I'm Always Chasing Rainbows

Music by Harry Carroll

"I'm Always Chasing Rainbows" is a popular Vaudeville song. The music is credited to Harry Carroll, although the melody is actually adapted from Fantaisie-Impromptu by Frédéric Chopin. The lyrics were written by Joseph McCarthy, and the song was published in 1917 and introduced in the Broadway show Oh, Look! which opened in March, 1918.[1] The song was sung in the show by the Dolly Sisters.[1] Judy Garland sang it in the 1941 film Ziegfeld Girl. It was subsequently sung by Jack Oakie in the 1944 film The Merry Monahans and was again featured in the 1945 film The Dolly Sisters (1945 in film), where it was sung by John Payne.[1] It was also included for part of the run (and in the cast album) of the 1973 revival of Irene. The song is a true popular standard, recorded by many artists over the years.

The Four Freshmen : In Concert

The liner notes merely tell us that "In Concert" was recorded in the early sixties, probably at a number of live performances. The signature tight, bright harmonies are there, lightly accompanied by what sounds like an excellent jazz combo, but in fact are the 4F themselves, which always prompts the question: how can these guys sing so well and play instruments at the same time? There are 11 songs, mostly of the "torch song" variety: "You've Got Me Crying Again," "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows," "Love Lost," "There Will Never Be Another You," "Polka Dots and Moonbeams," "How Can I Tell Her," "Angel Eyes," "Blues In The Night," "Fools Rush In," "Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring" and "In This Whole Wide World." The electricity of a live performance, while losing none of the excellent recording quality and tone-music to slow dance to!

Songlist: You've Got Me Crying Again, I'm Always Chasing Rainbows, Love Lostwomens, There Will Never Be Another You, Polka Dots and Moonbeams, How Can I Tell Her, Angel Eyes, Blues In the Night, Fools Rush In, Their Hearts Were Full of Spring, In This Whole Wide World

In its first nine months, Reno, NV-based Q took first place at the divisional level (California/northern Nevada), at the district level (not only winning its district, but outscoring every quartet in all sixteen SPEBSQSA districts) and finished 28th at the world championships in Montreal. Coaching other quartets at the Sacramento Area Quartet Workshop and student quartets at the Northern California Youth Harmony Camp, receiving standing ovations for its music and witty jokes at every barbershop show it headlined, Q went into the studio to record The First Year, its debut CD. What a year! "First Year" has 13 well-chosen classics that showcase the group's ringing chords and tight harmonies: "This Is It (Bugs Bunny Overture," Lerner & Lowe's "Almost Like Being In Love," "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows," a very nice "Q Eyes Medley," "Alice Blue Gown," the traditional "I've Been Working On The Railroad," "I Used To Call Her Baby Medley," and Irving Berlin's "When The Midnight Choo Choo Leaves For Alabam." Randy Newman's heart-tugger "When She Loved Me" is particularly fine. Keep an eye on Q-they're making things happen in the Barbershop world!
