(Delfonic) Randy Cain 1945--2009

Was sad to read that Randy Cain, a founding member of the suave and soulful Delfonics, passed away on Thursday in Maple Shade, NJ. As reader Bob Elwood reminded me, the Delfonics "La La Means I Love You" and their Grammy-winning "Didn't I Blow Your Mind This Time" were nicely used by Quentin Tarantino in "Jackie Brown" to pungently underscore the developing relationship between Pam Grier and Robert Forster. Cain met brother Delfonics William and Wilbert Hart at Overbrook High, long an incubator of local talent.

The Delfonics in the late 1960s. I believe that Randy Cain is on the far right.
