MASTERWORKS SERIES VOLUME 2 by The Buffalo Bills (256K MP3)


The Buffalo Bills bubbled to the top of the public consciousness during their star turn in the Tony Award-winning smash hit Broadway musical THE MUSIC MAN as the members of the River City School Board who sang "Lida Rose" (a moment in barbershop history that would introduce many of us novices to the style). In fact, though, they continued to live long and prosper way beyond that. As Columbia recording artists, they produced many albums (some with accompaniment), the highlights of which are compiled on these releases produced by Brian Beck. Digitally re-mastered to bring the quality to modern standards (though several tracks from their very earliest recording efforts couldn't be repaired 100%, but heck, it is part of the charm), the Bills' sound is startlingly robust for a group that won the International Quartet Championship of the Barbershop Harmony Society in 1950. Significant credit for this must be given to the arrangements of Walter Latzko, who began an eight-album association with the quartet in 1951; his impact on the barbershop artform in general can hardly be overstated.
