The Four Lads: Moments To Remember (LP)

(CBS) 12 Tracks - Columbia Records Collectors' Series - originally sealed copy!

Cut-Out LP

The group on this record is the original Toronto group: Bernie Toorist, lead tenor and arranger; Jimmy Arnold, second tenor; Frank Busseri, baritone, and Connie Codarini, bass. In 1951 they had reached the.point where it was just a matter of getting discovered. That task initially fell to Orlando Wilson of the Golden Gate Quartet. He heard the Lads in Canada and got the Golden Gate's management to arrange a booking in New York. 

They were signed for two weeks in Le Ruben Blue and proceeded to stay for thirty. At this point enter Mitch Miller, who was then in the process of building Columbia Records into the country's number one pop label. Between 1950 and 1952 he helped bring the company from a poor fourth among the majors to undisputed leadership. Willing to try new things—but not too new—he had an eye for talent and an ear for the record as a medium. He was the right man in the right place at the right time. Particularly right for the Four Lads. Miller first heard them in Chicago playing at the Buttery of the Ambassador Hotel. "I wasn't after a Four Aces-type sound," he recalled recently. ''

They just sang good. I wanted them for the label." The Four Lads made their first appearance as back-up singers for Johnnie Ray on Little White Cloud that Cried. They also supported other Columbia stars such as Frankie Laine and Doris Day. But they soon broke through on their own. Two of their earlier hits are included here—Istanbul and Skokiaan. There was a trend toward foreign tunes that flourished in the early '50s. It included such ditties as Happy Wanderer and Answer Me My Love from Germany, Oh My Papa from Switzerland, and Bongo Bongo Bongo (I Don't Want to Leave the Congo), which tried to sound as if it was from Africa. But Skokiaan actually did—Northern Rhodesia to be exact. The "happy happy Africa" lyric, obviously not from Rhodesia, shows how far we've really come from the quaint innocence of 1954. The orchestra, by the way, is conducted by Neal Hefti. In 1955 Most Happy Fella by Frank Loesser came along and gave the Lads one of their biggest hits, Standing On The Corner. After the single record came out, the group went back into the st udio and put togetheran en-tire package of Loesser tunes. 

The Four Lads remained with Columbia until 1960, and subsequently recorded for Kapp and United Artists. Long after the Aces, the Ames Brothers and other groups of the '50s broke up, the Lads continued to perform. Today they're still perform-ing. Of the original group, Busseri and Arnold are still members. Toorist and Condarini have been replaced by Johnny D'Arc and Aaron Bruce. Late in 1976 they recreated some of their biggest hits at Universal Studios in Chicago for the Fona Label. The Four Lads produced some of the most memorable tunes of the pre-Haley, pre-Presley '50s. Here are some of those tunes again, available in their original form for the first time in more than 10 years.
