In the early 1950's, before the dawn of rock and roll, vocal groups were all the rage. This was certainly the case in black communities across America where one could find vocal groups performing on almost every street corner. To a somewhat lesser extent this phenomenon also existed in white America. It was certainly quite apparent on radio and television especially during the first half of the decade. Of all of the popular white vocal groups of that era, I would have to say that my favorite was probably the Four Aces. "The Best of The Four Aces" was released in England in 2001. This collection offers a fine overview of the groups body of work from the fabulous fifies. During that decade the group hit the Billboard pop charts a total of 44 times and 10 of the tunes made it into the Top Ten. Just about everyone should be familiar with the groups most popular songs. "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing" from 1956 made it all the way to the top of the charts and remained there for 6 big weeks. Some years earlier in 1951, "Tell Me Why", a tune co-written by lead singer Al Alberts spent 24 weeks on the charts and peaked at #2. And who can forget other great hits like "Three Coins In The Fountain", "Heart and Soul" and my all time favorite Aces tune "The Gang That Sang 'Heart of My Heart'". That one makes me yearn for the elusive "good old days". All of these big hits are included among the 18 tracks on this disc. I opted for this import disc over MCA's American release "The Four Aces Greatest Hits" because it features 2 tunes not included in that compilation. "Friendly Persuasion (Thee I Love)" and "The World Outside" are terrific songs and very hard to come by. Read more ›

Saw the Four Aces at the Follies in Palm Springs--just had to get the CD--have had many enjoyable hours listening to their great sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better, not best November 8, 2001
Format:Audio CD
As one of the most popular vocal groups of the 50's, the Four Aces landed dozens of tunes in the top 100, several in the top 10 and left their mark with their biggest success, "Love Is A Many-Spendored Thing" in 1955. Many of their biggest hits are included in this 18-track compilation done by the U.K. Spectrum subsidiary of Universal Music. While hardly comprehensive, it does provide a decent quality overview of the Four Lads recording career. While there are other Four Lads compilation CD's that may surpass than this one, this does contain some tracks not found elsewhere, one being "The World Outside" from 1958, their biggest hit after the departure of lead singer Al Alberts.

Sound quality is reasonably good with all tracks in mono except the aforementioned "...World...", (track 16) which appears in stereo. Liner notes are brief with two pages of musical background information within a four-page booklet.

This piece stands alone well as a reasonably priced overview of the Four Aces work or, for the completist, it adds a few tunes not found elsewhere to a Four Aces fan's collection.
