The Delphines

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tom Demalon
The Delphines consisted of former Go-Go's guitarist Kathy Valentine and lead singer Dominique Davalos. This 1996 release was the group's second, following an earlier EP. It's one of those rare albums that grabs the listener from the first second and never lets go.
