Subject: RE: best a capella groups
Singers Unlimited is probably the consumate unaccompanied group albiet they NEVER did concerts but were only studio jingle singers who got together, basically sightread the stuff and cut records in a take or two back in the sixties.

A couple points of interest are Gene Puerling rarely ever changed a single note in his arrangements once written. The lady singer rarely spent more than a day or so reading over the music before the final take and has frequently said later that she doesn't even remember recording the songs much less singing them. They sound almost brand new to her years later. Incredible musicians. I agree with the Blenders being outstanding but ya gotta hear Beachfront Property before ya decide on the best Acapella! jimmyt
