Product Notes

The Four Knights were a successful African-American doowop group active in the post-war era, who, unlike many of their contemporaries in the genre, enjoyed their hit success in the pop charts rather than the R&B lists. Formed in 1943 as a gospel quartet, and becoming popular on radio, they moved into the secular market and signed to Decca in 1946, having hits in the pop and UK charts through to 1959. This great-value 58-track 2-CD set comprises selected A & B sides of their singles on the Capitol and Coral labels during this era - we have tried to minimise duplication of tracks with our existing Acrobat product "Oh Baby! Best Of Volume 1 1951-1954" (Acrobat ACMCD4030), as this collection covers a much longer period of their career. It naturally features all their US pop and UK chart entries, including their Top 10 hits "Oh Happy Day" and "(Oh Baby Mine) I Get So Lonely", as well as their Top 10 hits with Nat King Cole, "If I May" and "That's All There Is To That", plus one other hit with Nat, "My Personal Possession". It includes at least one side from just about all their single releases during these years, so is a fairly comprehensive overview of their output, and provides an insight into the way their music developed as the pop landscape changed, as well as an admirable showcase for their talents as an accomplished vocal harmony group
