One of the giants of easy listening, the trademark smooth voices and gentle melody of the Singers is the sound of the pop 60s as much as the Byrds or Simon & Garfunkel. In contrast to Dr. Timothy Leary's "Turn on, tune in and drop out," the mantra of the Johnny Mann Singers, dressed in white turtlenecks and red v-neck sweaters on their weekly Chevrolet TV show, was "Stand Up and Cheer," a positive attitude that led advertisers to use their sound to sell everything from soap to cereal. Crisp, upbeat covers of top 40 standards "She Loves You," "Never My Love," "Windy," "Mrs. Robinson," "Invisible Tears," "Love Is Blue," "I'll Remember You," "Daydream," "To Sir With Love," "Cherish"-led to millions of record sales, five Grammy nominations and two Grammy winners. Their definitive recording, a superb version of Jimmy Webb's "We Can Fly! Up, Up and Away," reached #6 on the UK singles chart in the summer of 1967. Twenty three accompanied pop tunes, as bright, cheerful, romantic, and familiar as you can imagine! The smooth sound of the sixties!
