Format: Audio CD
The mid-60s brought a glorious resurgence of the sort of vocal harmonies that had dominated doo-wop in the '50s. In addition to British acts like The Rockin' Berries, Fortunes, Ivy League and Tremeloes, American groups like The Tokens, Happenings and The Vogues all found their way onto the upper reaches of the charts. The Pennsylvania-based Vogues actually came together in the doo-wop era, and recorded a few non-charting singles as the Val-Aires before finding commercial success.

Sticking together into the middle-60s, the group found success with a Petula Clark song that hadn't been released as a U.S. single. Their 1965 rendition of "You're the One," recorded for the indie Blue Star label, and redistributed nationally by Co & Ce, hit #4 on the Billboard chart and gained the top spot in many local markets. The arrangement opens with a light rock intro before surging perfectly into the wailing vocal chorus. The follow-up single "Five O'Clock World" is even more memorable, with folk-rock guitars complemented by powerful vocal yelps and yodels. The story of a working man's daily grind is in league with Brill Building classics like "Up on the Roof," and still resonates today.

The Vogues continued to find chart action in 1966 with the Brill Building's own Barry Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil via their big city "Magic Town" (oddly, initially issued as a B-side) and the wishful "The Land of Milk and Honey." The former is sung with more traditional harmony backing while the latter includes another great round of percussive and wailing vocalizations. By the end of the year the group's singles, including the romantic "Please Mr. Sun" and the bubblegum-soul "That's the Tune" were charting lower and lower.

There is not one original Vogue member on this CD. If you actually want the originals, don't buy this CD.

I have owned this CD for a few years and I have played it many times. It brings back great memories.
The "standards" are wonderful, but the previously unreleased songs, especially That's the Tune, make this CD a real must-have for all of us who first fell in love in the mid 60's.
I created a "Love CD" for my wife as a surprise gift a few years ago. It includes two songs from this CD; You're the One and That's the Tune. I also included My Special Angel from the Greatest Hits CD. The lead singer danced with my wife as he sang My Special Angel to her at a party at the University Club in Pittsburgh in 1975. That was really a special moment for her.

I have had the pleasure of meeting The Vogues when I lived in Palm Bay, Florida. I brought along my old LP and a couple 45's that they were happy to autograph. I am very pleased with this Cd, The Best of The Vogues". If you liked their songs too, this CD is a must.
