‘Rhythm Of The Rain’, 1963

The Cascades were a white R&B/vocal group that, despite never matching the success of their first hit, ‘Rhythm Of The Rain’, continued recording until the early 1970s. It reached No. 1 in many countries, but was anchored at the No. 2 spot in the US by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons’ ‘Walk Like A Man’. ‘Rhythm’’s songwriter, John Gummoe, continues as a jobbing musician today.
