I had initially conceptualized this post as a means to reveal that both Black Shag and myself must be Ray Caviano's illegitimate children due to our shared reputations as scoundrel's. Now of course we draw the line long before ripping anyone off least of all Jimmy Ross. Leaving Jimmy stranded and broke in New York City only to be deported seems just a little extreme. Oddly enough the many negative comments about Caviano accrued on the last Beat Electric RFC post have now mysteriously disappeared leaving his scoundrel status somewhat dubious. Still it seems hard to deny, enough old schoolers in the know reached out to us and explained in detail what a crooked bastard this guy was.
That said, Caviano had a pretty good ear for talent. Here are a few key tracks from the partnership of RFC and Toronto based Quality Records. I now ask each of you to find it in your hearts to send A Number of Names a paypal donation or drop Monica Thornton a modest check in the mail as it seems clear Ray Caviano wasn't much into making good on his artists royalty payments.
