Format: Audio CD
Some of you may remember the Hillside Singer's most famous hit "I'D Like To Teach The World To Sing", either as a hit that this group had, or the song that Coca Cola made famous as one of it's more lengdary jingles. As a Coke spot this song was used as a message of world peace both during the balance of the year and with a special commercial during the Chrristmas Season (all this world peace and no Miss America, go figure).

BUT, this vocal group could do much more. Many may connect folk songs with the 60's, but this genre continued through the early to mid 70's as well. Besides the title track, songs like The Night They Drove Ol' Dixie Down, and Kum Ba Ya allow their tight harmonies and emotions to shine.

Another intersting side note is the song "Were Together", this track wound up becoming one of McDonald's best known theme songs from the early 70's, and needless to say paired well with their most famous song beng a Coke jingle.

An important side note is that another group, The New Seekers, also recorded, "I'D Like To Teach The World To Sing" during the same time, AND also charted a hit with it, BUT, the most beloved version of this tracj, was the Hillside Singers version, an original NOT a copy.

I enjoy listening to the music on this CD. Some are very familiar and some not, but they are inspiring for me and help to brighten my day.
