5 Boroughs : Heart's Desire : 00  1 CD : 6905

5 Boroughs : Heart's Desire

We love these collections of authentic, seldom-heard Doo Wop from Collectables Records, who find original street-corner a cappella groups like The Five Boroughs (actually seven guys), put them in a recording studio and present their sweet harmonies for all of us to enjoy! "Hearts Desire" has 17 soulful cuts, eight that are pure a cappella, the title tune, "I'll Stop Wanting You," "My Girlfriend," "Secret Love," "10 Commandments of Love," "Danny Boy," "Pennies from Heaven" and "Over the Rainbow;" eight accompanied by a band, such as "The Way You Look Tonight," "The Verdict," "Recess in Heaven," "Loraine," "Unchained Melody" and "Darling You," and one instrumental, "Harlem Nocturne." Most of these are standard covers, nicely done, and some we're hearing for the first time. All in all, "Heart's Desire" is a trip back to a simpler time, when you could hear a new, exciting American art form being born, on the radio, in a concert hall or even on a street corner!

Songlist: Heart's Desire, I'll Stop Wanting You, My Girlfriend, Secret Love, Ten Commandments of Love, Danny Boy, Pennies From Heaven, Over The Rainbow, The Way You Look Tonight, Until The Real Thing Comes Along, The Verdict, Recess In Heaven, Loraine, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, Unchained Melody , Darling You, Harlem Nocturne

Lennon Sisters : Favorite Songs From the Lennon Sisters Hour Vol 1

From their first 1955 appearance on the Lawrence Welk Show as 9- (Janet) to 16-year olds (Dee Dee) singing an a cappella "He," America fell in love with the 4 Lennon Sisters. For 13 years of Saturday nights, they appeared on the Welk show before, as grown women, they finally broke with him to do their own "The Lennon Sisters Hour" from 1969 to 1970. "Favorite" is the first of 4 CDs of "best of" songs from this show there are 10 songs, and a lot of warm memories for Lennon fans here. "May We Wish You Well," the show's theme song, the sweet "Simple Life," "Softly," "Love In A Home," "Can't Take That Away From Me," and "Bless This House." We particularly liked the production medley "One Way Ticket/Grass Is Always Greener," the jazzy "Pennies from Heaven," "Let Go," and "Walt Disney Medley" (the Sisters' "Hi to You" and "Mickey Mouse Mambo," from a guest spot on the Mickey Mouse Club, was their first recording). America's Angels in top form!

Songlist: May We Wish You Well, Simple Life, Softly, One Way Ticket / Grass is Always Greener, Pennies from Heaven, Love In A Home, Can't Take That Away From Me, Let Go, Walt Disney Medley, Bless This House

Modernaires : The Very Best Of : 00  1 CD : 6491

Modernaires : The Very Best Of

The four man, one woman swing/jazz group The Modernaires, who rode their distinctive bright, jazzy vocal style from the big band era of the 40s, up into the vocal jazz nightclub sound of the 60s, are featured on another wonderful EMI compilation of two lps. The lps are a tribute to two of their Swing Era contemporaries, bandleaders Tommy Dorsey and Glen Miller, giving us 24 wonderful jazz band-accompanied winners: "Tuxedo Junction," "A String of Pearls," "Sunrise Serenade," "Pennsylvania 6-5000," "In The Mood," "Little Brown Jug," "Stardust," "Boogie Woogie," "Song of India," "Yes, Indeed," "I'll Never Smile Again"...we could go on and on, but let us just say that each song is a classic and a hit. The Modernaires had timeless class, style, humor and the kind of tight, sweet harmonies that put their own stamp on songs we thought we'd heard before. A great gift for two kinds of people: anyone who was lucky enough to have been there to listen and dance to this great music when it came out, and anyone who wasn't!

Songlist: There! I've Said it Again, Coffee Five, Doughnuts Five (Coffee and Doughnuts Ten), Jukebox Saturday Night, Salute to Glenn Miller, a. Moonlight Serenade, b. Elmer's Tune, c.

The Skyliners : Greatest Hits : 00  1 CD : OST 8873

The 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

Various Artists : Best Of Acappella Vol 3 : 00  1 CD : 7112

Various Artists : Best Of Acappella Vol 3

Yo! It's just now 1966. The British invasion is in full force, even in New York and New Jersey, the last bastion of doo-woppers. As most of the groups were composed of members seventeen to nineteen years old and the draft was going gangbusters, groups were disappearing right and left. But acappella survived in spite of the fact that it received no airplay except on WHBI-FM. Volume 3 introduces seven new groups, The Islanders, The Durhams, Count Five, Horizons, Nicky & Naks, the Apparitions and the Enchantments in addition to the two veterans, the Citadels and the Quotations. So you'll find the nine groups singing twenty tunes on this CD reissue. The digital restoration of the original tapes is a work of art. Relic's presentation is a fascinating slice of the history of acappella music.

Songlist: I Wonder Why , A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening , I Do Believe , My True Story , Tonite I Fell In Love , Maureen , I've Seen Everything , Bells of Love , Rock 'n Roll Cha Cha , Why Did You Make Me Cry? , Sweeter Than, Maybe You'll Be There , Pennies From Heaven , Love Is a Many Splendored Thing , Part of Our Love , Down On My Knees , Hey, Hey Baby , Dream World , Don't Say We're Through , There Was A Time

Vocal Point : Grand Slam : 00  1 CD : JCo48

Vocal Point : Grand Slam

Since its founding in 1991 by two BYU students, the 8 to 9 men group has gone through many changes of personnel and otherwise (opening twice for Rockapella!). From 1994 to 2001 the group was directed by Jim Anglesey, "Slam" represents his final effort with VP before moving on professionally. Jim's love was watching the group grow as goodwill ambassadors for BYU, the LDS Church, and for a cappella singing, routinely going to schools to teach vocal workshops wherever they'd go, for instance. 13 spirited (sometimes even manic), funny, amazing songs: some favorites: Weird Al Yankovic's painful "Since You've Been Gone/One More Minute," "Breakfast at Denny's," a spot-on parody of "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (and what the title is referring to, get it?) "Pennies from Heaven," "I'll Be," "Love One Another," "The Cup of Life," a bluesy "Summertime," and the inspirational "In The First Light." Excellent, and recommended!

Songlist: A Pedir Su Mano, Since You've Been Gone / One More Minute, Pennies from Heaven, In My Dreams, Sparkle / Jack's Heroes, Breakfast at Dennny's , Breakfast at Dennny's, Bach's Air on a G String, I'll Be, Love One Another, Cup of Life, She Loves You, Summertime, In the First Light
