Big Chicken Chorus : Poultry In Motion : 00  1 CD : Clay Hine

Big Chicken Chorus : Poultry In Motion

The Big Chicken Chorus offers top entertainment value, with great songs and medleys such as "It's A Good Day," "Beer Barrel Polka" and "How Do I Get Out Of This Chicken Outfit" medley. Including the members of 1999 Quartet Champs Fred, whose Clay Hine is director of this band of barnyard barbershoppers, the Chorus placed third in Anaheim. Some of the arrangements, such as "I Can't Give You Anything But Love/L-O-V-E" and the "Jungle Book Medley," are a virtual comic revue, with patter, exaggerated phrasing and silly word play; however, when it's time to get serious - read: sentimental - the Chorus knows how to straighten up and fly, well, right. "Georgia," and "Old Folks At Home" are restrained, stately and graceful.

Songlist: It's a Good Day, Beer Barrel Polka, Georgia On My Mind, I Can't Give You Anything But Love / L-O-V-E, You Are My Sunshine, Jungle Book Medley, You Tell Me Your Dream, Steppin' Out Tonight / When Francis Dances With Me, Old Folks at Home, Sh-Boom, Brown Eyes Why Are You Blue, The Apples Medley, I Love You Truly, Chicken Hearted, How Do I Get Out of This Chicken Outfit, The Star Spangled Banner Medley

Boston Common : Collective Works : 00  2 CDs

Boston Common : Collective Works

This beautifully packaged double CD truly conveys the Boston Common aesthetic, which earned them not only the 1980 Championship, but also a exalted reputation that became the stuff of legend. Though they had no full-time coach, big band arranger Lou Perry frequently wrote arrangements for them (a point of principle, explained further in the liner notes, that apparently resulted in some political fallout), and the big band influence can be easily discerned ("Melancholy Baby"). "We Three," co-arranged by Perry and the group themselves, sounds like the early vocal harmony that became doo wop, whereas "Chatanooga Shoe Shine Boy" is a blues/barbershop amalgam that definitely isn't typical (arranger's credit to the Four Rascals, a quartet to whom the Boston Common pay repeated tribute). In general, the group's reverence for barbershop as not merely entertainment but as art radiates throughout.

Songlist: It's A Good Day, If All My Dreams Were Made Of gold, Dancing At The Moving Picture Ball, Little Girl, Imagination, Don't Tell Me The Same Things Over Again, Lida Rose/ Till There Was You, Ten Feet Off The Ground, Sentimental Journey, In The Heart Of The City, There's Something I Like About Broadway, I Wonder What's Become Of Sally, Old Songs Medley, Caroline, There'll Be No New Tunes On This Old Piano, I'm Alone Because I Love You, From The First Hello (To The Last Goodbye), We Kinda Miss The Good Old Songs, What'll I Do, Many Happy Returns Of The Day, So Long Dearie, Am I Wasting My Time, I Don't Know Why, Barbershop Strut, My Melancholy Baby, Good Old Days, Who Told You, We Three, Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven, Back In Dad And Mother's Day, and more

Happiness Emporium : Entertainment/Control Yourself : 00  1 CD

Happiness Emporium : Entertainment/Control Yourself

The H.E. were International Champions in 1975. This double CD, comprising "That's Entertainment" and "Control Yourself," contains a smorgasbord of the best Broadway and show tunes, with some traditional barbershop as well. Many of the cuts on "That's Entertainment" are in fact medleys, organized around the original performer that popularized the songs, e.g. Astaire, Jolson and Durante, with a preface by the group themselves discussing the relative merits of each. In general, good-natured banter prevails, and the asides allow the listener to feel as if they were enjoying a live show! Of course, a Championship Group also possesses impeccable technique and originality, displayed through the uniqueness of their arrangements. The Happiness Emporium has much to smile about on that score, and so will you after you hear them!

Songlist: Astaire Medley: I'm Putin' On My Top Hat, When There's A Shine On Your Shoes, I Wont' Dance, Steppin' Out With My Baby, Easter Parade, Jolson Medley: Mammy, Rock-A-Bye Your Baby, Swanee, Durante Medley: Start Off Each Day With A Song, Ink-A-Dink-A Doo, I Can Do Without Broadway, Cohan Medley: Give My Regards To Broadway, Yankee Doodle Dandy, You're A Grand Old Flag, That's Entertainment, Sing/ Together Medley: I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing, Together, Lerner & Loewe Medley: On The Street Where You Live, Gigi, I've Grown Accustomed Ot Her Face, Godfrey Medley: Trail Of The Lonesome Pine, Slow Poke, Alice Blue Gown, Thank You World, Ain't She Sweet, When I'm Sixty-Four, I'm Looking Over A Four-Leaf Clover, Brothers, Walkin' My Baby Back Home, Minnesnowta, Control Yourself, Dream A Little Dream Of Me, It's A Good Day, Sleeping Child, Firefly, Harmonizin' Medley: Harmonizin', Sweet Lorraine, When My Sugar Walks Down The Street, I'm Just Breezin' Along With The Breeze, Button Up Your Overcoat
