The Four Lads: Singles Collection 1952-62
Title: Singles Collection 1952-62
Label: Acrobat

The Four Lads were one of several male vocal quartets who enjoyed their heyday in the early years of the 1950s which some nostalgia buffs regard as the golden age of popular music before rock 'n' roll changed the pop landscape for ever. The Canadian quartet began their careers singing at the same Toronto church as members of The Crew Cuts, and originally came to the fore providing vocal back-up for Johnnie ray on his landmark hit "Cry" as well as several later hits. They forged a hit career for themselves in their own right, recording for Columbia, scoring their first hits in 1952, and going on to achieve more than twenty-five hits during the 1950s. This great-value 57-track 2-CD set comprises selected A & B sides of their singles during the era for the Okeh, Columbia, Kapp and Dot labels and features all their 'solo' chart entries from the era, including the Top 10 hits "Moments To Remember", "Not Much", Standing On The Corner", "Skokiaan", "Put A Light In The Window", and "Who Needs You". They were very much a group who epitomised the musical spirit of their times, and in capturing the pop mood of those years, this collection offers an entertaining cross-section of their work
