The Skyliners

The Skyliners are an American doo-wop group from Pittsburgh. The original lineup was: Jimmy Beaumont (lead), Janet Vogel (soprano), Wally Lester (tenor), Jackie Taylor (bass voice, guitarist), Joe Verscharen (baritone).The Skyliners were best known for their 1959 hit, "Since I Don't Have You". They also hit the Top 40 with "This I Swear" and "Pennies from Heaven". Other classics include "It Happened Today" (1959), "Close Your Eyes" (1961) and "Comes Love" (1962). The original group dissolved in 1963, but re-united eleven years later (without Jackie Taylor), for what would become their last charted record, "Where Have They Gone?"

Skyliners : Greatest Hits

Something of a genre-bender, this all-white teenage group from Pittsburgh featured a female singer with a naturally true high range, mostly original material written by their equally talented lead singer Jimmy Beamont (in conjunction with their producer), and a sound that was equal parts Four Freshmen and fifties R & B. One of the first 'rock' groups of the era to record with full orchestra, songs such as the justifiably famous 'Since I Don't Have You,' 'This I Swear,' 'Lonely Way' (the latter a favorite of the Manhattan Transfer) are surprisingly mature and complex for voices so young. This CD culls material from their early releases on the Calico label, as well as a couple of cuts added for this album: 'Stardust' and 'Blossoms In The Snow.'

Songlist: Since I Don't Have You, This I Swear, I'll Be Seeing You, Stardust, If I Loved You, Warm, Blossoms In The Snow, Believe Me, Lonely Way, How Much, It Happened Today, Pennies From Heaven, Zing Went The Strings, Happy Time, One Night, One Night, Tomorrow, Lorraine From Spain, I Can Dream, Can't I, Tired Of Me, When I Fall In Love
