'Just Like Romeo and Juliet' by The Reflections
This hand-clap-laden ditty from the Detroit "blue-eyed soul"/doo-wop peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard chart. The Reflections are still an active touring group, anchored by original members Tony Micale and John Dean.
During The British Invasion of The Sixties few American groups were successful in their attempts to land a record at the top of the national charts. The Reflections beat the odds with a string of highly acclaimed, top selling hits. Their first hit, "Just Like Romeo & Juliet" was a multi-million seller, and in quick succession The Reflections continued to dominate the charts with "Shabby Little Hut", "Poor Man's Son" and "Like Columbus Did". The Reflections achieved success purely on the strength of their well-crafted harmonies and cool professionalism. It's no wonder that four decades later.
The Reflections are still heralded as one of the finest vocal groups of The Sixties Pop and Doo-Wop Music Era. They are still performing today to sold out shows and standing ovations throughout The U.S.A. and Canada. The Reflections' name is proudly displayed on the wall of The Cleveland Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame.
