This is one of my favorite CDs, not only because it impresses on my high end audio system, but the songs are downright infectious. Don't be surprised to find yourself humming and snapping your fingers even after the music stops playing.
The song "Bop 'til You Drop" is here, and is definitely a fun time, dancin' classic. They also do justice a couple of 50's and 60's classics, "Silhouettes" and "Town Without Pity". Maybe it's the Irish in me, I do sometimes go for the sentimental and romantic stuff. "Up the Ladder to the Roof (so we can see heaven much better)" and "Please (Don't Go)" are truly things of beauty! If you want to get the definitive of this group, grab this one and Seamless. The only drawback is that back in the 80's, they were still doing only 45 minute albums.
I got this one one of my dollar raids, which is scraping up sandbag high walls of cheap vynal. Lots of interesting things unknown happen.
Now when you think accapela vocal groups you think mom and da.....well Christ, I guess in 2010 it is grandma and grandpa's music, but this is just not the case. Manhattan Transfer has done material like this, and even at the height of his psychedelic abstraction in 1970, Frank Zappa produced the Persuasions--none of these people are exactly exponents of conservative Goodfella's aural brill cream.
And do you catch the Zappa reference on this album from the 1990 Nylons. (Did he say something--Na!) And this is an early 1990s album in the buffered digital production. The structures on One Size Fits All are do-wop, but what I like about it is there is no falsetto siren, no idiot going "cry-i-i-oh-i" that dates some of the 1950s articles so badly. The vocals here are tight and straight, and the band works like a perfectly polished ball coming high noon at you.
