Destination Moon - Ames Brothers

Destination Moon
Ames Brothers
With Sid Rain and His Orchestra
Vocal Arrangements: Al Semola
RCA Victor LSP-1680

Available from online vendors and other media resources so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here to share the cover art.

From the back cover: It may have been Jimmy McHugh (composer of I'm Shooting High and so many other great songs) who observed, "In this album the Ames Brothers are at their best." Which is to say that here is popular music's finest, most musical quartet in a dozen of its most splendid moments. Incidentally, for those of you who may not know, the singing solos are all by Ed Ames. Ed and Joe, Gene and Vic have one thing to say together about this album:

So away we steal
In a space-mobile,
A supersonic honeymoon
Leave your cares below.
Pull the switch, LET'S GO

Destination Moon
Clear Out Of This World
East Of The Sun
Count Every Star
No Moon At All
I'm Shooting High
Music From Out Of Space
Stella By Starlight
It's Only A Paper Moon
The Starlit Hour
Beyond The Blue Horizon
