Record buyers agreed with Frank Sinatra's early 50's observation of the young Canadian pop quartet, "it's the freshest, nicest sound we've heard in a long, long, time," helping The Four Lads score almost 30 hits on the US Charts between 1952 and 1959. An audition over the phone in Toronto led to a 30-week run at NYC's fancy Le Ruban Bleu, and the Lads never looked back, appearing on Perry Como's and Dave Garraway's shows, then signed by Mitch Miller at Columbia Records. Originally released in 1957, "Sing Frank Loesser" (one of Broadway's, and Cinema's, most successful writers) was a popular album for the group. 9 songs, which actually become 25 when you add in the three Loesser medleys, "Where's Charley? Medley," five songs ("Once In Love With Amy," "Pernambuco," "My Darling, My Darling"); "Hans Christian Anderson Medley," five songs ("Thumbelina," "The Inch Worm," "Wonderful Copenhagen"); and "Guys and Dolls Medley," six songs, ("Guys And Dolls," "Sit Down You're Rockin' The Boat," "More I Cannot Wish You"). The others, "I Don't Want To Walk Without You," "Spring Will Be A Little Late This Year," "On A Slow Boat To China," "Two Sleepy People," and "What Are You Doing New Year's Eve," are the very definition of 50s romantic pop. All orchestrally accompanied, and all as sweet and bright, innocent and entertaining as you can imagine!
