6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Enrique Ovidio Carro Rey on 23 Oct. 2007
Format: Audio CD
Lovely compilation. When Elvis was beginning to be the performer of the century, doo wop singles were one after the other topping the charts. The Skyliners had the same line-up of The Platters: four boys and a girl, but the soaring soprano voice of Janet Vogel adds something special. Jimmy Beaumont was also a wonderful singer, and the orchestral arrangements are gorgeous. The desperate anguish of Since I don't have you, the promise of everlasting love of This I swear, the lovely I can dream, can't I, are simply the peaks of the set. The vocal harmonies, blending with the lead voice, are astonishing. You can't find singing as beautiful as this, nowadays (sadly). Luckily, we still have compilations like this.

This is an excellent CD, and brought back loads of memories of my younger days. Wish they made songs like this now!

Quality Singing 11 Feb. 2005
By D. Hutchins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If I have to choose between a black group from the Doo Wop era, and a white group, I'll almost invariably choose the black group. Why? Am I a racist, who just can't accept the talent of good white singers? Nope. Being a white guy myself, that idea doesn't really enter the picture. It's just that most white groups that I've heard are pale imitations of the more natural, soulful voices one hears in their groups. Some examples are Vito and the Saultations, the Five Discs, Randy and the Rainbows, and the Elegants. They're not bad, but they don't compare, in terms of rhe richness of vocal quality you could find in, say, the Moonglows, the Flamingos, or the Harptones.

So where do the Skyliners fit in? This group could sing. Jimmy Beaumont, the distinctive, bluesy lead had a wonderful, impressive, and confident voice. He was always on key, and you know, when you listen to the records, that he meant every word he sang. This isn't a "goody-goody" bunch of singers. We're not talking about pop style here (except for the intrusion of those strings). Their style is definitely in the direction of R&B. It's a coolness that goes beyond the conventional, mainstream sounds. That's why the Skyliners' records have had a staying power over the years. It's also a shame that some of their other recordings, besides "Since I Don't Have You" and This I Swear" never get airplay. How about "Lonely Way", "I'll Be Seeing You", or "Comes Love"?

I had the pleasure of seeing the Skyliners in concert several times, in the early '70s. I was astounded by the range of their talent, and the beauty of their soulful voices. Their were indeed one of the few groups to record back in the early '60s, who understood the essence of rhythm & blues group harmony, and could do it as it should've been done.

Pick up this CD, and enjoy some great music you'll never forget!

CLASS ACT IF EVER THERE WAS ONE. 9 Mar. 2005
By Samiam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Doo Wop, with its emphasis on voice as musical instrument, represents one of the most beautiful genres ever. The Skyliners exude so much feeling delivered with almost cocky confidence it's amazing. Too many white singers seem to confuse soulful singing with trying to sound black (Michael Bolton;Michael Mcdonald)and come off sounding strained. This group's soulful sound comes off its superior talent, honesty, inocence, and unapologetic white sound. Every song on this disc is a treat. By the way, I'm a black classic soul music freak.

Sweet, Soulful, Serene, Sincere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 28 Jan. 2004
By Henry W. Stanley Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was not around when this group was on the charts but, everytime I listen to the music it takes me to a time when things were somehow more innocent. This music is swingin' and sincere. Do yourself a favor buy all the Skyliners albums and listen to them frequently.

SIMPLY ELEGANT 27 May 2006
By DON M. RAE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
DON'T ORDER THIS RECORD BECAUSE SINCE I DONT HAVE YOU AND THIS I SWEAR ARE ON HERE. THOSE ARE ON ALL KINDS OF COMPILATIONS AND THE RADIO EVERY DAY.ITS ALL THOSE OTHER GREAT SONGS THAT YOU DONT HEAR ON THE OLDIES THAT ARE THE REAL TREAT OF THIS CD. ITS UNBELIEVABLE HOW GOOD THEY ARE, ITS HARD TO PICK ONLY ONE FAVORITE BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL GREAT ARRANGEMENTS OF FANTASTIC SONGS BOTH THEIR ORIGINALS AND COVERS. JUST LISTEN TO I'LL BE SEEING YOU, BELIEVE ME, LONELY WAY, HOW MUCH, WARM, IF I CAN DREAM CANT I, WHEN I FALL IN LOVE, AND STARDUST. A CD JUST DOES NOT GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT. BUY IT YOU WONT BE SORRY.

This album is a good walk back through the late 50s and 60s 13 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The songs on this album show that Jimmy Beaumont as a lead vocalist is every bit as great as Bobby Darin, Paul Anka, or even Frank Sinatra. The big band sound and the addition of a rock n'roll beat make the Skyliners a leader in early rock n' rool groups. Too bad that the Skyliner hits on ColPix without Jimmy are not included as they were just as great. Also the singles of Jimmy Beaumont "Every Bodys Cryin" and Feel Like I'm Falling In Love" should also have been included. Otherwise this is A1.
