Bio Excerpt from All Music:
Chances are that, despite their having come from Cleveland, OH -- and, thus, having a certain home field advantage -- the Outsiders will never be considered for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Bands with just two big hits (\\\"Time Won\\\'t Let Me,\\\" \\\"Respectable\\\") and a history mostly confined to AM radio in the \\\'60s don\\\'t seem to rate that kind of recognition. But if any two-hit, dance-oriented band from the \\\'60s ever deserved a crack at being voted in, the Outsiders do, simply based on the quality of their work over three years and four albums. The Outsiders started life as the Starfires, a hard-working popular local band in Cleveland founded by guitarist/singer Tom King in 1958. By 1965, the group had decided to add more vocals to its repertory, adding lead singer Sonny Geraci. Tom King and his brother-in-law, Chet Kelley, co-authored a song called \\\"Time Won\\\'t Let Me,\\\" and King turned the new number into a rock & roll tour de force. Recording it on their own, the band (under King\\\'s direction) melded the group\\\'s core sound -- augmented by the presence of Al Austin on lead guitar -- to brass and horn sections, in what was a fairly complex dual-layer arrangement. The group was signed by Capitol Records on the strength of the recording, but the label insisted that the band get a new name. King had been forced to abandon Pama Records, the label for which the Starfires had cut a dozen sides and was owned by his uncle, who accused his nephew of being an \\\"outsider\\\" to the family.
The name, the Outsiders, fit the new band and the times perfectly, and \\\"Time Won\\\'t Let Me\\\" was issued in January of 1966, rising to number five on the national charts soon after. ...
... in 1991, Capitol Records finally gave the group their long overdue recognition by adding them to its Capitol Collectors Series with a very good 25-song compilation.
