The Anita Kerr Singers - All You Need Is Love 1967 (2015 Warner Brothers Remastered) Flac & mp3


In the 1950s and '60s, the Anita Kerr Singers were one of the most popular group of backup vocalists in all of country music, appearing on countless recordings by renowned Nashville artists. Kerr was the group's leader, but was joined by alto Dottie Dillard, tenor Gil Wright, and baritone Louis Nunley, as the quartet initially gained attention by performing on the NBC radio program Sunday Down South in the early '50s, which led to a contract with Decca Records.

In 1956, the Anita Kerr Singers landed a spot on the New York-based Arthur Godfrey Talent Scouts TV show, which led to further broadcast appearances (although the group never let their session work for others subside). Around the same time, Chet Atkins (then the head of RCA Records' country division) took the group under his wing, which led to the quartet appearing on countless recordings by renowned artists. The Singers continued to record and tour straight through the '60s, even managing to issue several of their own albums, including Anita Kerr Singers Reflect on the Hits of Burt Bacharach & Hal David, Velvet Voices and Bold Brass, and Simon & Garfunkel Songbook, among others.(allmusic)


I only know this album by the Anita Kerr Singers and because i always loved well done vocals in music i like this very much. I am an instrumentalist (and quite bad vocalist :-) ) but one of the first things i learned in making music was the vocals are the most important part in pop music. Anyway this is a very fine work and maybe you give it a try.
Enjoy
