Reparata & the Delrons

Known in the UK for the 1968 hit Captain of Your Ship, but never really big in their native US, Reparata & the Delrons were a surprisingly long-lived girl group, forming in the early 60s with the major part of their career coming to an end around a decade later.

They leave behind a notable selection of music ranging from the bittersweet teenage ballads of the early years, through more upbeat northern soul sounds, to some more quirky and stylised arrangements towards the end of their career.

The six tracks on this radio show aim to give a taste of what the group were about, so listen and enjoy!
