2 LPs on 1 CD: BREEZIN' ALONG (1959)/ON THE SUNNY SIDE (1956).
Personnel includes: The Four Lads; Ray Ellis, Claude Thornhill (conductor).
Originally released on Columbia.
Breezin' Along/On the Sunny Side collects two of the Four Lads' mid-'50s albums onto one CD. Aside from "Breezin' Along With the Breeze," neither of these albums include definitive songs from the Lads, but their smooth, appealing versions of standards such as "Someone to Watch Over Me," "On the Sunny Side of the Street," "Sentimental Journey," and "The Way You Look Tonight" showcase the group's expressive harmonies just as well. Recommended for anyone wanting to dig deeper into the Four Lads' catalog than their greatest-hits collections. ~ Heather Phares
