Dean Parrish – Determination – Boom


Out of stock

Phil Anastasi was born in Little Italy, New York in 1942. In 1965 Dean signed to “Musicor” records, recording “Bricks, Broken Bottles And Sticks” which became a local radio hit and earned him a contract with Boom Records. “Tell Her” was released in June 1966, his only Billboard pop hit charting at No.97. Determination’ was next followed by the Mod favourite Skate’ before the year was out. A switch to Laurie saw the release of the Northern Soul anthem I’m On My Way’ in November of 1967, which sank without trace, and Dean bowed out as a solo artist.
Reverting to his birth name he took up work as a session musician with his friend Jimi Hendrix and when the session work started to dry up he became a wedding singer, a career move that led to a cameo appearance in an episode of The Sopranos! This disc has  some “gold paint” on the label, with some superficial wear to the vinyl and label, whilst retaining some gloss, conservatively graded in VG+ condition, worth checking the flip too
