The Brothers Four were one of the best of the harmony groups in the Folk Era, and this album demonstrates their practically perfect arrangements and beautiful way of having their voices come together that must have taken many hours of practice; a very professional group. Their resulting sound was one of the warmest and mellowest in folk music. The songs include their biggest hit, Greenfields, and it's amazing how gentle and quiet this song is, especially considering that it went to on the pop charts
The BMOCs of the Folk Revival, four frat brothers with flawless harmonies and big hits.
