Directed by Manfred Adams

When "Ladies First" was founded in 1991, they didn't know that their name would also become a testimony of our success. Since the first German Barbershop Competition in 1992, Ladies First has taken first place every time. They won three provincial choral competitions and were the first German Chorus to qualify and be invited to the Sweet Adelines Internationals in Atlanta in 1999. Their director, experienced German "Barbershopper" Manfred Adams, brings the best out of his "Ladies," whether it be in music, choreography or simply entertainment. "1st" is all sung in English, and is an impressive, finely-crafted tour-de-force of a CD. The powerful harmonies, the innovative arrangements and the sheer, infectious spirit of these four women show why they have won so many awards in the growing European Barbershop movement. 15 cuts, "This is Some Lucky Day," "Original Dixieland One Step," "Stars Fell on Alabama," "It Don't Mean A Thing," an amazing arranged "Drunken Sailor," a "Good Old Acappella" that warms our hearts, a smoky "Hit Me With A Hot Note," a randy "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme," Elvis' "Love Me Tender," and a swinging "Royal Garden Blues" are favorites. Sweet Adelines has taken strong root in Europe, and Ladies First has the kind of sound and pizzazz that we have only seen from groups wearing International medals and posing in front of large trophies-give 'em a listen!
