They're back. The quartet with the International Personality to go with their International acclaim as Queens of Harmony start with a David Wright arrangement of Weird Al Yankovich's "This Is The Life." "It's Lonely At The Top" is over the top. There's a totally original arrangement of "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover" just before a version of "Shenandoah" that is so beautiful it's sends chills up and down. Whew, back to the yucks with "Help, I'm Turning Into My Parents." Oh yes we must mention "Twilight Zone/Twilight Tone," it's just what you might imagine. There isn't room to describe all the joy in this recording, suffice it to say that there is more vocal invention in Weekend Edition's creative arranging than this reviewer has heard before. Quite a statement, that!

Ok, let's get the obligatory kudos out of the way. Weekend Edition were the 1995 Queens of Harmony. You know that standing isn't just fluff, it truly indicates that this is one of the best quartets in the world - ever! Now that that's been said we can focus on the fabulous personality of this quartet and take it for granted that the singing doesn't get any better. On the first tune, "With Plenty Of Money And You," we are treated to one of the most inventive arrangements you'll ever hear as the brass band takes over. Then we have a delightfully funny description of participating in the International Competition, "(Ghost) Judges In The Pit," sung to the tune of "(Ghost) Riders In The Sky." It just goes on from there. Weekend Edition manages to put more personality into a perfect studio recording than almost anyone!
