"Hits from Hollywood & Broadway" is another generous, remastered collection of pop hits, this one by the first "Fab Four," The Four Aces, the most successful recording group worldwide in the 1950s, scoring 44 chart successes between 1951 and 1959. Most of those have been reissued, but their album tracks have been neglected, and Sepia Records decided to feature 26 selections (all accompanied) from films and stage shows that the Aces recorded. Beginning in 1946 when Al Alberts got together with sax player Dave Mahoney. They got together back home in Pennsylvania with drummer Lou Silvestri and trumpeter Rosario "Sod" Vacarro, and evolved into a vocal quartet with Al at lead. Offered a song by local songwriters called "It's No Sin," the foursome recorded and distributed it themselves, which caught the attention of Decca, who signed the Aces, who were on their way! These are all well-known and loved songs: "Standing on the Corner," "Too Close for Comfort," "Get Me to the Church on Time," "Till There Was You," "Tonight," "Small World," "I Love Paris," "Bali Ha'i," "Hawaiian Wedding Song," "Arrivederci Roma," "Love is a Many Splendored Thing," "Whatever Will Be, Will Be," "Tammy, "Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo" and "Three Coins in the Fountain," all of which feature the bright, upbeat, beautifully harmonic sound of the Four Aces. Sit back and enjoy this sweet blast from the past!
