Recording information: 1957.
This pleasant vocal set from 1957 features standards, many in medley form, by Frank Loesser (along with two co-written seperately by Jule Styne and Hoagy Carmichael), including "Guys and Dolls Medley," "Where's Charley? Medley," and "Spring Will Be a Little Late This Year." The Ray Ellis Orchestra back up the Four Lads throughout this set. Those who appreciate easy listening music with beautiful harmonies will find this a welcome addition to their collection. ~ Al Campbell
