"What a find! I've always been a great fan of The Four Lads, whom I consider the best male group ever. With voices that blend beautifully in 4 part harmony, they can tackle most any song and make it their own. For example, their rendition of Frank Loesser's "Standing on the Corner" (not on this CD) is the best available in my opinion. This release, "Four On the Aisle", is further testament to their collective talents. The 22 tracks contained on this disc are from the Broadway shows "Kiss Me Kate", "Babes in Arms", & "Annie Get Your Gun". Each song rendition is a revelation, although many of these tunes are rather brief and usually last no more than 2 minutes. The sound quality (originally from a 1959 Columbia recording) is truly outstanding. My only minor quibble is the incorrect pronunciation the boys use with the word "wind" (which should be pronounced like wind as in "wind-up toy") in the song "Where Is The Life That I Led?" I anxiously await their Frank Loesser disc to be released in Jan 2001. If you're a Four Lads fan, buy this disc ASAP."
