Saturday, June 27, 1964, undoubtedly was the happiest day in the history of the Riverside, CA chapter. On that day the Riverside Citrus Belters chorus won 5th place bronze medals in its first International competition. And four chapter leaders, a group known as the Sidewinders, became the new International quartet champions. Some championship quartets, by necessity or by choice, have not always been strong members of the chapters to which they belonged. Not the Sidewinders. Tenor Jerry Fairchild had long been chorus director. Lead Joe Daniels had been president and was about to be named to that post again. Bass Jay Wright was three-term secretary. Bari Gene Boyd was past membership vice president, show chairman, and perennial committee member.

Sidewinders : One More Time    Out of Print

1964 Barbershop Quartet Gold medal winners The Sidewinders, all members of the same SPEBSQSA chapter in San Antonio, who some people call the "Greatest Barbershop Quartet ever," deserve a "best of" CD, and we have it here in our hands! "One More Time" is ringing, chord-bending old-time Barbershop that SPEBSQSA "supergroups" try to recreate, but the Sidewinders achieved naturally, by singing, performing and competing together for decades. 19 songs, divided into "Early Days" ("Roll Out Of Bed With A Smile,"), "Chord Records" ("Ramona," "There'll Be Some Changes Made," "True Love" and "Molly Malone"), "Gold Medal Years" ("All American Girl," "Because," "Little Captain Of My Heart" and "Try To Remember"); and "Favorites" ("I Left My Heart In San Francisco," "Sailin' Down The Chesapeake Bay," "Tears For Souvenirs" and "Today"). These songs tug our heartstrings and push our nostalgia buttons like few other groups we've heard. "One More Time" is the very essence of great Barbershop-so cue up the CD player, sit back and enjoy!

Songlist: The Chordbuster March, Roll Out Of Bed With A Smile, Ramona, There'll Be Some Changes Made, True Love, Molly Malone (Cockles Mussels), Ah, Sweet Mystery Of Life, This Is All I Ask, All American Girl, Because, A Wonderful Guy, Little Captain Of My Heart, Try To Remember, I Left My Heart In San Francisco, Sailin' Down The Chesapeake Bay, Tears For Souvenirs, Today, A Child's Prayer, A Garden In The Rain

Sidewinders : Sidewinders    Out of Print

On his Sunday night show in 1964, Ed Sullivan introduced the "brand new International Champs, the Sidewinders," who quickly broke into a rousing "For Me and My Gal." Tenor Jerry Fairchild, Lead Joe Daniels, Bass Jay Wright and Baritone Gene Boyd had placed 5th and 3rd before winning it all in San Antonio in July of 1964. Their sound is so clean, crisp and upbeat it's hard to wipe the smile off your face when listening to a cover like "Chattanooga Shoeshine Boy." All 22 songs are essentially perfect, but some standouts are "The Way You Look Tonight," "Dangerous Dan McGrew," and their most-requested "My Coloring Book." Classic stuff!

Songlist: Sailin' Away On The Henry Clay, I'm So Alone With A Crowd, Today, My Gal, She Has Some Wonderful Ways, I Left My Heart In San Francisco, Just The Way You Look Tonight, Sailin' Down The Chesapeake Bay, Tears For Souvenirs, Brokenhearted, A Garden In The Rain, My Coloring Book, A Child's Prayer
