b. 20 May 1937, New York City, New York, USA. Randazzo was an accomplished child accordion player. His singing career started with the Three Chuckles, whose other members were Tom Romano (guitar) and Russ Gilberto (bass). The group had small hits with Two Times I Love You (1955) and And The Angels Sing (1956). The group also appeared in Alan Freed's film ROCK ROCK ROCK, performing Cinnamon Sinner. A versatile singer who could move from R&B to rock ‘n’ roll to florid balladry, Randazzo went solo in 1957, recording Next Stop Paradise. Little Seranade was a minor hit a year later. He moved to ABC Records in 1960, when The Way Of A Clown reached the Top 50. He joined in the dance crazes of 1962 with Dance To The Locomotion, tried folk with a version of Cotton Fields and made an album of standards, Frank Sinatra-style, but his only subsequent hit was Big Wide World (1963). The following year Randazzo joined Don Costa's DCP company, concentrating on songwriting and production, notably for Little Anthony And The Imperials. Among the group's hits with which he was involved were I'm On The Outside Lookin' In, Goin' Out Of My Head (revived by the Lettermen in 1968) and Hurts So Bad, with which Linda Ronstadt had a 1980 hit. Randazzo briefly resumed his own recording career with Buddahin the late '60s. His later songwriting successes included Feels So Good To Be Loved So Bad, a 1977 hit for the Manhattans.
