Richy C and the Casanovas

This one is a head-scratcher.  First off, the label says 1979, but it sounds like it was cut 20 years earlier.  Cover of the 1961 Gene Thomas hit "Sometimes."

Flip side is a standard Hispanic ballad ("A Medias De La Noche").

Was told this was a Pueblo-based group, on an Albuquerque label (Alta Vista 1148), but can't find anything on them, so I will throw this out there, and hope someone can offer up some info.  Thanks in advance.


  1. My father is Richy C he was born and raised in Pueblo who recorded the record I believe in 1979 in Albuquerque with in Albuquerque band The casanovas. My father is still alive and lives in Belmont he's a record collector was a DJ for over 40 years Four Weddings parties special events.

  2. Hey you! I am Larry and know your dad. I did a newer version of his song for him to sing. It's the same arrangement and I added horns. I re-did his arrangement CD for him about 25 years ago too. He knows me from life/bands and Mill rapprentice at the CF&I

  3. That is awesome thank you
