5 stars for chilhood memories

This album brings back a flood of childhood memories. An ultimate collection of sunday songs from years gone by

At best, ethereal; at worst, just plain dull

The Sandpipers began as a trio of guys who recorded for Herb Alpert’s A&M Records in the late 1960s. They recorded several songs as The Grads, but they went nowhere. They finally found their niche with easy-listening covers of standards (“Strangers in the Night,” “Softly, As I Leave You”, “Try to Remember"), rock songs (like “Louie, Louie,” “Hang On, Sloopy") made to sound like standards, and sanitized, summery songs from south of the border or Europe (“The French Song,” “Enamorado,” and, of course, “Guantanamera”), adding in lyric-less female vocal to many songs—and later a female vocalist to their group—to create a soft, sometimes ethereal sound. But for the most part, their songs were vanilla and dull, okay primarily as background music. “Guantanamera” was their first hit single, and probably the high point of their career. Arguably, the best song—and best produced song—in their repertoire, ironically, is “Come Saturday Morning” from the soundtrack to the movie “The Sterile Cuckoo” (called “Pookie” in the U.K.). I say “ironically,” because it is also one of hardest songs to find in a downloadable format. ITunes doesn’t offer it. Neither does Amazon. I’ve never even been able to find a CD of that soundtrack, only vinyl. And when the trio made a CD or two more recently, they left “Come Saturday Morning” out, although it would have been a perfect way to get their sound back into listeners’ ears.


Good version of "Things We Said Today"............................I recommend!

Years Active: '60s, '70s

The Sandpipers were a male vocal trio that recorded a handful of easy listening pop hits in the mid-'60s. The group was distinguished by its light, breezy harmonies, which floated over delicate, breezy string arrangements, as well as the occasional appearance of a wordless female backing vocalist who drifted in and out of the music. Though they didn't manage to have a long, sustained career, the group did have one Top Ten hit with "Guantanamera" in 1966. Originally, the Sandpipers were known as...
