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.
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.
