by Administrator 20. April 2022 14:02

April is apparently the month of New York because we’ve got three 45s hailing from NYC that are absolutely on fire! This month’s roster includes Bobby Moore and the Formosts, Clyde McPhatter and Bobby Milano. Read until the end for an interesting snippet about one of our featured artists. 


Bobby Moore and the Formosts: Girl You Do Something to Me / It Was a Lie

Label: Red Bird 10-071. Released 1966.

Label Owner: George Goldner, Jerry Leiber, Mike Stoller. New York, NY. (1964-1967, 1983).

A Side: Girl You Do Something to Me

B Side: It Was A Lie


You won’t find much information about Bobby Moore and the Formosts while searching on the web, but that’s why we’ve brought you the only thing you need right here at Parker’s records - the 45 itself! This 45 has an upbeat track on side A and a slower ballad on side B. You have to assume it is more than pure coincidence “It Was A Lie” is on side B, as the tune is likely about a love that seemed so strong, but turned out differently. Check it out below.

Born in Buffalo, NY Bobby Milano’s real name was actually Charles J. Caci. Milano was a singer, producer, and actor during his career before passing of liver cancer in 2006. Although not incredibly famous, Milano had quite the entertainment career. He was signed by Capital Records, sold a number of top selling records, was friend with Frank Sinatra, and starred in a number of films. Unfortunately, in 1967 Milano was sentenced to prison for mob activity. You can read the full story here.
