Ink Spots: We Four

We Three (My Echo, My Shadow And Me)
If I Didn't Care
Maybe
When the Swallows Come Back to Capistrano
I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire
Address Unkown
Do I Worry?
So Sorry
Prisoner of Love
I'd Climb the Highest Mountain
Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall
The Gipsy
My Prayer
Puttin' and Takin'
Whispering Grass
Thoughtless
Ev'ry Night About This Time
To Each His Own
Don't Get Around Much Anymore
I'm Beginning to See the Light
Someone's Rocking My Dreamboat
Until the Real Thing Comes Along
When the Sun Goes Down
Bless You

Formed in 1934, the original three Ink Spots were soon heard regularly on the air and had a few recording sessions, but were on the verge of giving up when in 1939 they finally had a hit record with the song "If I Didn't Care." The magic ingredients, the soaring falsetto voice of Bill Kenny and the sonorous tones of "Hoppy" Jones in a laid-back, talking chorus, together with the distinctive guitar intro, introduced a languid and sentimental style and became the hallmark for many hit records. 24 of those hits (we just love the sheer quantity of music and value of these remastered, re-issued "best-of" collections by classic vocal groups) are featured on "The Best Of." "We Three (My Echo, My Shadow and Me)," Maybe," "When The Swallows Come Back to Capistrano," "I Don't Want To Set The World," "Do I Worry," "Prisoner of Love," "The Gypsy," "Puttin' and Takin'," "Whispering Grass," "Ev'ry Night About This Time," "Someone's Rocking My Dreamboat," "When The Sun Goes Down"... these are all very similar in their style, their light guitar and piano accompaniment, sweet, affected vocals, bluesy sentimentality and total coolness!
