BOX SET Revives Skyliners Music 17 Jan. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although I was born in 1953, I have been a fan of Jimmy Beaumont and the Skyliners from the first time I heard "Since I Don't Have You" as a teenager. Already considered "Oldies" artists by the 1970s, the Skyliners had only a couple of albums available on LP format, so some of their better music was unavailable at all because it was not really mainstream music any more. Nevertheless, I always enjoyed songs like, "This, I Swear" and "It Happened Today." This latest BOX SET collection, however, provides the first real opportunity to hear some wonderful and rare recordings. There is no question that a song like "Comes Love" is as enchanting as any music from that period, and this 2-CD set allows Skyliners fans to literally re-discover their music--- a great collection!

The Incomparable Skyliners 7 Oct. 2000
By Lynn Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Forever and Always the Skyliners will be my favorite Doo Wop group. The 40th Anniversary Edition CD was a must have for me,and I recommend it to anyone who wants to be treated to what I would call the best vocal arrangments ever set down in "Wax" In 1993 the Skyliners performed at a local outdoor concert and I got to see Jimmy Beaumont, Rick Morris and the rest perform many of the songs on this Anniversary Edition. It was thrilling to see the group performing on the TV DooWop 50's show presented by Public Television.
What sets this group apart from so many of their time period is the use of wonderful orchestral arrangments using stings. If I were asked to choose just one of the Skyliners hits,it would have to be This I Swear. The song's blend of close and complicated vocal harmony's at the bridge, gives me goosebumps. Who can forget Janet Vogel's vocal range at the end of the song,what a true talent. The Collection is a must have for anyone who wants a piece timeless, perfection to add to their music collection.

Thanks from Joe Rock 14 Mar. 2000
By Joe Rock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hi, I'm Joe Rock, manager of Jimmy Beaumont and The Skyliners from the beginning to the present. As co-writer and producer for 40+ years. I feel this is the ultimate musical portrait of my act, and showcases the best material and personnel from 1958-to-1990. Thank you all.

A true tribute... 14 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
All too often, doo wop groups of the 50's tend to have one or two hit records and their other songs simply don't measure up. The Skyliners will always be credited with having two of the era's greatest songs (This I Swear, and, Since I Don't Have You), but many of their others deserved to be counted among this genre's best.
Listening to this collection reinforces what others have said: Jimmie Beaumont has one of the best voices in the history of rock and roll, and the Skyliners really are good. If you like early rock and roll doo-wop style, you'll like this album, trust me.

BEST CD I EVER PURCHASED! 23 Sept. 2000
By Peg55 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Who could not possibly fall in love with Jimmy Beaumont's voice? And what a voice! I just received this CD and I am playing it right now. Wow! What a group! Recently saw them on Public Television with the Doo Woop Show and just purchased the tape on it also! They are really the best and you could not possibly pick a favorite amongst all that is on this 2 CD set. You will certainly love each and every song. I only wish we all had the opportunity of seeing them on TV more often. If they are appearing anywhere, please email me right away. This certainly is money well spent. You won't be sorry. Best group around.
