• The INK SPOTS - More Memories From We Four

The Four Ink Spots recorded for the American DECCA label from 1936 until 1951, and during that time, made it onto the American Top 30 Hit Parade charts with no fewer than forty-six titles. Of these, twenty reached the Top 10, six of them making it to the number one slot, a phenomenal record indeed - if you'll pardon the pun! Twenty of these can be heard once again on a companion JASMINE CD release entitled "We Four - The Best Of The Ink Spots" (JASMCD 2546). This collection includes a sprinkling of hits, together with some of the group's lesser known but nonetheless interesting recordings, all of which deserve another hearing. Included are three titles which may prove unfamiliar to American collectors, and one song which was of special importance in the successful career of the Ink Spots. Three titles included in this collection, all recorded in 1940, were never released as 78 rpm records in America at the time and have probably only been known to collectors in that country who are lucky enough to have acquired the English BRUNSWICK discs. "I Wish I Could Say The Same" has recently appeared on CD but as far as the writer is aware, the other two titles, "Why Didn’t You Tell Me" and "Don’t Ever Break A Promise", are re-issued for the first time."

Also available by The Ink Spots JASBOX6-4 and JASMCD 2546.
