Editorial Reviews

Five years before the Beach Boys, this Bronx doo-wop group landed on the charts (#7 R&B, #13 pop) with Barbara-Ann in 1961. They scored another big hit a couple months later with Runaround , and this reissue of their original 1961 LP has those plus their velvety-smooth versions of Summertime; Sunday Kind of Love; Autumn Leaves , and more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Goldner Product September 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD
The Crows, Wrens, Five Budds, Valentines, Pretenders, Heartbeats, Rainbows, Channels, Lewis Lymon & The Teenchords, and The Regents all had three things in common. They hailed from the metro New York City area, they all worked for one of George Goldner's labels, and they had few - and in some cases no - hit singles.

However, unlike most of the others who were literally hauled off the street corners to record for Goldner, The Regents [lead Guy Villari, Tony "Hot Rod" Gravagna, Don Jacabucci, Sal Cuomo, and Chuck Fassert] began life as The Desires in 1958, when they first cut Barabara-Ann [named for Fassert's sister] as a demo.

In 1961, when the tiny Cousins label released Barbara-Ann under their new name, The Regents, the group had already broken up. Goldner, seeing it get some fairly decent airplay locally, took over distribution with his Gee label, and by June it had peaked at # 7 R&B and # 13 Billboard Pop Hot 100 nationally b/w I'm So Lonely. Five years later The Beach Boys, with Dean Torrence of Jan & Dean fame on lead vocal, had a # 2 hit with it.

Goldner quickly released two more of their earlier cuts that summer, and in August, Runaround [NOT the same song as the one by The Three Chuckles in 1954 and later The Feetwoods], made it to # 28 Hot 100/# 30 R&B b/w Laura My Darling [the last track in this set].

It isn't clear if Goldner tried a single again with some of the other cuts, or tried to get the group back together, but in any event that was it insofar as hits were concerned. Like the others mentioned above, The Regents had an unremarkable sound. Certainly nothing like the more successful Goldner groups, such as The Chantels. Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers, and Cleftones.

In this instance Collectables does us completists a favour by including both hits and their B-sides.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Regents December 15, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
CD of The Regents is a very enjoyable trip down memory lane. If you enjoy the
wonderful music of the 1950's/early 1960's you will find this CD to be just what
you want.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic 1950's Sound March 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD
A great album for any one who wants to here those

1950's "Rock N Roll" sounds. This CD has every thing from

"Doo-Wop" to the jumping jitterbug of "Barbara Ann" with it's heavy sax. Most people only know the Beach Boy's version of this song, recorded some 10 yrs. later (which pales in comparison to The Regents). In my opinion this CD is a must have for someone

looking to experience the 50's

I ordered it for someone named Barbara Ann, and she loved it! She had an original 45, but it cracked; so she wanted this.
