Who sang lead vocals on these Romantics songs?
Feb 17th, 2005 at 2:47pm
 
The lead vocals on the big hits are easy:  Jimmy Marinos sang "What I Like About You", and Wally Palmar took the lead vocals on "Talking In Your Sleep" and "One In A Million."  But what about the following?

"When I Look In Your Eyes"

"Shake A Tail Feather"

"Rock You Up"

"Open Up Your Door"

"A Night Like This"

The show-closing cover of "Little Latin Lupe Lu" on the KING BISCUIT FLOWER HOUR show in San Antonio?

Did Mike Skill, Rich Cole, or Coz Canler ever sing lead vocals on any Romantics recordings?

Oldfriend is a real expert on this, but I think Wally sang lead on all of those except "Rock You Up", which was Jimmy.  I know Jimmy also sang "Got Me Where You Want Me" on In Heat.  Coz never sang lead.  Mike sang lead on "I Need You" from the new album--I think that was his first lead vocal.  Rich sang on quite a few songs, most notably on "No One Like You" from Strictly Personal.  Can anyone confirm this?

Additionally ... Rich sang lead on several songs: "Till I See You Again" from the S/T first album; "No One Like You" and "Can't Stand Losing You" from Strictly Personal; and of course "Let's Swing" from the early Bomp sessions. Mike lead on the recent "New Kinda Pain" and the unreleased "No Responsibilities" (we know this thanks to Oldfriend!). In addition, that was Wally taking over on "Little Latin Lupe Lu" in the live shows. To my knowledge, Coz has never sung lead vocals on a Romantics song.

Another interesting tidbit.  Jimmy sang lead on the In Heat album version of Love Me To The Max, but Wally sang lead on the live version during the In Heat our.

Actually Brew, Wally sings lead on "I Need You".

Yeah, you're right.  I got that mixed up with "New Kinda Pain".  Thanks for pointing that out.

Just a comment about Rich singing. In the early days "Till I see you again" was quite a staple. A very enjoyable change of pace in the National Breakout and earlier tours.

And...

IMO underrated Romantics tunes over the years...

You are all very informed Romantics fans!

However...Mike Skill was the lead vocalist on "Let's Swing," not Rich Cole. Rich was a member of the band from 1977-82.
