45 White Doo Wop Acetate ... Bobby Caupin

45 rpm acetate of Bobby Caupin with the songs "Chapel Bells / My Little Girl" from 1962. Bobby was the replacement for Frank Mancuso the lead singer of the white group The Imaginations who joined the marines corp. 

As you can see on one side the singer's surname is "Caupain" and on the other "Caupin" I don't know which is correct. In some places it is said that these songs were recorded under the name of Bobby Caupin & The Ebonaires (the Imaginations new name), but as you can see this vinyl only has the singer's name printed on it without any group name appearing.

CD ... Delicates, Starlets & Angels - Evolution Of A Vocal Group

THE ANGELS, who would go on to become one of the iconic Girl Groups of the 1960s, had their roots in two earlier female vocal groups, THE DELICATES and THE STARLETS, both of whom were hugely popular in New York


This compilation traces their evolution, and includes everything recorded by all three groups between 1959-62 featuring, at different times, the lead voices of Peggy Santiglia, Linda Malzone, and Linda Jansen.


Included herein are their early hits, viz: The Delicates' 'Ronnie Is My Lover' and 'Black & White Thunderbird'; The Starlets' 'P.S. I Love You'; and The Angels' ''Til', 'Cry Baby Cry' and 'Everybody Loves A Lover'.



Also included, in its entirety, is The Angels' first LP "And The Angels Sing".


This is the first time that this body of work has been thus compiled, and a great many of these sides are well-nigh impossible to find elsewhere on CD.
