Classics IV is now five! Since the release of their last hit album, "Spooky," a new depth has been added to the already deep sounds of Classics IV.
The group has always concentrated on their voices, their harmony, and their arrangements, rather than any recording aides, to produce a clean, uncluttered, ungimmicked sound. With the addition of a fifth member, Classics IV's sound achieves a new fullness, reminiscent at times of the Mamas and Papas — which, by the way, is the titte of the song which best exemplifies the new sound of Classics IV.
The new fullness is not accomplished by recording gimmicks, which tend to artificially blend voices together. The voices remain distinct. The harmony retains its tonality... Classics IV is a pop group that sings on key, a fact that becomes especially apparent when they sing in unison. Versatility is the key to their distinctiveness... in their selections (from "Soul Train" to "It Ain't Necessarily So")... in their arrangements (from full five-part harmony to solo soul).
Classics IV's uniqueness centers on Dennis Yost, who leads the group into every realm of music — an admirable accomplishment considering the fact that most groups today have a standard sound. So don't expect to hear the same sound on each track.. .expect fullness combined with versatility.. .expect the unexpected...and enjoy the classic sounds of the Classics IV. ~ Ken Beck
