Ladies First : 1st : 00  1 CD : Manfred Adams

Ladies First : 1st

When "Ladies First" was founded in 1991, they didn't know that their name would also become a testimony of our success. Since the first German Barbershop Competition in 1992, Ladies First has taken first place every time. They won three provincial choral competitions and were the first German Chorus to qualify and be invited to the Sweet Adelines Internationals in Atlanta in 1999. Their director, experienced German "Barbershopper" Manfred Adams, brings the best out of his "Ladies," whether it be in music, choreography or simply entertainment. "1st" is all sung in English, and is an impressive, finely-crafted tour-de-force of a CD. The powerful harmonies, the innovative arrangements and the sheer, infectious spirit of these four women show why they have won so many awards in the growing European Barbershop movement. 15 cuts, "This is Some Lucky Day," "Original Dixieland One Step," "Stars Fell on Alabama," "It Don't Mean A Thing," an amazing arranged "Drunken Sailor," a "Good Old Acappella" that warms our hearts, a smoky "Hit Me With A Hot Note," a randy "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme," Elvis' "Love Me Tender," and a swinging "Royal Garden Blues" are favorites. Sweet Adelines has taken strong root in Europe, and Ladies First has the kind of sound and pizzazz that we have only seen from groups wearing International medals and posing in front of large trophies-give 'em a listen!

Songlist: This Is Some Lucky Day, Love Is Here To Stay, Original Dixiland One Step, Stars Fell On Alabama, It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing), The Rose, Drunken Sailor, One Alone, Good Old A Cappella, Their Hearts Were Full of Spring, Hit Me With A Hot Note, When October Goes, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Love Me Tender, Royal Garden Blues

Rendition : Rendition Rocks!

Hailing from Lubbuck Texas this talented quartet has placed well in recent international competitions and with this release they show themselves as a quartet to be reckoned with.

Some great barbershop standards along with some lesser known tunes makes for a most enjoyable listen.

Songlist: Good Old A Cappella, Change The World, I Love To Hear That Good Old Barbershop Style, I Never Meant To Fall In Love, Sweet Dreams, Some Lucky Day, Mary, Did You Know?, Yes Sir, That's My Baby, Eagles Medley, You're Still You, When I Lift Up My Head, You Ain't Gettin Diddle Squat, Hit That Jive Jack, Seven Bridges Road

Ron Feingold : Solo Effort : 00  1 CD

Ron Feingold : Solo Effort

We have enjoyed Ron Feingold as MC of the last two West Coast Summits, and saw him perform a number of the bits "live." The "live" is in quotes because Ron performs live with a recording of himself singing 4-part harmony. There are 11 songs here, "Oh What A Night," the masterful "A Day In The Life," which includes every ad jingle you or Ron could remember," "Good Old A Cappella," the Disco medley "Chickadow," "The Jim Croce Medley" (with great impressions, from Neil Diamond to Kermit the Frog), CSN&Y's"Seven Bridges Road," "Kosher Ham," "Scream," the hilarious "Home Depot Song," and "True Companion." Ron's act is unique in the a cappella world, as far as we know, and the man has few peers as an arranger, performer, singer, impressionist and comedian. "Solo Effort" is a rich, funny CD that makes us appreciate what we saw live all the more.

Songlist: Oh What A Night (December 1963), A Day In the Life, Good Old A Cappella, Chickadow, The Jim Croce Medley, The Impressions Medley, Seven Bridges Road, Kosher Ham, Scream, The Home Depot Song, True Companion

Wise Guys : Wise Guys : 00  1 CD

Wise Guys : Wise Guys

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
