Captain Of Your Ship - Reparata & The Delrons

Reparata and The Delrons scored a moderately successful hit in europe with 1968's "Captain Of Your Ship", however the single never cracked the stateside charts in America. Silly Americans. The song's co-author, Kenny Young, claims that group's lack of superstar attractiveness was to blame for never reaching the recording heights that their talents so richly deserved. During a promotional reception in London they were introduced to John Lennon and Ringo Star so these New Yorkers obviously had potential, along with a superstar fanbase. Enjoy.

This video shows the Brooklyn trio singing "Captain Of Your Ship" in much better quality than the mp3 provided above. Notice the poster behind the announcer?

Not surprising that the Beatles admiration was mutual.

My Reparata discovery credit goes to Morriessy for listing "Shoes" under favorite songs to be cremated with.
