Subject: RE: best a capella groups
You bet The Swingles were terrific. Dave Swingle was a brilliant arranger and is responsible for the resurgence of a cappela. But, I contend that Take6 has extended his vision and has set the bar so high that no other group will be able to equal them. Their first album, the all gospel "Spread Love", was a revelation. I, no longer, perform "Oh, Mary, Don't You Weep". After hearing Take6's version, I wouldn't dare.
