Yes, that is Spock in the headphones. The year was 1979. These are some of my LPs, themed compilations, and the like.

The Single Swingers!


No, these are definitely NOT the choral group organized by Ward Swingle.  No, these vocalists are assuredly not the singing group that's popular worldwide.

Those would be the Swingle Singers.

These guys?  They're the Single Swingers.

Totally different, right?

Anyway, with no inclination of how they swing, these are the selections:


1 - Prelude For Organ Choral No 1
2 - Aria (from Suite in D Major)
3 - Cannon
4 - Bourree (from English Suite No 2)
5 - Fugue In D Major (from The Well-Tempered Clavier)
6 - Sinfonia (from Partita No 2)
7 - Largo (from Harpsichord Concerto in F minor)


From a review on ballroomrecord.com:

Chin Music! Grave Swingle Singers, Single Swingers what! Rare CD Cover in the scat chorus of Bach's B-class masterpieces!

I love make-believe from WYNCOTE label, has released a lot of strange record. Technique is to mimic the chorus is like but could not.  In such scat "BOURREE", "FUGUE IN D MAJOR" and "PRELUDE FOR ORGAN CHORAL NO.1", all 7 tracks on this disc! This sense of class B, irresistibly best!

 How could I improve on that review?  Here 'tis.
