The Replicas - I Was Born to Cry 7'' (1983)

If you ever see this record for sale I can pretty much guarantee you that the seller will say it's a ska record.

It's not.

Imagine a Dion and The Belmonts cover band in the early 80s that feels like they have to incorporate a sort of Two Tone sound without going all the way.
That's exactly what this record offers. Both songs are Dion covers.

Now, I am a doo-wop fan and I love Dion and the Belmonts, so this record was right up my alley. If you are unfamiliar with the original songs I have included them in this download.

Ain't that swell, Daddy-O?

A - (I Was) Born to Cry

B - Lovers Who Wander
