"You You You" has The Ames Brothers crooning their very best--and the backup chorus helps things along even though they never drown out the brothers! The melody is very pretty and I really like "You You You." "I Can't Believe That You're In Love With Me" puts The Ames Brothers squarely into the spotlight and that's where they belong! They sing and harmonize so flawlessly; this tune also has just the right tempo to make it a very special highlight of this album. Great! In addition, there's "The Naughty Lady Of Shady Lane;" this cute and peppy little tune shines bright when The Ames Brothers deliver it so well! This is a number I haven't heard before but it all works very well and it's quite nice.
"My Bonnie Lassie" is a sweet number that impresses me with its beauty; and when The Ames Brothers sing "My Love, Your Love" they make this brighter than any other artist ever could! The percussion is also used very well in "My Love, Your Love." Similarly, "It Only Hurts For A Little While" sparkles when The Ames Brothers give this their all; they sing this with all their hearts and souls; and this amazes me a lot. "Summer Sweetheart" is another very pretty number that features The Ames Brothers singing to perfection with a great musical arrangement and there's another highlight when The Ames Brothers sing "The Game Of Love." "The Game Of Love" is quite a tune and I really like it very much.Read more ›

special anniversary - memories of a first date
at a club where the Ames Brothers sang the song
You You You.
Taragon has done an excellent job in reproducing these tracks considering the vintage of some of the early sides. The first eleven tracks from the early and mid-50's are in mono. Tracks 12 through 18 are in full-sounding, albeit primitive binaural stereo. The last two, 19 and 20, are in full three-track stereo.
From the more innocent age of 50's pop, this is fun listening all around. If you're an Ed Ames fan, Taragon also has a superb compilation of his solo work (which see).
