This song “Those Oldies But Goodies (Remind Me of You)” about nostalgic feelings about songs was written by Paul Politi and Nick Curinga. In 1961, it became a hit for Little Caesar and the Romans, going to #9 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and #28 on the R&B Chart.
Little Caesar and The Romans were a Los Angeles-based doo wop group. They had been through a number of iterations as The Cubans and also The Upfronts, as well as personnel and record labels. Little Caesar was David “Caesar” Johnson, originally from Chicago. He served in the U.S. Air Force, after which he moved to California. For this track, they were Johnson, Early Harris, Leroy Sanders, Johnny Simmons, and Carl Burnett. They would perform their act wearing togas, which the group did not care for, but they toured with Etta James, The Vibrations, and Jackie Wilson. They also appeared on American Bandstand. They disbanded in 1962 partly as the result of a dispute as to whether Johnson or Burnett was the real Little Caesar.
