Rural Route 4

Rural Route 4

Lead: Calvin Yoder. Tenor: Don Kahl. Baritone: Jim Bagby. Bass: Williard Yoder.

When the Rural Route 4 won the international quartet championship in 1986, they did not exactly qualify as an overnight sensation. Organized in 1971 by four residents of Cass County MO., the quartet would not win the gold until 15 years and two personnel changes later. Along the way were dozens of contests, from the chapter to international level, and years of hard work. But there was fun too, ar the RR4 gradually built a reputation as on of the most entertaining show quartets around.

Rural Route 4 : Friends and Relatives

When 1986 SPEBSQSA International Quartet champs RR4 made this recording in 1987, their producer told them they should consider making CDs. They went with albums and cassettes, and one month later everyone had CDs. So now by popular demand, we have a digitally remastered CD of this half-live, half-studio collection of 17 songs from one of the most popular and respected winners of SPEBSQSA Quartet Gold. "How's Every Little Thing in Dixie," "Rockabye Baby Days," "Lida Rose/Dream of Now," "Tie Me To Your Apron Strings Again," the heart-tugging "Little Pal," "Where the Black-Eyed Susans Grow," "I've Been Everywhere," "Old Apple Tree" and "The Richest Man in the World" are favorites. Lots of feeling, smooth, effortless harmonies-"Friends and Relatives" is ringing, straight-up, traditional barbershop from one of the best!
