Amazing voices, coming together beautifully – with no other instrumentation for accompaniment! The sound of the Singers Unlimited
was one of the brightest spots in the 70s catalog of MPS Records – a magical floating of male and female voices, all tied together with inventive arrangements by Gene Puerling (ex-HiLo's), and recorded perfectly in the best MPS mode – but on the three albums in this set, the group went even better – singing alone in the studio with only their own voices for rhythmic and melodic support – hitting notes, tones, and turns of phrases that are simply incredible. There's nothing hokey here, no sort of "retro acapella" mode – as in 70s doo wop revivals – and instead, the Singers
carve out a whole new space of their own – a world of sound made only from heavenly voices, but in a way that's hip enough to match the best FM easy styles of their generation. And amidst the heaven, there's also a bit of hell – as the group often have a darker sensibility when presenting their music – a sense of depth that pushes them far away from kitsch! 2CD set features all the tracks from their 3 A Capella albums – a total of 33 tracks that includes "Both Sides Now", "Here There & Everywhere", "Lullaby", "Emily", "Clair", "Yesterday", "My Romance", "Girl Talk", "Sweet Lorraine", "One More Time Chick Corea", "Anything Goes", "Indian Summer", "All The Things You Are", "I Don't Know Where I Stand", "I Wish You Love", and "Lost In The Stars".
