"The Four Freshmen have inspired, and been the mainstay of excellent 4 part harmony for over 40 years. Not only is their " sound" totally recognizable...but it never grows "old".Freshmas! offers Bob Flanigan...and his fantastic trombone..to the public who just can't get enough of this incredible sound. The horn section "cooks" and the guys' Chops are still smokin'!One track, "I'll BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS", offers everything that you expect in TRUE Freshmen tradition. I have listened to it many times, and the thing flows..........and will make you smile, and mabye cry.On the "quiet" side..the a capella songs will take you right into "Freshman Heaven".No avid Freshman Music collector will have the TRUE EXPLANATION POINT of the Last original Freshmen (with Flanigan) albums, if they don't have it in their collection!!"
Should have done this back in their heyday...

""We Three Kings"--alone--it's worth the price of the CD. It's PURE Freshman alternating with a quietly beautiful brass ensemble interlude. "Noel" and "Away in a Manger," too, sound so great, you'd think these were '60s tracks found in the vaults. None of the campy "Donnie and Marie" type soft rock beats heard on most of the other tracks; none of that fake strings sound of that lame '70s ARP String Ensemble synthesizer (that I guess Ranwood dug outta the attic for several tracks, sheesh). Trombone work, however, is outstanding and reminiscent of their classic "...and Five Trombones" date.
Alas, the sun was setting on a great run, kinda embarrassingly on tracks like "Jingle Bells"--their signature magic just isn't there. But I am happy they left us a few TRUE Freshman Christmas tracks."
