Sincerely

Music by Harvey Fuqua and Alan Freed

Originally Performed by The McGuire Sisters

Originally recorded by Moonglows, the group of which Fuqua was a member and Freed was the manager. The Moonglows' version reached number 1 on the Billboard R&B chart and number 20 on the Billboard Juke Box chart.[2] After it became known that Freed often insisted on songwriter credits for songs by bands he promoted (which partially led to his downfall in a payola investigation years later), Fuqua noted that Freed had in fact contributed to the songwriting for "Sincerely," and thus his claim to a songwriting credit in this case was legitimate. The best-selling version was a pop cover recorded by the McGuire Sisters, which entered the charts in 1954 and reached number one the next year. It was eventually certified as a gold record.

A Moments Pleasure : A New Beginning : 00  1 CD

A Moments Pleasure : A New Beginning

Benny (Bird) Primetime Daniels, John Farrington, John Jones, Bill Keith and James (J.P.) Phillips are A Moment's Pleasure, and they sing polished, smooth, deep-bassed, close-harmony a cappella street corner doo-wop. Formed in 1982, all the group members have paid their dues (dues-wop?) big time, and it shows. 15 classic songs, from 'What's Your Name,' 'Farewell My Love,' 'Sitting In the Park' and 'Save the Last Dance for Me,' to 'Come Go with Me,' 'So Fine,' 'Sincerely' and 'Don't Leave Me Baby' - it's all great doo-wop with more of a 60s flavor without losing the vintage R&B 1950's sound!

Songlist: What's Your Name?, Could This Be Magic, Farewell My Love, Sitting in the Park, Talking To My Heart, Save The Last Dance For Me, While Walking, Lost Love, Come Go With Me, So Fine, I Do, Sincerely, Peace Of Mind, Never Let Me Go, Don't Leave Me Baby

Andrews Sisters / McGuire Sisters : Sing The Big Hits - Back to Back

Certainly the two best-known and best-loved "sister" groups of the 1940s and 50s, the Andrews and McGuire Sisters just kept cranking out the top-40 hits. And what hits they were - what can you say about a song like "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," other than that they should have given the Andrews Sisters heavy gold medals for helping win World War II with it? And "Beat Me Daddy Eight to the Bar," one of the most quintessential and definitive songs of the Swing era. If you're looking for songs that define the glamorous, innocent romanticism of the 1950s, wouldn't the McGuire's "Sincerely," "Sugartime," "Something's Got to Give" and "May You Always" be at or near the top of your list? Ten hits (all band accompanied): "Well All Right (Tonight's the Night)," "Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen," "I'll Be With You In Apple Blossom Time," "Muskrat Ramble" - these songs were huge, and they're all here for you to remember and enjoy!

Delmonicos : Sing Love Ballads : 00  1 CD : 3012

Delmonicos : Sing Love Ballads

The Delmonicos were originally formed in Manhattan in 1959. In their early years they performed in clubs such as the Copacabana, Peppermint Lounge and Camelot. In 1963 they recorded a couple of 45's and enjoyed considerable local success singing in the style of the classic 1950's NYC groups. They reunited in 1986 to perform for the United In Group Harmony Association's 10th year celebration and have continued to perform since that reunion. The current lineup features three of the original members and, recently, a band to enhance their performance package. You will hear the unmistakable bass of Gary Knight and the original Mr. Delmonico himself, Joe Cariati, with his stunning leads and soaring falsettos. Take a journey back into the world of the Dubs, The Platters, The Spaniels, Flamingos and more!

Songlist: This to Me Is Love, Only You (And You Alone), Stardust, A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening, Soltaire, Last Night I Dreamed, The Vow, The Things I Love, Heaven on Earth, The Masquerade Is Over, There Is No Greater Love, Could This Be Magic, Beside My Love, Why Do You Have to Go, At Night, Sincerely, Is There a Love For Me, Embraceable You

Fabulous Delacardos : Flat Top, Sock Hop, Doo Wop

'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.

Songlist: One Fine Day, Sixteen Candles, I Go To Pieces, Stagger Lee, Love Potion #9, All I Have To Do Is Dream, Silhouettes, Dedicated To The One I Love, Sh-Boom, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, So In Love, Come Go With Me, Be My Baby, Blue Moon, Cab Driver, Runaround Sue, Rockin' Robin, The Wanderer, Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight, In The Still Of The Night, Hearbreak Hotel, What's Your Name, Sincerely, Sixteen Tons, Da Doo Ron Ron, Under the Boardwalk, Sea Of Love, Rock & Roll Is Here To Stay

Magic Touch : <span style="color:red;">Sincerely</span> - A Cappella Starlight Sessions Vol. 3 : 00  1 CD

Magic Touch : Sincerely - A Cappella Starlight Sessions Vol. 3

There are some doo-wop groups from whom the clean, smooth, crisp sound just seems to flow like a street corner water fountain, like it did with the original groups who burst onto the airwaves in the 1950s and 60s. The 5-man Magic Touch is one of those groups, and 'Sincerely' just goes to show how appealing and timeless the combination of great arranging, soaring harmonies and classic material can be. Some favorites: 'Ain't No Woman Like The One I Love,' 'Just My Imagination,' 'Rama Lama Ding Dong,' 'Twilight Time,' Bobby Darin's 'Dream Lover' (OK, we know it was a hit for Del Shannon), 'In The Still of the Night' and the title tune, but we have to say that these are 19 of the best doo-wop tunes we've ever heard!

Songlist: Tonight I Fell In Love, This Is My Love, Ain't No Woman (Like One I Got), I Was Such A Fool, No Says My Heart, Morse Code Of Love, Please Say You Want Me, So Much In Love, Just My Imagination, Rama Lama Ding Dong, Twilight Time, Sincerely, To Be Love (Forever), Rockin Robin, Dream Lover, Could This Be Magic, Heart Of Saturday Night, Any Day Now, In The Still Of The Night

The McGuire Sisters : Greatest Hits : 00  1 CD : 31341

The 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.

Songlist: Sincerely, Something's Gotta Give, HE, Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight, Picnic, Muskrat Ramble, Ev'ry Day Of My Life, Sugartime, It May Sound Silly, Christmas Alphabet, May You Always, Just For Old Time's Sake
