A Capella

It’s an all a cappella showcase on this installment of Trick Bag. Vocal groups were a hot commodity in the ’50s and ’60s, but it wasn’t common for record labels to release recordings without instrumental backing. Fortunately, many a cappella tracks were recorded and preserved. I’ve picked out some real gems to share with you on this episode.
