thorough over at Randycentral! The former archivist also weighed in
on this with the current archivist, who emailed me:
Val MAY have done some scratch vocals for Lenny (because he was
doing a Brummels record at the time) - but nothing has been
confirmed. Valentino has been apparantly saying this for years, but
Lenny and Randy have not.
He believes there IS a good chance Val did "guide vocals" for the
orchestra, but nothing exists. There is no proof ... he believes
Valentino probably did a little something.
Chances are better that Randy did the scratch vocals himself, though
he certainly did from "12 Songs" on...
