Men's Barbershop Quartet Recordings

Four men singing barbershop╦ć it's the quintessential image, what for the general public is frequently the mental picture called up when they hear the word a cappella. That's what happens when tens of thousands of people practice their art for three-quarters of a century. But whether it's a chorus or a quartet, the ringing sounds, those locked-in chords, of men's barbershop have earned the right to be that quintessential image by being evocative, thrilling and exhilarating ╦ć some of these tags will send goose bumps down your arms! Whether contestable arrangements or stretching the boundaries of barbershop, these groups will not disappoint.

Storm Front : The Road to Gold

Review: 2010 International Barbershop Harmony Society Champs Storm Front describe as: "Three years, Nine contest sets, One Gold Medal. Enjoy Storm Front's journey on "The Road to Gold!" The group's extensive use of humor and parody, particularly directed at the process they have had to go through to finally win are a big reason why they have consistently been judged in the top ten. They placed sixth in Nashville in 2008, singing Showstopper parodies "The Champs are Coming Back," "We've Grown Accustomed to 3rd Place," and the hilarious "Don't Ask Me Why;" third in Anaheim in 2009, where they unleashed their "Medal Come Back" parody, the ludicrous "Lida Rose/Dream of Now" medley, and their Finalist "Top Ten Parody;" and Philadelphia 2010, where their "Wonderful World" costumes, the contest rule "Anything Goes" parody and the manic Jukebox "Jukebox Saturday Night Medley (Car Song)" montage gave them their coveted Gold Medals! Although some of the inside Barbershop jokes went over our heads, as these are all live cuts, it's clear they all hit the judges and audiences right in their BHS funny bones. There are two discs here: Disc 1 has all six songs from their Finals performances in 2008 and 2009, and Disc 2 has all six songs from their incredible win in 2010. Several songs, such as the totally silly "Where or When," "Don't Fence Me In," "Lida Rose," and "We've Grown Accustomed to 3rd Place," are repeated, sometimes more than once. Wonderful harmonies, ringing, incredible closing chords, very funny, creative material-it all adds up to great entertainment, and, happily, finally, to Gold for Storm Front!

Songlist: The Champs Are All Coming Back, Don't Fence Me In, Where or When, Comes Love, We've Grown Accustomed to 3rd Place, Don't Ask Me Why, Medal Come Back To Me, Where or When, Don't Fence Me In, Lida Rose, Stay Awake, Top 10 Parody, Where or When, What A Wonderful World , Lida Rose, Anything Goes, We've Grown Accustomed to 3rd Place, Jukebox Saturday Night Medley (Car Song)

Suntones : Masterwork Series

Review: Miami, Florida's Suntones, formed in 1957 singing innovative arrangements of "Old Black Magic" and Hi-Lo's songs, finally won SPEBSQSA Quartet Gold in 1961. They went on to record extensively and seek professional bookings outside of barbershop circles, causing them to perfect their act, and helping to create a world of possibilities for top-drawer barbershop groups in the entertainment industry. "Suntones" is a "best-of" collection of 23 songs, certainly tough choices given the large number of excellent recordings by the group. From the first cut, "Bye, Bye Blues," the final tune in their Gold-winning set that became a trademark for them, we see how special this group is. "After You've Gone," which begins straight, introduces a major 7th chord, jazzy 2nd chorus and wild and crazy tag. "If You Can't Tell the World She's A Good Little Girl," "Old Songs Medley" showed that even though they tended toward daring innovations, they never lost their love of the simple, "square" barbershop songs. "Danny Boy," "That Old Black Magic," "West Side Story Medley," "Jezebel," "Where Is Love," "Show Me Where The Good Times Are," "Tennessee Waltz," "Shrimp Boats" and "For All We Know" need to be listened to again and again to appreciate the chances the Suntones took, and how solid the barbershop fundamentals were that formed their base. "Suntones" is an amazing recording on many levels, and certainly mandatory listening for aspiring quartets to expand their horizons.

Songlist: Bye Bye Blues, Emaline, After You've Gone, If You Can't Tell The World She's A God Little Girl, Old Songs Medley, Danny Boy, No, No, Nora, Finian's Rainbow Medley, That Old Black Magic, A Little Street Where Old Friends Meet, West Side Story Medley, It's A Most Unusual Day, Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring, Jezbel, Where Is Love?, Watch What Happens, As Time Goes By, Two Guy Medley, Show Me Where The Good Times Are, Tennessee Waltz, Shrimp Boats, Armed Forces Medley, For All We Know

Tuxedo Junction : Tuxedo Junction

Review: Even if you don't give a fig about barbershop, you'll find yourself appreciating the warm and heartfelt performance of this foursome from Austin, Texas. Yes, it's four part harmony in the barbershop style, for certain, but their tastes are as sprawling as the great state they call home. Standards are the majority, with special kudos for a standout arrangement of "When I Fall In Love"; the luscious harmonic motion of the coda is pure honey. Other pleasures are "Peg O' My Heart," "It Had To Be You" and their namesake, "Tuxedo Junction," as well as the doo wop favorite, "Silhouettes," Larry Gatlin's "Alleluia," the Beach Boys' "In My Room" and our nomination for the most sylvan of melodies, "Lullaby."

Songlist: Tuxedo Junction, Java Jive, It Had To Be You, When I Fall In Love, Jeepers Creepers / Them There Eyes Medley, I Can Dream, Can't I?, Peg O' My Heart, Birth Of The Blues, Midnight Blues, Lida Rose / will I Ever Tell You?, In My Room, Silhouettes, Alleluia, Lullaby

Vocal Spectrum : Vocal Spectrum

Review: Hail to the champs! The competition was as tough as ever in Indianapolis at the International Barbershop Convention and St. Louis based Vocal Spectrum emerged to become one of the youngest championship groups ever. Loaded with talent this exceptional quartet delivers here a top-notch recording that delights from beginning to end and surely demonstrates why they took top honors. Tim Waurick (Tenor), Eric Dalbey (Lead), Chris Hallam (Bass), and Jonny Moroni (Baritone) have also been most fortunate to have as friends, coaches and mentors the great Jim Henry and David Wright whose arrangements are sung on the recording. A special treat is the track "Scarborough Fair" when they are joined by the late Gas House Gang and this recording is sure to become a barbershop classic.

Songlist: South Rampart Street Parade, Small Fry, Jeanie With The Light Brown Hair, Joshua Fit De Battle Of Jericho, Mam'selle, This Ole House, And Can It Be, My Wonderful One , I Love Jazz Medley, Bring Him Home, Scarborough Fair (With Gas House Gang), Cruella De Vil

Vocal Spectrum : Vocal Spectrum 2

Review: 2006 International Quartet Championship Vocal Spectrum are one of the youngest quartets to ever win such a coveted award and are a fine example of the fresh yet traditional approach to the noble art of barbershop singing. This new release is a true gem and will please both the traditionalists and those looking to expand the barbershop sound. The opening Bobby Darin song "As Long As I'm Singin'", arranged by David Wright, sets the tone as this acclaimed arranger has been coaching the quartet for several years and his influence is most apparent. This recording belongs in all barbershop fans collection.

Songlist: As Long As I'm Singing, I Wan'na Be Like You (The Monkey Song), On the Street Where You Live, The Headless Horseman, Beautiful Savior, The Barber of Seville Overture, Let's Live It Up, Cheer Up Charlie, Country Boy, Undecided (with the Buzz), Good Vibrations, Go the Distance

Vocal Spectrum : Vocal Spectrum 3

Review: A Barbershop quartet hailing from St. Charles, Missouri, Vocal Spectrum won the Barbershop Harmony Society's International Collegiate Quartet Contest in 2004, then went on to become the 2006 BHS International Quartet Champions. All members of Vocal Spectrum are graduates of Lindenwood University in St. Charles, and all are members of Ambassadors of Harmony, which won BHS International Chorus Gold in 2004 and 2009. The group's distinctive sound centers around the incredibly high vocal range of tenor Tim Waurick and lead Eric Dalbey. There are 12 finely-crafted songs here, some favorites are a trio of Disney tunes, "When I See An Elephant Fly" from "Dumbo," "It's Not Easy" from "Pete's Dragon" and "Aladdin Medley;" "One Hand, One Heart" from "West Side Story;" Jazz Master Thelonious Monk's iconic "'Round Midnight;" Brian Wilson's "California Girls," sung with the fast-rising Swedish Barbership quartet Ringmasters; Gospel tune "I'll Live For Glory," "Willow Weep for Me," arranged by BHS arranging legend Ed Waesche; and U2's "MLK," a soulful tribute to Martin Luther King. Every song is a gem here, and we love how these tremendously talented guys use their range, versatility and love for other genres of music to create one of the most remarkable Barbershop recordings we have heard!

Songlist: When I See an Elephant Fly, Willow Weep for Me, I'll Live in Glory, 'Round Midnight, It's Not Easy, Doggone, I've Done It, Weekend in New England, California Girls, MLK, Yes, Indeed!, One Hand, One Heart, Aladdin Medley

And in 2006 won the coveted International Barbershop Quartet Contest - becoming the first quartet in history to win all 3 possible medals (Collegiate Quartet, Men's Quartet, and Chorus Medal).

Western Continentals : Western Continentals

Review: 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!

Songlist: Are you from Dixie?, Heart of a clown, If you ever fall in love, These foolish things remind me of you, My lovely one, Everything's coming up roses, By the time i get to Phoenix, Green green grass of home , Lone prairie, Down by the riverside autumn leaves, On a wornderful day like today, The boy I used to be, I've gotta be me, The masquerade is over, I'm gonna live till I die, Old....., I believe , Love is a many splendored thing, Annabel Lee, Little pal, Gonna Build a Mountain, When the Saints go Marching In

Wheelhouse : Wheelhouse

Review: Maryland-based Wheelhouse are relatively new to the barbershop scene, forming in January of 2002, but all of the members have deep roots in barbershop, as well as a cappella in general- Bass Mike Kelly, for instance, sings with a cappella jazz quintet "High Five," and Tenor Brandon has another a cappella quartet, "Crossroads." That feeling, that ring, that magical place where 4 voices become one, and the intensity of sound becomes greater than the sum of its parts-that's what these guys love, and from this strong, confident debut CD, and from their 8th place finish in the 2004 International Finals, it's what's lifting them steadily to the ranks of SPEBSQSA's elite. 14 classics, "Anytime," "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning," "There Goes My Heart," "How High the Moon," "All Alone," "The Old Folks at Home," "You're Nobody 'til Somebody Loves You" and "When I Leave the World Behind"-we've heard them all before, but never quite like this. In baseball, your "wheelhouse" means a pitch is right where you like it, where you can just nail it, like Wheelhouse nails these tunes. Watch out for these guys!

Songlist: Anytime, A Wink and a Smile, In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning, South, I'm Confessin' (That I Love You), There Goes My Heart, Red Head / Nobody Knows What a Red Head Mama Can Do, How High the Moon, All Alone, I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter, The Old Folks at Home, A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening, You're Nobody 'til Somebody Loves You, When I Leave The World Behind

Wise Guys : Wise Guys

Review: With a minimum height of 6'-3," the four gentle giants called Wise Guys have earned the title of 1998 SPEBSQSA Sunshine District (Florida) Champions, and are currently ranked 27th internationally, There are 15 songs here, some chestnuts like "Good Old A Cappella," "Come Take Your Place In My Heart," "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," "Happy Go Lucky Lane" "Naturally," "We're Gonna Have Smooth Sailin'," and "Trickle Trickle" are nicely harmonized. But we especially liked the comedic material like "Wacky Intro," "Cow Patti," "The Preacher," "Mississippi Squirrel Revival," "Goodbye, World, Goodbye," and two live out-takes of "Cow Patti" and "Wacky Intro" which are included at the end of the CD. The smooth, confident harmonies--and especially the strong comic sense that make this a standout CD are the same things that are helping this young quartet begin carving a good-sized niche in the Barbershop World, one delighted audience at a time.

Songlist: Wacky Intro, You Brought a New Kind of Love to Me, Good Old A Cappella, Come Take Your Place in My Heart, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, Happy Go Lucky Lane, Cow Patti, The Preacher, Mississippi Squirrel Revival, Naturally, We're Gonna Have Smooth Sailin', Trickle Trickle, Goodbye World, Goodbye
