Yes they did become Tavares. Sorry, I haven't got a copy either for sale or, very sadly, for my own amusement I've just cum. I found a copy in the US last year then I was out there with Shifty 9 months later and we were talking about this record. I know people who have had this years who bought it for "inside story" which i beleive was played out first. Their grandparents taught them traditional Cape Verde folk songs, while their older brother John schooled them on doo wop singing.

Their first album included their brother Victor, who sang lead on "Check it Out", but dropped out of the group shortly after.

The band the world knows as Tavares has been known by other names, but no matter what you call them, we are sure you will agree they were the voice of a generation. Known variously as Chubby and the Turnpikes, the Tavares Brothers or simply Tavares, this amazing array of talents has delighted audiences from the late s to the present day. From the very beginning, Tavares was very much a family affair. The Tavares were born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island, and the band remains popular throughout the New England region. That induction was a real honor for the past and present members of the band, but it is far from the only accolade these talented musicians have received during their long and storied careers.
