Best of the Ink Spots CD music The Ink Spots were the first modern black vocal group, and although chiefly known for their wonderful harmonies, which bridged the gap between 1940s pop styles and the street corner doo wop styles of the 1950s, they were also a self-contained band, and a versatile one. Led by lead singers Deek Watson and Bill Kenny (whose other worldly high tenor and mannered diction put him in a class by himself), and grounded by Hoppy Jones' innovative (and often improvised) talking-bass vocal lines, the Ink Spots charted nearly 50 Top 40 singles beginning with "If I Didn't Care" in 1939.

20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of the Mills Brothers CD (2000) Top Seller
Best of the Ink Spots buy CD music Recorded between 1942 and 1967. Includes liner notes by Joseph F. Laredo.
The Mills Brothers left behind a titanic body of recordings, all of which reveal a tonal beauty and soulful spirit. They performed for over five decades, creating strong but soft harmonies that brought out the best in the songs they sang. This CD gathers some of their most popular recordings from 1941-1956. At this time the group consisted of John, Sr., and his three sons, Harry, Herbert, and Donald.
Classic songs like "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" blaze with the group's rich and lyrical locomotion. Mellow and sweet, steady yet sprightly, the Brothers perform with infectious rhythm. "Paper Doll," a massive hit, is marked, as are most of these tracks, with the exceptionally sweet sonority of Donald's lead vocal. The tempo steps up as Harry and the rest swing that doll around in a graceful whirl.
All tracks have been digitally remastered.
This is part of the MCA Records 20th Century Masters series.
