Barbershop Quartet Champions 1968
| || |
Tenor: Al Mau Lead: Ted Bradshaw Baritone: Paul Graham Bass: Phil Foote
Springing from SPEBSQSA's contests and festivals aimed at young people, Baritone Paul Graham and lead Ted Bradshaw sang with the Devilaires at Arizona State. Other veterans of high school and college quartets came in and out of the group after its formation in 1964, helping it place 8th in Boston in 1965, but dropping to 21st in 1966. Adding Tenor Al Mau and Bass Phil Foote seemed to turn the Continentals around, and the group came out of nowhere to win Silver at the Los Angeles International in 1967. In 1968 they won it all, edging out the Golden Staters. One of the clearest, strongest leads ever to step up to a Barbershop mike, Ted Bradshaw shines on everything from "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," and "The Masquerade is Over," to the classic "I Believe," and the others match him note for breathless note. Sweet, Pure, Classic; in short, Incredible!
