Choice Voices! Pop Vocal Group Gems of the 50's

Choice Voices! Pop Vocal Group Gems of the 50's



Choice Voices! is a cross-licensed two-CD anthology of '50s hits (but not necessarily the biggest ones) by various vocal groups, and serves as both an excellent overview of the genre and a useful hit package for collectors since several of these tracks are scarce on CD. The 44 recordings cover a wide variety of styles, from relative old-timers such as the Mills Brothers to youth-oriented acts like the Play-Mates. The collection crosses over into folk and country territory with selections by the Weavers, the Kingston Trio, and the Browns, and tosses in a handful of pop-oriented tracks by R&B groups as well. Anyone who is interested in the great vocal groups and the many stripes of pop music they created in the '50s will find immense entertainment value in Choice Voices!
