An album of Barber Shop Quartet tracks featuring well-known songs from the 1890's.
This album was originally released on the budget label Gramophone, with the cover featured in the video. The recordings come from a Halo release, however, I felt that original cover best reflects the contents of the album.
The album features recordings of a very tight and skilled quartet, which keeps the album interesting. There a soloist track (by Jan Peerce), which has had a heavy amount of reverb added to try and make it sound more like a quartet. It didn't do the trick, and the last track is echoey.
Regardless, this album is very entertaining and will be well worth your time.
