I receive this Email from Chick Carlton...

First of all Delbert Frankin is not a member of the Atlantics, he's the sax player for the Mixtures band, who recorded "Stomping at the Rainbow" and Gaynel Hodge use to sang with the Turks, and wrote Earth Angel and later became a famous arranger, he's about 74 by now.
The Atlantics: Were Barry White, Jimmie, Theo and Chick Carlton who also sang and wrote So You Want To Rock with the Majestics. Chick Carlton wrote and sang the lead on Strange World and Barry sang the background. Barry sang lead on HOME ON THE RANGE just before he left Faro to be a solo artist.
