Society Champions in 1948, the Pittsburghers were trailblazers. They were the first to perform written arrangements and a key change in a contest. Featured on this album are anecdotes as told by one of the original members, Tom Palamone. It is replete with classic barbershop songs like "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and "Oh, What a Gal Was Mary." Most of them were written in the 1920's and '30's, and are liberally laced with double entendres. "You Can Never Be Too Sure About the Girls" is a charming example. Though the sound quality is not ideal, the expert handling of the material - and its merit as a keepsake of the era - is indisputable.
