless example of harmony vocalisation at it's very best. Holding notes whilst popping lyrics off each other like synchronised verbal-volleyball. This is exemplary Italian Mambo driven harmony. We love it!

The lead side missed out totally thru the stores, with low sales making this their rarest Recorte Records release. Again the vocal-group harmony is flawless, woven into a skipping arrangement that didn't catch the radio or the public's imagination. Although it had more commercial potential maybe. But that leaves a gem of a flipside to attract those collect those pass over jewels and marketing mistakes that have created so many great tunes to chase.

These boys from The Bronx were however deservedly destined for the big time; Less than two years later that hit a home run with "Those Oldies But Goodies *Remind Me Of You) for Madison Record in 1961
