Bluegrass Student Union   : Legacy : 00  3 CDs :

Bluegrass Student Union : Legacy

This three-CD collection by the Bluegrass Student Union, with its stellar harmonies and faultless execution, is a must-have for any fan of barbershop and will earn many new devotees. BSU, a celebrated quartet formed in 1974 and winners of the 1978 SPEBSQSA Championship, has produced a treasure. A retrospective of their entire career, the collection includes barbershop favorites such as "Coney Island Baby" and "How Ya Gonna Keep 'em Down on the Farm." the songs from Broadway's "The Music Man" that comprised their third recording, Gershwin classics such as "Our Love is Here to Stay" and "I've Got a Crush on You," and so much more! In addition, BSU has provided extensive liner notes that explain the group history and philosophy, and reveal the musical intelligence and knowledge that is evident in their work. Another bonus is the superior quality of the recording itself, which adds to the enjoyment. Highly recommended.

The Gas House Gang : Face the Music : 00  1 CD

The Gas House Gang : Face the Music    Out of Print

It isn't just perfect vowel matching or ringing chords that set these Champions apart. They pick joyous arrangements which make for fascinating listening and always seem to have some completely unusual element added into their non competition repertoire. For example, when David Wright arranged Muskrat Ramble for The Gang he came back with the lyric score with some sections written for a Dixieland band. The Gas House Gang ran with it, imitating a trumpet, a trombone, a clarinet and an upright bass, with some percussion thrown in. You must hear the wonderful arrangement of "Above My Head, I Hear Music In The Air" for it moves the spirit just as much as the Southern Sons' version does. We haven't time to describe each of the fourteen tunes on this recording but you should hear them.

Songlist: Strike Up the Band Medley, Wedding Bells, Brother, Can You Spare a Dime, Muskrat Ramble, Where the Southern Roses Grow, Above My Head, I Hear Music In The Air, Erie Canal, All Aboard For Dixie Land, Don't Be A Baby, Baby, This Is Some Lucky Day, Old Hymns Medley, Alleluia

Bluegrass Student Union   : Commencement : DVD

Bluegrass Student Union : Commencement

1978 International Barbershop Harmony Society Quartet Champs BSU have had a legendary career spanning more than 3 decades, 100 recorded songs and 1000 live performances. "Commencement" is a remarkable gift to their fans and to all fans of Barbershop, combining a dvd that follows the college analogy with a "Digital Video Disc Yearbook" in four Chapters, Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors." These feature clips of some of the group's influences, which they call "hero quartets:" the Suntones, the Citations and many others, with the groups' commentary on what made them want to sing along with and learn from these quartets. A favorite from Chapter 1's 14 clips would be "The Old Songs Medley," from Chapter 2's 6 clips, "Porgy and Bess Overture," from Chapter 3's 20 clips, "Mardi Gras Medley," and from Chapter 4's 9 clips, "The Bluegrass Gospel Medley." Then we come to an audio CD of 8 tunes, a few favorites are "Back in Business," "It's Sand, Man," "I Can't Run Away From You," "Without A Song" and "It's a Wonderful Life." This audio disc is excellent, the frosting, if you will, on the cake that is the dvd. "Freshmen," for instance, has over 41 minutes of wonderful live video clips, "Sophomore" has over 29 minutes, "Junior" over 44 minutes and "Senior" 38 minutes-of wonderful vintage costumes and great music, that shows the evolution of a group known as the "valedictorian" of the Barbershop Harmony Society's "class of 1978." Trust us, there's more incredible history and music here than we can begin to describe to you. If you love Barbershop or vocal harmony in general, just treat yourself to Bluegrass Student Union's lifetime achievement: "Commencement!"

Songlist: Minnie The Moocher, It's Sand, Man, Chordbusters' March, The Old Songs Medley, My Honey's Lovin' Arms, All The Things You Are, I Can't Run Away From You, Sixteen Tons, Old Grey Bonnet Medley, Together Wherever We Go , Danny Boy, Goodbye, Anna In Indiana, Midnight Rose, Jukebox Saturday Night Medley, Stardust, Mills Brothers Medley, Porgy and Bess Overture, A Foggy Day (In London Town), This Little Piggy Went To Market, Swanee, Is It True What They Say About Dixie, Renegades Opener, Margie, O My Love Is Like A Red, Red Rose, Bring Back Those Good Old Days , How's Every Little Thing In Dixie, Whippoorwill Medley , You're The Flower Of My Heart, Sweet Adeline, How Ya Gonna Keep 'Em Down On The Farm, and more

Earlene Rentz : Erie Canal

Work has never been so jazzy and fun as it is in this hip arrangement of the familiar folk song! Countermelodies are employed in the voices to create interesting harmonies and the accompaniment swings throughout, peppered with jazz chords and a rhythmic, driving feel. Snaps add to the HQ! (hip quotient)
