  1. I never relized there were so many groups call The MAJESTICS when I recorded “So You Want To Rock” on Faro Records in 1959, Steve, Jimmy, Paul and ‘Memo’. ( from top to bottom on the lable picture)

    • What fun music we had in those days. Thanks for all your rocking tunes and the sense of humor. Nice idea for the Faro label pic.
