Auto Towners : Auto Towners : 00  1 CD

Auto Towners : Auto Towners

This is one snazzy quartet - the Auto Towners had definitely calculated the entertainment quotient, and one look at them in their costumes on the back cover will tell you that; their win at the 1966 Chicago Convention made quite an impression! Though they only continued quartetting until '69, songs such as "My Love Is Like A Red Red Rose" (with a solo by Clint Bostick, baritone) and "Everything's Coming Up Roses" evoke all of the romance and nostalgia of this classic American form, and are impossible to resist. Truly awesome versions of "I Wish You Love," "Dancing On The Ceiling" and "Through The Years" show that the Auto Towners actual forte were tender, achingly lovely ballads - the harmonic resonance of these four voices would stop traffic!

Songlist: in my brand new automobile, white cliffs of dover, if we can't be the same old sweethearts, margie, cuddle up a little closer, sonny boy, lida rose / dream of now (Bobbie Bostick, solo), pal of my cradle days, lorabelle lee, sweet dreams will ever take you home, you can't see the sun when you're crying, mame, charleston, i walk alone (al rebkop solo), O My Love Is Like A Red, Red Rose, a fellow needs a girl (carl Dablke, solo), everything's coming up roses, try to remember, can't help lovin' that gal of mine, georgie girl, for me and my gal, Once Upon a Time, i wish you love, On the Boardwalk in Atlantic City, dancing on the ceiling, through the years

Hi-Lo's : Love Nest / All Over The Place

A new release from the Hi-Lo's is always a welcome occurrence but especially so on this disc which features two of their finest recordings; the 1959 "Love Nest" and the 1960 "All Over the Place". Accompanied by their long time collaborators The Frank Comstock Orchestra and with vocal arrangements from the incomparable Gene Puerling, this is some of the finest vocal jazz you could have the pleasure of hearing. This recording features many Hi-Lo's gems that have not been available on previously released compilations with such classics as "Fairyland", "Isle of Capri", "April in Fairbanks" and "Island of the West Indies" among others. The Hi-Lo's were at the height of their fame when they recorded these albums and were recent winners of reader's poll in both Downbeat and Playboy and were performing regularly around the country. These sophisticated, bright and swinging arrangements overjoyed both critics and public alike and we feel confident you, as vocal harmony fans, will be equally bowled over.

Songlist: The Love Nest, Dancing on the Ceiling, Yesterdays, Impossible, But Beautiful, In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning, The Love Nest, This Heart of Mine, Music For Lovers, My Romance, The Lamp is Low, Wait Till You See Her, Fairyland, All Over the Place, Bali Ha'i, How Are Things In Glocca Morra?, My Little Grass Shack in Kealakeua, Hawaii, Sand in My Shoes, Autumn in New York, April in Fairbanks, Italian Street Song, Massachusetts, Isle of Capri, A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square, Dixie, Island in the West Indies
