|Reparata and the Delrons-Mid 1960's lineup Lorraine, Reparata, and Nanette.|
This vocal trio never had an American Top 40 hit, yet somehow continued to make records between 1964 and 1972. They only made two studio albums. One of the group's claim to fame is that they were among they were among the backing singers on the 1969 Rolling Stones hit, "Honky Tonk Women". They also were one of the opening acts on the Stones 1965 Tour of North America.
Reparata and the Delrons did have a Top 20 hit in the UK with a song called "Captain of Your Ship". The video of "Captain of Your Ship" above is from a German TV-show. It is the only archival television footage of them.
The girls performing" I'm Nobody's Baby Now" -a great song written by Jeff Barry.

Reparata and The Delrons -Look In My Diary
The song below (Look in My Diary) was actually not released till the 1997. Hard to believe, since it sounds like a hit to me. It's my favorite song right now. It was recorded around 1966 but used on any of their singles or albums.
The video above is actually a unofficial mash-up video compiled by Mr. Trubec. The first bit is from a Longchamp commercial featuring super model Coco Rocha. She is a Canadian born model of Irish-Welsh and Russian descent. I don't now where the other bits with the oriental girls and the redheads are taken from.
The original 2013 Longchamp commercial (above) featured the Bee Gees song-"You Should Be Dancing". The other model featured is another Canadian Liisa Winkler. Yes that's two"i"s.
The airport terminal where the video was filmed is unmistakably the former TWA terminal building at JFK International in NYC. Surprisingly, Eero Saarinan's classic space age terminal is no longer fully in use.
