Cat No: NOT2CD781


It is impossible to mention every group on this 2CD compilation,
which acts almost like a history of the genre from the 1930s
through to the close of the ’50s. Including the legendary
Flamingos, one of the all-time great vocal groups; or the Four
Aces, consistent hit-makers during the early ’50s; the Mills
Brothers one of the earliest vocal units on display here and The
Ink Spots, who first recorded in 1935, who were probably the
Brothers’ biggest rivals during the ’30s and ’40s. Songs by the
Everly Brothers, the Platters and the Chordettes make this
collection a must-have for fans of the genre.
