Chiefs Of Staff

.

There's a nice close-up photo of one of the gold medals won in 1988 by this quartet from Des Plaines, IL on the back of 'Solid Gold,' and it's a beautiful thing-an apt match for the beauty of the performance that it takes to win one of them! There's also some great pix of the guys in Irish green outfits, in WWI military uniforms and in a nice group picture. 12 songs, some favorites: 'Looking at the World Through Rose Colored Glasses,' 'What Kind Of Fool Am I,' the very funny 'I Used To Call Her Baby/Baby Face/I Want A Girl Medley,' 'It's A Great Day for the Irish/It's A Long Way to Tipperary/MacNamara's Band Medley,' 'They Were All Out Of Step But Jim,' 'Lonesome, That's All,' Ricky Nelson's 'Mary Lou' and 'Kiss Me One More Time.' 'Solid Gold' is a finely-crafted, spirited collection from a hugely talented quartet who were named 1988's International Champs!

Chiefs Of Staff : Memories

Review: 1988 winners from Illinois, who have a solidly vertical approach and fold some adult contemporary pop into their mix. While we have no specific knowledge that they were an influence, we detect similarities to Dealer's Choice in terms of overall sound and style. Their tone has a suffused brightness, but is never strident. Ornamentation and solo passages add texture ("Memory" is particularly noteworthy), crescendos ("I've Gotta Be Me") when used, add impact. Though uncredited, instrumental tracks can be heard on a couple of the arrangements ("When Will I Be Loved," "With Plenty Of Money and You").

Songlist: Hey Look Me Over, Memory, I've Gotta Be Me, With Plenty Of Money And You, When Will I Be Loved, The Song Is Ended, Back In The Old Routine, Miss You, Don't Fence Me In, Gospel Medley

Chiefs Of Staff : Tribute

Review: Des Plaines, IL's Chiefs of Staff pay "Tribute" on this CD to coaches, wives, families and fans that helped them along in their quest for 1988 SPEBSQSA quartet Gold. But in their song selection they also tip their hats to many legendary SPEBSQSA groups who inspired them, from the Night Hawks' immortal "Buddy, Can You Spare A Dime," to the Mark IV's "Piano Roll Blues" and "Million Tomorrows." A nod to Detroit's Gentlemen's Agreement's "Ma, She's Making Eyes," Chicago's Elastic Four's "Mood Indigo," and foursomes such as the Suntones, Chicago News, Four Statesmen, and the Easternaires. 11 tunes, some other favorites are "Sam the Old Accordion Man," "They Wrote 'Em in the Good Old Days," "Wonderful One" and "Keep Your Eye On the Girlie You Love/Somebody Stole My Gal Medley." Beautifully arranged, flawlessly, expressively harmonized-"Tribute" is a gem!

Songlist: Sam the Old Accordion Man, Little Town in the Old County Down, They Wrote 'Em in the Good Old Days, Mood Indigo, When I Look in Your Eyes, Old Piano Roll Blues, Ma, Wonderful One, I'd Give A Million Tomorrows (for Just One Yesterday), Keep Your Eye on the Girlie You Love / Somebody Stole My Gal (Medley), Brother, Can You Spare A Dime
