• The CHARIOTEERS - Swing Low, Sweet Charioteers

Starting as The Harmony Four back in 1930, The Charioteers are a fantastic four-part vocal group that should not be forgotten and who gave groups like The Mills Brothers a run for their money!

Featuring the brilliant high tenor voice of Wilfred 'Billy' Williams the group's expertise and sheer professionalism can be heard throughout the 59 tracks on this fantastic 2CD set, especially on hits like: 'So Long'; 'On the Boardwalk in Atlantic City'; 'Open the Door, Richard' and 'Oooh! Look-A-There, Ain't She Pretty?'

Touring extensively in the States; The Charioteers never got scant chance to make themselves known this side of the Atlantic and most will only know of the group due to Billy Williams success as a solo artist. However it is never too late to get a piece of the action, so grab yourself one of these marvellous sets and 'swing low' with The 'sweet' Charioteers!
