Product Notes

A consistent feature of the pop charts during the early 1950s was the popularity of vocal groups, ideally suited to the easy-going style of the time, and providing a ready vehicle for the songs regularly emerging from the Tin Pan Alley production line. One of the most popular of the vocal quartets of that time were The Four Aces, a group of ex-US Navy personnel from Philadelphia, who scored a million-selling hit with their first record, released on their lead singer Al Alberts' own label because they couldn't get a deal. Signed to Decca, they racked up around fifty hits over the next decade in the Billboard, Cash Box and UK charts - they achieved significant success in the UK charts, with several Top 10 hits - before rock 'n' roll and it's aftermath overtook them and the group broke up not long after Al Alberts left in the late '50s. This great-value 52-track 2-CD set comprises all of those hits, plus a few bonus A sides which were popular airplay records. It naturally includes all of their landmark No. 1 hits "It's No Sin", "Stranger in Paradise", "Three Coins in the Fountain", "Mister Sandman", "Melody Of Love" and "Love Is a Many Splendored Thing", and many other memorable classics. It's a thorough overview of their chart career, capturing both the essence of their distinctive appeal and the nostalgic musical zeitgeist of the era
