    Biography :

    A group of neighborhood friends came together in the Red Hook-South Brooklyn section of Brooklyn in New York City to form the Dolphins in 1959. The Members are Douglas Rivera (Lead), Al Preta (First tenor), Joe Lentinello (Second Tenor), Noel Musccianesi (Baritone), Richie Cuffe (Bass).

    They made a connection with the Shad Label through their manager Paul Cappolino. he was the uncle of the famous guitar duo Santo & Johnny Farina who scored several slide guitar instrumental hits for the Canadian American Label.

    Bobby Shad put Mickey "Guitar" Baker in charge of the arrangements and production of their session, recorded at Capitol Studios in New York on 19 April 1960.  A 32 piece orchestra, that included 16 violins, was used for the songs "Tell Tale Kisses" and "I Found True Love", which were issued as Shad 5020 on 11 August 1960.
