Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight

Music by Calvin Carter and "Pookie" Hudson

Originally Performed by The Spaniels

t was originally recorded by the R&B doo-wop group The Spaniels in 1954. The original version peaked at number five on the R&B Best Sellers chart. The best-selling version of the song was recorded by the McGuire Sisters in 1954 It was also recorded in 1954 by country music duo Johnnie & Jack. The song should not be confused with a completely different, of the same name, from the 1930s, sung by Rudy Vallée, among others. The Spaniels' song has the sub-title "it's time to go" and the now famous doo-wop bass line intro. The bass line was not, however, included in the McGuire Sisters' cover version, made to sell to white audiences.

Various Arrangers : Doo Wop Barbershop

What a fascinating blend of two great uniquely American styles of vocal harmony! 'Silhouettes' was a hit single by the Rays in 1957. Tom Gentry's arrangement is an audience pleaser that can incorporate visual enhancements such as sunglasses, leather jackets, and choreography. Be sure to let the 'doo-wop' swing feeling be natural and unrushed, when the audience can understand the humor of the story on the text 'you're on the wrong block.' Feel free to experiment with the smoothness of the bass line by having the section sing on an open vowel such as 'du' rather than 'dm.' "Under the Boardwalk." has become one of the most recognized popular songs ever recorded. Allow the syncopated rhythms to sound free and agile while maintaining a god connected flow to the singing. These songs will add a cool touch of nostalgia to your repertoire and are surefire audience pleasers.

Songlist: Under the Boardwalk, Silhouettes, Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight, Crazy Little Thing Called Love

4 Ever Young : Classic A Cappella Doo Wop

Founded in 1997, all-male Doo Wop quartet 4 Ever Young, from the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex, is the brainchild of Bruce Smith, who set out to assemble an a cappella Doo-Wop group to help keep alive the music he used to sing on the streets of Brooklyn, NY, and perform with the Deacons and the Montclairs in the 50s and 60s. 16 Doo-Wop standards, "Barbara Ann," "So Much In Love, "Sunday Kind of Love," Book of Love," "Blue Moon," "At My Front Door," "409," "In the Still of the Night," "Monster Mash," "Charlie Brown" ...you get the idea. There's also a pretty cool cover of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" as a Doo-Wop song. These guys are smooth as silk, professional, authentic and spot on key-one of the best Doo-Wop CDs we've heard this year!

Songlist: Intro, Barbara Ann, So Much Love, Sunday Kind of Love, Book of Love, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Blue Moon, At My Front Door, When We Got Married, Nag, 409, In The Still Of The Night, Monster Mash, Charlie Brown, Forever Young, Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight

Alley Cats : Cat's Meow

The enthusiasm of the Alley Cats is so infectious and their energy so buoyant that they can make you like any song they sing. It's true! Having gotten their start at Disneyland's 'Magic Kingdom,' they exhibit a merry disposition that bursts through even on CD-they cannot be contained! A host of classic tunes such as 'Book Of Love,' 'Don't Be Cruel' and 'Duke Of Earl,' which could be perfunctory in lesser hands, are pounced on by the Alley Cats, and are the better for it. The arrangements are familiar but with a little added pizazz (we'd encourage more!), the intonation crisp, the rhythms fluid. A highly professional and entertaining recording.

Songlist: Rama Lama Ding Dong, Sh-Boom, Come Go With Me, Sixty Minute Man, At The Hop, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, Book Of Love, Duke Of Earl, Little Darlin', In The Still Of The Night, Don't Be Cruel, Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight, Alley Cat Tag

Alley Cats : The Doo Wop Drive-in Live

While entertaining thousands as Disneyland's house band, (and performing a killer "Showcase Concert" at the West Coast Summit), the four-man Alley Cats, "America's Premier Doo-Wop Group," released three great studio recordings and gained many fans in concert. "Drive-In" puts us in the audience of an electric, hilarious live performance, at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center in 2003. 19 songs, like "Sh Boom," The Temptations' "My Girl," Del Shannon's "Runaround Sue," "La Bamba," "Sixteen Candles," "Don't Be Cruel," "Poison Ivy," "Stand By Me" and more. But the big fun of the Alley Cats' stage act is more than just top-drawer Doo-Wop--these guys are stone entertainers whose patter and interactions with the audience (and a great Neil Diamond impersonation) are a scream. "America's Premier Doo-Wop Group?" We'll buy that!

Songlist: Intro - Our Friend Lee Marshall, At the Hop / Jump Jive and Wail, Come Go With Me, I Wonder Why, What's Your Name, Sh Boom, Rockin' Robin, My Girl, Little Bitty Pretty One, Runaround Sue, La Bamba, Sixteen Candles, Don't Be Cruel, Poison Ivy, Stand By Me, Book of Love, Get A Job, Rama Lama Ding Dong, Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight

Cantabile - The London Quartet : In Cambridge : 00  1 CD

Cantabile - The London Quartet : In Cambridge

Recorded live in - you guessed it - in Cambridge, this male quintet is a stylistic whisper away from the King's Singers, both in terms of sound and choice of material, though the influence of the Swingles can be felt as well ("The History of Western Music"). The selections on this CD encompass several centuries, beginning with William Byrd's "Deo Gratias." Embracing the British folk ballad (Morley and Henry the VIII), and the European classical form (Chopin), the group then travels forward in time to include period classics such as "Sentimental Journey" and "The Lambeth Walk," finishing up with the wholly appropos doo wop closer, "Goodnight Sweetheart Goodnight."

Songlist: Deo Gratis, Fire, Fire my Heart, Weep, O Mine Eyes, Now is the Month of Maying, Myfanwy, The Wee Cooper O'Fife, Pastime With Good Company, The Minute Waltz, Java Jive, Mein Kleiner, Gruner Kaktus, The History Of Western Music, Are You Lonesome Tonight?, Sentimental Journey, A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square, The Lambeth Walk, Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight

Cantabile - The London Quartet : Madrigal to McCartney

"Madrigal" was recorded at Victoria Memorial Hall in Singapore in February 2001, and features 15 tunes, ranging from sacred early Christian music like Weelkes' "Hark, all ye lovely Saints above," Passereau's "Il est bel et bon," and Wm. Byrd's "Agnus Dei" to a wonderful "Tribute to the Beatles" medley of 18 Fab Four classics and "Yesterday," to Gershwin's "Summertime," Rodgers and Hart's "My Romance" and Sinatra's "Strangers in the Night." Two bonus tracks include Richard Rodney Bennett's "A Good Night," commissioned by Paul McCartney from "A Garland for Linda," and "Brahm's Lullaby." Certainly an odd repertoire mix, but Cantabile's perfectly pitched, fresh, joyous sound works well with just about anything they choose to perform.

Songlist: Hark, all ye lovely Saints above , Comment, amour, me veux-tu tourmenter? , Il est bel et bon , Agnus Dei (from the Mass of Four Voices) , A Tribute ot the Beatles , The Compleat Works , The Long Day Closes , Summertime , My Romance , Are You Lonesome Tonight? , Strangers in the Night , Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight, Yesterday , A Good-Night, Brahms' Lullaby

'Hotter than a drive-in on a July night, smoother than a pocketful of jello... Here are The Fabulous Delacardos' That's what it says right here on the notes!We've never had a pocket full of jello, ourselves. In 1981 for a 20th class reunion of one of the members, the five men and one woman decided to recreate the music they loved as they grew up. They sing a New York style with a distinctly southern twist for they are from Tennessee. As an aside, the fine woman's voice you will hear belongs to Christy Little who ran for a Juvenile Court Judge in 1998.The 28 tunes are those that any one who went to high school in the late fifties or early sixties will have to remember fondly, or else turn in your Baby Boomer ID.

Flamingos : Best Of Flamingos : 00  1 CD : 70967

Flamingos : Best Of Flamingos

The Flamingos are in the elite of vocal harmony groups, considered by some to be one of the best; they emerged from the 1940's jazz idiom, and though they were certainly influenced by their precursors the Five Keys, Orioles etc., they were intent upon forging their own unique sound. From the Chicago neighborhood to the local black Jewish 'Church of God and Saints,' where they lived, worshipped and hung out, the young conglomeration practiced and performed (changing lead singers on the way) and subsequently were able to secure a deal with Chance Records. This was the first of many labels, including Parrot, Checker, Decca and End, for whom the group recorded, and certainly the Flamingos suffered through as much ignominy as any group could: non-payment of royalties, original compositions attributed to other writers, litigation, and the 'cover' phenomena, whereby a white artist would record a hit by a black group, and make off with the sales. (Pat Boone was a notorious raider.) Nonetheless, history was kinder, and the Flamingos have since been recognized as the innovators they are.

Songlist: That's My Desire, Golden Teardrops, Jump Children, Dream Of A Lifetime, Ko Ko Mo, I'll Be Home, A Kiss From Your Lips, The Vow, The Ladder Of Love , Lovers Never Say Goodbye, I Only Have Eyes For You, Mio Amore , Nobody Loves Me Like You, Your Other Love, If I Can't Have You, Love Walked In, Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight, This Was

"Pure" is introduced by radio personality Bobby Jay, who gives us interesting info about each song before each song, as if he was doing a radio show. There are 14 tasty cuts here, the title tune, then a Doo-Wop "best-of,"The Valentines' "Don't Say Goodnight," The Eldorados' "I'll Be Forever Loving You," The Flamingos' "I'll Be Home," The Heartbeats' "You're A Thousand Miles Away," The Penguins' "Earth Angel"/The Clovers' "Devil or Angel" medley, the Hi-Lo's arrangement of "Georgia," "I Only Have Eyes For You," the a cappella anthem "Goodnight, Sweetheart"-this is some of the best, most authentic a cappella Doo-Wop we've heard, by one of the premier groups-it doesn't get any better than this!

MC6 : Doo Wop A Cappella

Jackson, Paul, Kim, Joe, Gary, Dan and Rick have at least two things in common: they're all wonderful Doo-Wop singers, and they're earning a lot of fans in Arizona! "Burgers, Shakes Doo-Wop," contains 16 pretty straightforward covers of Doo-Wop standards like Bob Gaudio's "Sherry," Brian Wilson's "Little Deuce Coupe," Fred Parris' "In the Still of the Night," Hart & Rodgers' "Blue Moon," "The Lion Sleeps Tonight..." this album might have been called "Greatest Doo-Wop Hits of All Time!" These 7 guys (MC6 plus 1?) absolutely nail every song, and the additional voices add more richness and depth to the harmonies. Other favorites are "Up on the Roof" and "One Fine Day" by Carole King and Gerry Goffin; "Runaround Sue" by Ernie Maresca and Dion Dimucci, Al Yankovic's very silly "Since You've Been Gone," Del Shannon's "I Go to Pieces," Billy Joel's "The Longest Time" and the album closes with Harmony Sweeps audience favorite "Goodnight Sweetheart" by James Hudson and Calvin Carter. MC6 clearly loves Doo-Wop and entertaining us, and, like the burgers and shakes we remember, it's all big fun and delicious!

McGuire Sisters : Greatest Hits

The three sisters McGuire indeed have a unity of blend hard to match among the many famous sibling groups. Their popularity was immense, and their cover versions of songs such as "Sincerely" and "Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight," (both originally sung by the Moonglows and Spaniels, respectively) placed higher on the charts than those of their progenitors; the McGuire's sound and image was considered more acceptable to white audiences. While some of the songs, like "He," don't hold up as well over time - the lyrics and orchestrations seem a bit precious - the vivacious delivery is so unabashed, the apparently innate tunefulness so exact, and the arrangements so creative that "Muskrat Ramble" and "Sugartime" leave no doubt as to why the McGuires were loved by so many.

The Voiceworks books (complete with CDs) are packed with songs and ideas which are practical, motivating, and accessible. Voiceworks 2 is a complete guide and support for anyone who encourages or teaches other people to sing well. Singing is learned behaviour, and Voiceworks 2 aims to help singers of all ages and experience improve their capability, to develop some techniques, and get pleasure from using their voices. It is claimed that the better people feel about their voices, the better they feel about themselves, so this book is more influential than just a singing book. The music is eclectic, chosen for its accessibility, and can be used progressively as laid out in the book to build confidence and develop vocal technique, or as a 'dip in' resource to suit particular needs.

Sounds Familiar : Sounds Familiar

Sounds Familiar is exactly that: a selection of familiar favorites of decades past. These four ladies with soothing voices from all the way across the Atlantic have poured their hearts into these arrangements, stylizing with hooks and smooth changes, dynamic crescendo movement and impeccable rhythm. "Rock-a-Bye Your Baby With A Dixie Melody" and "The Lady Is A Tramp" are two songs that are never tiresome! Track 7, "Little Bit More" is a fantastic song and incredibly well sung! "Orange Colored Sky", is very clever, but don't let it startle you! Make sure you listen to this CD all the way through!
