2002 Millennium Review

by Gregory McIntosh

Park South actually takes a stab at covering a group who has little presence in the annals of pop music other than their one and only hit, "Denise," released in 1963. They take this opportunity to re-introduce Randy & the Rainbows via a compilation that opens with a dance/club remix of "Denise." Yikes. The original version is here as well, but it's tagged onto the end of the disc almost as an afterthought. The rest of the compilation is a mix of their recordings from the '60s, and recordings from their reunion in the early 2000s; it's sometimes nice, but 2002 Millennium is really nothing spectacular.
