RRGTCB backs David Steinberg on his 1976 LP

Don Novello, a.k.a. Father Guido Sarducci, opened for us a few times. Roto co-wrote with Novello "Tears on the Dashboard". We recorded a demo with Don. David approved and we recorded it "for real" with Mr. Steinberg's plaintive lament over the high cost of gasoline (remember, this was 1975). "Some loves are like cars, they're born not to last"......etc.

The ROTO Horns on Peter Alsop's LP 1976

Solo artist Peter Alsop was RRGTCB's opening act for many Ice House performances. For his Flying Fish LP "Asleep At The Helm" Peter enlisted the section work of the "Roto Horns" for "sweetening" on 4 of his songs. Prominently featured on the title track, "Doin' It For You", "The Young Woman Disco" and "When You Ask Me First" we enjoyed the session and were very pleased with the results.
