The Rubinoos: The Rubinoos

Ken Barnes, Phonograph Record, May 1977

THE RUBINOOS, Beserkley Records' hot new quartet of Bay Area teenagers, lead off their debut album with a new version of Tommy James' 1967 classic pop hearthrob number, ‘I Think We're Alone Now’. The Rubinoos do Tommy's terrific tune justice; the band even adds a slight improvement with some Beach Boys-like falsetto on the fadeout.
