Harmony

In a post somewhat related to the music posts Acidman and I made, James at Parkway Rest Stop talks about groups that are superlative at harmony.

In answer to his question, since he lacks comments, yes, I remember "Mr. Sandman." Was it done by others besides the Chordettes? The one I am recalling is very old - heck, wasn't it in Back to the Future when he showed up in the town in 1955?

I have to agree on the choices here that I'm familiar with, but I can't picture more offhand. I was absolutely crazy about the Bee Gees before they ever went near disco-style music. When I started off the playlist I have on, I picked an Association song as the first one. Beach Boys are a no brainer.

Go have a look; interesting topic in my opinion.

Speaking of harmony, I always loved the song of that name by Elton John, but it's almost never played on the radio and I lack it otherwise.

Great harmonies with guitar crunch get me every time. That's why King's X is one of my favorite bands.

How about the McGuire Sisters for the first recording of Mr. Sandman? Sounds right to me, altho I didn't take time to Google.

Dolly Parton did Mr. Sandman on her first Trio project, with Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris singing harmony IIRC.

Footnote: This has made me crazy! And I have surfed for hours to find that Our Fearless Leader was right the first time with the Chordettes. Recorded originally in 1954.
