Johnny Eugene "Chubby" Stabile
1963 - Linda Please Wait / Rainy Night (Dewey 101)
1963 - Tears From An Angel (Dewey)
As a teen, Elliot Chiprut and his neighbor, Gene (Chubby) Stabile, had formed The Genells, and the duo wrote, produced and performed “Linda Please Wait” and “Rainy Night.“ They have their own orchestra and played in Night Clubs in New Jersey and New York. In 1962, The Genells signed a production deal with The Tokens, a group made famous by “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.“ Chiprut, who was 18 years old at the time of the deal, said he and Stabile had to wait a year to find out The Tokens would not be releasing “Linda Please Wait” and “Rainy Night.“ After that letdown, Chiprut came to know nearly every inch of New York City’s Brill Building, a historically prestigious location for those in the music business. The Record will finally be released by Dewey Records in 1963.
While reading a music magazine one day, Chiprut spotted a picture of childhood friend Jeffrey Katz, who was one half of Super K Productions.“I had this little tape recorder and I played “Simon Says” for him,” Chiprut said of a meeting with Katz. Things took off from there, and Chiprut was hired to make music for major TV netw ork productions including “Popeye Meets the Man Who Hated Laughter” and “The Last Day of the War,” which aired on ABC and CBS, respectively.
