7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 6 Jun 2005
Format: Audio CD
Not many Brits know about the Lettermen - they had just one minor UK hit single and no UK hit albums - but they were very popular in their American homeland, where they were consistently successful in both the singles and album charts, especially during the sixties. Smooth ballads were their trademark sound.
The original 1959 line-up was Jim Pike (originally a letterman), Bob Engermann and Tony Butala. In 1968, Gary Pike (Jim's brother) replaced Bob Engermann. Jim left in the mid-seventies, replaced by Donny, another of his brothers.
The original trio were immediately successful with The way you look tonight (a cover of a Fred Astaire song that went gold in America and also charted in Britain). Among their many other American hits, the two biggest were When I fall in love and the medley Gong out of my head / Can't take my eyes off you. The collection includes many other fine songs including their covers of Sealed with a kiss and I only have eyes for you - two classic internationally famous songs. Other highlights include That's my desire, Come back silly girl, How is Julie, Turn around look at me, Silly boy she doesn't love you, Our winter love and Put your head on my shoulder.
Where you're an American looking back nostalgically or a Brit discovering this great trio for the first time, the Lettermen are well worth a listen if you enjoy hearing ballads performed superbly.

An old fashioned word, canoodle, but this is old fashioned lovers music. In the '60s I 'canoodled' and fell in love to the Lettermens' records and this CD brings back those days perfectly. They were (and still are) the harmony group par excellence and if you love smoochy love songs you will not be disappointed. Excellent value (23 tracks) and excellent sound. For me it was a must buy.

These recordings were made between 1961 and 1975. There are 23 tracks, 22 of which were released as singles of which 18 broke into the American Charts. Some of the tracks are covers of other artists hit recordings, although most were successful for The Lettermen too. For example, "That`s My Desire" (Frankie Laine), "Turn Around, Look At Me" (Glen Campbell), "Theme From A Summer Place" (Percy Faith Orchestra), "Sealed With A Kiss" (Brian Hyland), "I Only Have Eyes For You" (Art Garfunkel) and "Put Your Head On My Shoulder" (Paul Anka). The two tracks written by John Lennon, "Love" (1971) and "Oh My Love" (1975) are particularly good with a somewhat British feel about them.

The Lettermen are a group out of their time. They would have been at the top for much longer, with greater success, had they been around 10 years earlier. As soon as the Beat Boom arrived, sadly, this kind of music took second place. Their three voices blended together as one. The diction and harmonies have never been bettered and rarely equalled. Certainly a CD worth adding to any collection. One slight disappointment is the lack of information about the lads in question.

By Richard on 22 April 2011

Descended from a group called the Folkmen who cut one single called Their Hearts Were Full Of Sping came the Lettermen in 1961.They specialised in covers of mainly known songs such as The Way You Look Tonight-which had been cut by the Jaguars in 1956 with the same Moonlight Sonata intro/
The group had a long string of hits through the 60s but meant nothing in the U K
