THE PAPERHANGERS - a long lost Capitol group

I found this small picture of The Paperhangers in an edition of KRLA Beat magazine.

I was curious because I'd never heard of them before and I'm almost certain the proposed 1967 Capitol release 'Guess What I Can See'/'Time Will Tell' never saw the light of day.

I spent some time on the 'case' and found out that Brent Maglia released a solo album on Fantasy Records in 1977 called 'Down At The Hard Rock Cafe'. It seems that Vito Giovannelli also played on this album.

A Brent Maglia song titled 'We Can't Let Go Of Love' was recorded by the walrus of love a.k.a. Barry White.


  1. Intriguing. They sound so cool. Let us know if you find out anything else. Thanks too for the Cindermen lowdown.


  2. Brent is still recording. Lives in Granada Hills and has a law degree.
    Vito owns a restaurant in Granada Hills, Casa de Pizza,
    Pete living in Thousand Oaks
    Ron is married and working a regular job

  3. Thanks for your input. I wonder what the recordings sounded like?

  4. thats my dad Vito there.....i wish i could hear this recording....i know he would love to hear it again also....thanks for the pic...
