The Ink Spots: Swing High, Swing Low 1930s & 40s Vocal

(1 customer review)

CD: £10.00

Lyrics from the famous Ink Spots. Do you recall songs like ‘Bless You’, ‘My Prayer’, ‘Whispering Grass’, ‘Do I Worry?’ and ‘If I Didn’t Care’? If you remember just one of these, then you will surely recall the identity of the singers. The introductory guitar notes with which they started all their famous recordings, the high pitched vocals, the talking bass lines – all were instant trademarks of a group whose style was uniquely sophisticated and ‘Oh, so smooth!’

COVER NOTES

Cast your mind back, if you will, to the Forties, to the war years and particularly to the popular music of that era. Do you recall songs like ‘Bless You’, ‘My Prayer’, ‘Whispering Grass’, ‘Do I Worry?’ and ‘If I Didn’t Care?’ If you remember just one of these, then you will surely recall the identity of the singers. The introductory guitar notes with which they started all their famous recordings, the high pitched vocals, the talking bass lines, all were instant trademarks of a group whose style was uniquely sophisticated and ‘oh! so smooth’. Yes, of course, they were the Ink Spots.
Their ‘spark-plug’ was Deacon ‘Ivory’ Watson from Mounds, Illinois, who had started in show business as a singer and dancer at the age of six. When just twelve years old he led a group called The Riff Brothers. In 1934 he joined Orville ‘Hoppy’ Jones, Charlie Fuqua and Jerry Daniels to form a quartet for which they had no name. The story goes that whilst mulling over ideas with their manager, suggestions flowed freely, but the manager’s pen didn’t. He shook it onto a blotter, producing four ink blobs. That was it, a perfect description of the quartet The Four Ink Spots! (The ‘Four’ was soon dropped.)
