All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
A doo wop vocal group from the Pittsburgh area, the Vogues started well in the mid-'60s with "You're the One," an infectious bit of folk-rock with enough of a British Invasion feel to earn it heavy play on AM radio. "Five O'Clock World" was an even better single, a two-minute blast of timeless release, chronicling the feel of getting off work with the whole night still ahead, that one instant when everything is a possibility and the future has not yet arrived with its schedule of deadlines and pressures. Few pop songs have ever caught that moment with more élan or conviction. Unfortunately "Five O'Clock World" was to be a high-water mark for the Vogues, and although they ...

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
A doo wop vocal group from the Pittsburgh area, the Vogues started well in the mid-'60s with "You're the One," an infectious bit of folk-rock with enough of a British Invasion feel to earn it heavy play on AM radio. "Five O'Clock World" was an even better single, a two-minute blast of timeless release, chronicling the feel of getting off work with the whole night still ahead, that one instant when everything is a possibility and the future has not yet arrived with its schedule of deadlines and pressures. Few pop songs have ever caught that moment with more élan or conviction. Unfortunately "Five O'Clock World" was to be a high-water mark for the Vogues, and although they enjoyed more chart success during the 1960s, particularly with their biggest seller, the ultraromantic "No, Not Much," they never really built a distinctive body of work. This set from Rhino combines their early singles for Co & Ce Records with the later work from Warner Brothers Records in an effective overview of the band's history. It's the best single disc of the Vogues out there, and really has everything you need, including that little miracle of a song, "Five O'Clock World."

    The Recording Years "Vogues" Tunes

    If you love all the 60's/70's Reprise singles and a few CO & CE singles from the recording years Vogues then this CD is for you. 18 classic tracks of wonderful music from the originals Bill Burkette, Hugh Geyer, Chuck Blasko and Don Miller. Beware of bogus Vogues recordings out there today.

    Greatest Hits

    This group has the puriest harmony of any group in the last 40 odd years. I am a Doo Wop fan and love 60's harmony but the blend of these 4 guys is the richest blend of any voices I have heard. You will enjoy all the songs in the CD. Don't be fooled by impostors calling themselves "The Vogues". Bill Burkett-lead baritone, Chuck Blasko-baritone, Hugh Geyer-lead tenor, Don Miller-tenor are the "Original Vogues".

    Greatest Hits

    I have several of their albuns but this CD is by far the best combination of sound and songs. The blend of each members voice creates a very special sound that no one can duplicate. I guarantee you will enjoyed each song.
