Post 646 - Gino Cunico - Gino Cunico LP

Gino Cunico born in Sydney in 1949 and at the age of 20 goes to seek fortune in the USA. Along with the guitarist of  The Executives , Ray Burton  (also co-author of I Am Woman by Helen Reddy) in 1972 they release “Strive, Seek, Find” (post #303), folk & country-rock LP as Burton & Cunico, produced by Artie Ripp, co-founder of Kama Sutra. In 1974 Clive Davis forms Arista Records with artists such as Barry Manilow, Bay City Rollers, Eric Carmen, Melissa Manchester, Gino releases his self-titled album for the label “Gino Cunico” (AL 4117) produced by Vini Poncia.

Gino released another album, also called Gino Cunico in 1974. It also contains She's Sweet, She's Somebody but the other 9 tracks are different. I have managed to track down 7 of those tracks but, I am still looking for Hollywood Boulevard and Younger Girl. Does anyone have those tracks or that album?

Gino was a young TV star on Bandstand, in 1967 he had a group called James Elder, with Tony Bolton, Jim Kelly and Paul Wheeler - they evolved in the Gino Affair, Gino left to join the Executives, Kerrie Biddell came on board and they became the Affair
