Vocalist. He was a founding member of the Rhythm and Blues music group The Delfonics. They are best known for the top ten hits "La- La- Means I Love You" (1968) and "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)" (1970). Born Herbert Randal Cain, III in Philadelphia, he formed the group along with brothers William and Wilbert Hart during his high school years at Overbrook High. They established a soulful-style of music and defined what became known as the "Philadelphia Sound", also heard in such groups as Harold Melvin and The Blue Notes and The Stylistics. Further top 40 hits followed with "Break Your Promise" (1968), "Ready Or Not Here I Come (Can't Hide From Love)" (1969) and "Trying To Make A Fool Of Me" (1970), before Cain's departure from the group in 1971. He would continue his career as a performer up until his death. (bio by: C.S.)
