A Rave for Once - 4:2:Five - Time Machine

That is, IF you like a-cappella, ranging from "Come Go With Me" to "Barbara Ann" via a whole range of the standards.

These guys are, however, good.

And the recording is good, too. Except for one track where somebody forgot to let the reverb finish...

I don't see a label or such on it, I suspect it's private label. I got it from a-capella.com (or something similar).

If you don't like barbershop and doo-wop, on the other hand, pass. That's what it is.

Oh, and avoid "The Chicken Song". Cri yi.

Hey, you've been looking at my shelves!

Add the EDLOS, Chordiac Arrest, and the bunch of lawyers from Austin who do "The Jury Sleeps Tonight", whose name has escaped me.

The EDLOS are a blast. The recordings, however, are less than a blast, sadly.
