Coats : Collection : 00  1 CD

Coats : Collection

The Coats have shown remarkable consistency and longevity, having recorded five albums since their formation in 1987. With few personnel changes, and a focus on original music, it's clear that their 1994 Harmony Sweepstakes win was no fluke, but a reflection of their talent and professionalism. "Collection" includes 15 tracks, two of which are new: the Jeff Lynne/ELO cover "Don't Bring Me Down," and "Open Up," a cheerful harmony-driven ditty with simple accompaniment, (reflecting the Coats' trend toward more frequent use of instruments). Some Coats fans feel that the quartet's true calling remains a cappella, however. Songs such as their trademark version of "Rawhide," "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "Cool For You" (the live version, where the screaming of the audience proves that the Coats are undisputed chick magnets), confirm that the Coats' grasp of pop harmony is nothing if not compelling.

Songlist: Don't Bring Me Down, We Regret, Keep It Simple, A Cappella, Rawhide, Cool For You, Your Joy, Open Up, Dance Alone, Now You're Gone, I Can See Clearly Now, Nice To Say, Come Together, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Joy To The World

Essentials : Nothing But Blue : 00  1 CD

Essentials : Nothing But Blue

Dan, Thom, Janet and Joe (he spells it Jo3) are the London, Ontario-based mixed voice Contemporary a cappella group The Essentials, contains a faux "Parental Advisory" on the back of the cardboard jewel box sleeve for "Acappella Content," warning that it contains only human voices and drums, but "it still sounds so full that you'll think there's a whole band playing." Continuing, it adds: "Lyrics are suitable for all ages"-whew! We hope no parents will be scared off from enjoying this excellent collection by the warning, and conversely, that those in search of questionable lyrics will at least enjoy some great a cappella covers! Our favorites among the 12 songs include the a laid back arrangement of the Reggae anthem "I Can See Clearly Now," the Edgar Winter Group's "Free Ride," The Doobie Brothers' "Takin' It to the Streets," Tim McGraw's poignant Country hit "Some Things Never Change," Stephen Stills' Buffalo Springfield and CSN&Y hit, "Love The One You're With," a soulful, funky cover of Dave Mason's hit for Joe Cocker, "Feelin' Alright," the Rockapella standard "Falling Over You," and a live recording of Ray Gillen's Badlands Gospel hit, "In A Dream." Lead duties are shared among the four, and each shows off their serious talents as the others provide rich, sumptuous background vocals. Add some marvelous arrangements and you have "Nothing But Blue," the debut winner from The Essentials! Extensive liner notes with all the lyrics.

Songlist: I Can See Clearly Now, Free Ride, You and I, Invisible, Floating Away, Takin' It To The Streets, Some Things Never Change, Reality, Love The One You're With, Falling Over You, Feelin' Alright, In A Dream

Shakapella : Shakapella : 00  1 CD

Shakapella : Shakapella    onsale

Put on your Hawaiian threads and prepare to get lei'd because Shakapella has arrived to the main 48. Shaka is island slang meaning "be cool", "take it easy ", and of course "hang loose". Not too hard to figure out the mission of this vocal sensation. Most of the guys met while singing with the Sounds of Aloha Chorus and the other guys were in the right bar at the right time. Rich harmonies, vocal excellence and a cool attitude make this debut a delicious one. "Move those hips a little with "Shakapella Groove" and "Shaka The Moon". Can you guess which song "Honolulu Girls" parodies? "The Way You Make Me Feel", "I Can See Clearly Now", "Sixty Minute Man" and "Down On The Corner" are all familiar tunes with a local flavor. No pitch pipe needed here, cuz these guys are right on key.

Songlist: Shakapella Groove, Shaka the Moon, The Way You Make Me Feel, God Must Have Spent A Little More Time On You, Honolulu Girls, I Can See Clearly Now, Sixty Minute Man, Gone, Under the Boardwalk, Down on the Corner, I'll Hear Your Voice
