Ed Ames has such a unique style of singing that makes every song a unique masterpiece! Great songs that should be remembered throughout the ages!!!

One of the best voices - Very underrated

Ed's rich, full voice is never weak and is versatile. He easily covers the lowest to surprisingly high notes. While "My Cup Runneth Over" is deservedly the most recognized song on this album, "Try to Remember", "Who Will Answer?", and "When the Snow is on the Roses" are excellent as well. (I'm partial to "Who Will Answer".)

About Ed Ames

Pop vocalist Ed Ames was born Ed Urick in 1927. The youngest of four brothers, he began to sing with Joe, Gene, and Vic in the late '40s. The Ames Brothers hit the Top Ten three times between 1954 and 1957, and starred in their own series in 1955. After the group broke up in 1959, Ames traveled to New York to study acting; he appeared in a few stage productions and then accepted a role in the series Daniel Boone playing Mingo the Indian. He began recording again in 1964, eventually notching seven hits in the charts, including 1967's Top Ten single "My Cup Runneth Over." Twelve albums were eventually released from the mid-'60s to early '70s, including The Best of Ed Ames (1969). ~ John Bush
