On May 19, 1965, Buddy Fo was ready to record again.
The leader of the Invitations, the group that exploded into popularity with their 4-part harmony vocals in 1958 had now created a follow up band.
Originally called Buddy Fo & the Invitations, the name was quickly changed to Buddy Fo & his Group.
Buddy contributed lead vocals and congos, Sonny Kamaka played guitar and made the arrangements, while Johnny Costello played bass – all remnants of the Invitations group.
LeRoy Melandre was added on piano, and Pete Empenyo played the timbales.
This entire recording was made in one day!
In this program, 50+ years later, we’ll share this memorable music.
