INK SPOTS / IF I DIDN't CARE: AN ANTHOLOGY - 2 CDs / 40 Songs / 10 Previously Unreleased. With a high-flying tenor floating above their tight harmonies, the Ink Spots were the predecessors of doo-wop.
They became so popular that all-white venues integrated to get them in their lineup, a rare occurrence in the Forties. Countless vocal groups modeled themselves after the Ink Spots. The Ink Spots were frequent chart toppers totaling over 50 hits in their 17 year recording career. Their best selling record "If I Didn't Care" sold over 19 million copies and is currently the 7th best selling single of all time. Disc One focuses on post-1950 with a recasting of their hits by original lead vocalists Bill Kenny and Charlie Fuqua. Disc 2 features the original group performing hits and rarities between 1938 and 1944. $1.00 from each album sold will be donated to the National Urban League.
