Sonny Til was one of the classic voices of black music, and his group, the Orioles, is generally reckoned as the first R&B vocal group. They were the ones that brought the Ink Spots sound into the modern era, and along the way they scored some memorable hits. All of them are here, like' It's Too Soon To Know, Crying In The Chapel, and Tell Me So. This is the Orioles from A-Z. The set starts in 1948 and concludes in 1960. More than 150 recordings for Jubilee Records, rare photos, and a newly researched bio tell the story of Sonny Til - perhaps the greatest voice in vocal group history - and the Orioles.
