Powerful mix of pop vocals and big band sound

"During a glorious four-year run from 1965 through 1968, this unusual quartet took a sound too mellow for rock and too rich and flamboyant for pop and repeatedly pushed deep into the top forty, four times making the top ten.The Vogues used a proven formula of updating vocal standards from the late 50s, successfully covering and in many way improving upon classics like "My Special Angel", "'Til", "Earth Angel" and "Moments to Remember."Beyond the best known trio of "Turn Around, Look At Me", "You're the One" and "Five O'Clock World", this Rhino collection features marvelous second tier hits that are staggering in their intricate harmonies and lyrical beauty. "Magic Town", "Land of Milk and Honey" "Woman Helping Man" and the emotional "Please, Mr Sun" are all far better than your chart positions would indicate. There are even a number of songs here that didn't make the top 100, but prove that making the chart isn't anything. Listen to the moving "That's No Way to Say Goodbye" for proof that good material didn't always mean commercial success.As with any Rhino collection, the sound on this disc is superb. The vocals and accompaniments are crystal clear and distinctly separate, with none of the muddiness found on so many remasters of mid and late-60s music.This is the kind of music that makes you want to light the fire, turn off the lights and sit on the sofa with that special someone. Like the song says, you won't like this collection; "No, Not Much!""
Great Hits from the REAL Vogues

"This appears to be an album from the original and true Vogues not the fake group that runs around the country today pretending to be the guys who actually created all the hits (beware: the phony group tries to sell most of the same songs on their website and elsewhere).
Whether hitting it big with an original song like 5 O'Clock World or remaking a classic like Special Angel, Chuck Blasko and group could harmonize with the best of them. They still do, at least in Western Pennsylvania, which is the only place they are allowed to use the name Vogues while the thieves who stole the name through legal maneuvering claim to be the original everywhere else.
Regardless, all the hits are here including the ones mentioned above and other classics like Turn Around Look At Me, Magic Town, You're the One, and Earth Angel.
Whether remaking classics or creating their own hits, the Vogues are truly an original group and this is a fine collection."
I always was a sucker for great harmony

"Back in 1968, when I was 17 years old, most of my contemporaries were into music by people like Jimi Hendrix, Cream and the Rolling Stones. While I enjoyed all kinds of music, my preference during that time was for much tamer music. In the summer of that year, The Vogues released "Turn Around, Look At Me" a remake of a relatively obscure Glen Campbell tune from several years earlier. I immediately fell in love with the song and the group. The Vogues had been around for awhile, having achieved significant chart success on Pittsburgh's Co&Ce label with songs like "You're The One", "Five O'Clock World" and "The Land of Milk and Honey". But this sound was different. Fifties rocker Ernie Freeman had become the producer/arranger for the group. His combination of lush production values and impeccable harmonies produced an incredibly pleasing sound that proved wildly successful. "Turn Around" was a huge hit for the group and was followed in swift succession by remakes of "My Special Angel", "Earth Angel", "Till", "Moments to Remember", "Green Fields" and others. I bought every one of these singles. In fact, I enjoyed the Vogues so much that I used to even play the flip sides frequently.
This collection from Rhino contains all of the Vogues singles from both the early Co&Ce years and the Reprise years. There is not a bad track on the disc! It is an absolute joy to listen to and I never get tired of hearing these songs. I realize that some people might find the material a bit too tame, but those who dig great harmony are sure to enjoy this fine collection. A big thumbs up!!!"
