Odd trivia fact about Steve Alaimo-- he has the most Billboard Hot 100 singles (9) without ever reaching the Top 40. His highest-charting song peaked at #46.

Thanks John. I really enjoyed the Redcoats tracks.

Steve Alaimo played a guitar playing race car driver in the movie "Wild rebels". This film was on Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Steve Alaimo had a pretty big hit with Arthur Alexander's "Every Day I Have To Cry Some", recorded on Chess and ABC (I Believe) and was an owner and operator of T.K Records, most notoriously home of KC & The Sunshine Band ["Get Down Tonight', "Shake Your Booty',etc], Anita Bell [Ring My Bell}, The Stylistics [disco version of 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight'] and even James Brown [Rapp Payback].

I have lived in Rochester area since 1958 and worked in three used record stores of note, collected almost all of those years and though I have seen Steve Alaimo & The Redcoats 45s I have never seen the LP. A Truly rare find even in its own hometown


I have been a REDCOATS fan since the mid 50's when they played Club86 in Geneva, N.Y. This past August I traveled to Miami to see Steve perform at a benefit concert. (GEEZERPALOOZA)
as Steve and I were talking about the great turnout. (Over 3,000)To make a long story short...we decided that Steve and the 2 remaining REDCOATS should do one last show at Club 86 in Geneva. After a ton of phone calls and emails it is all set for April 11th. Admission will be $40 and includes a full sit down dinner and 2 other groups for dancing! The food at Club 86 is first class and the party room is just plain gorgeous! Check it out.

Steve Alaimo also has a writing credit for the Allman brother's hit "Melissa".
