The Babys deserved more in the late-70's and early-80's. They had two very contagious hits with Isn't It Time and Every Time I Think of You but were never ever to find the commercial success that they deserved.

After breaking up in late-1980, members went on to other projects. Singer John Waite had a major hit with Missing You, Jonathan Cain joined Journey, Tony Brock went to Rod Stewart's band while Wally Stocker played with Stewart, Air Supply and Humble Pie. Waite, Caine and Ricky Phillips ended up with Bad English in the late-80's.

With all of that success, it came as a surprise when two ex-Babys, Tony Brock and Wally Stocker, announced that they were auditioning people to join a new version of the band. They eventually brought on vocalist and bassist John Bisaha and guitarist Joey Sykes and premiered last summer at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills, CA.

On June 24, the new Babys will take the next step by releasing their new album, I'll Have Some of That on All-in-Time Records. Stocker said of the process "In recording this new album, we discussed the fact that the songs had to have the flavor of what we were known for."

He added "The whole premise is to keep The Babys alive and have a good time doing it."

Brock is very happy with the new lineup. "John Bisaha is an incredible singer. When we held auditions, we had singers lined up around the block to join the band and John was head and shoulders above the rest. Joey Sykes adds a whole new dimension to the band and has a style that works well in tandem with me."

The first single from the album is Not Ready to Say Goodbye.
