Randy Cain, 63, singer in Delfonics
PHILADELPHIA - Randy Cain, a singer and founding member of the soul group the Delfonics, which had such hits as "La La Means I Love You," died April 9 at his home in Maple Shade, N.J. He was 63.
Mr. Cain's death was confirmed by investigator Rob O'Neal of the Burlington County medical examiner's office, who declined to release other details.
Mr. Cain and brothers William and Wilbert Hart formed the group while attending Philadelphia's Overbrook High in the 1960s. The group, one of the earliest to define the smooth, soulful "Philadelphia sound," won an R&B Grammy in 1970 for their song "Didn't I Blow Your Mind This Time."
Mr. Cain left the group in 1971 but returned for a later version of the group.
"I'm going to miss him. We grew up together since 1968," Wilbert Hart told the Philadelphia Daily News.
He said he last saw Mr. Cain about five months ago.
