"The Kirby Stone Four,four messengers sent before Pop music and Rock music was even born to give notice to everyone of the approach of Pop music and Rock music to others.These 4 guys and gals never knew it at the time but they were one of the first Pop/Rock bands of the 1950's.They took the song,"Baubles,Bangles and Beads" to number 30 on the hits chart in 1958.However due to radio station politics at the time,this song was probably shunned from the airwaves on many radio stations because of its "different" sound and should have climbed higher on the charts.I honestly believe if this song was re-released by the KS4 today it would climb to number 1 on the Pop charts...the song is that good and sounds even better today than it did back in 1958.The lyrics,"Ring jing a ling,ring jing a ling will be in your head all day after you listen to this song in stereo.The women who sang on this album received no credit but they too are members of The Kirby Stone Four,along with the Four members of KS4 and sound super!The rest of the songs on this CD are also in stereo and sound fantastic."Zing!Went the strings on my heart" and "Whispering" also stand out as great tunes.Little is known about the The Kirby Stone Four and the gals who sang with them.Most Pop and Rock music fans have never heard of The Kirby Stone Four.Don't know if they are in the Rock Hall of Fame and Playboy Music Hall of Fame but if they are not, shame on those who never voted them in.They richly deserve to be in the Music Hall of Fame.Buy their CD's and you will hear what the first Rock and Pop music band sounded like :-)"
