A four-man acapella group that qualifies as the premier veteran group of its kind still operating. Highly revered by fledgling acapella songsters, this quartet has purveyed the original 1950's New York street corner sound (black variety) of the creamiest quality right up to today. Their repertoire has always included gospel and there are several tracks here, including the Kurt Weill and Bertol Brecht strange but fascinating "Oh, Heavenly Salvation". Probably the most enjoyable track though is a totally original working of the blues standard "Little Red Rooster". A great quartet of peerless harmonisers, presenting a very fine programme.
