love these songs that you put on here especially the 50’s. I can close my eyes and be 16 again.

Another wonderful group sorely missed. Great music then. Isn’t it wonderful that you could sing right along with them? Those really were the days.

I was born in the 50’s and agree with Janice above. Also agree with Lily. I never knew this group but my Mother spoke of them often. A favorite for her i think. Thank you for the memory reminder and i will look forward to more.

This was my Dad’s favorite group–I grew up in the late 40’s “having” to listen to them–and until this day I think I can sing along with everyone of their songs,

OH MY!!!! SO MANY MEMORIES OF MY PARENTS LOVE OF THE INK SPOTS THAT I REMEMBER AS A LITTLE GIRL. MY DAD WAS AN INCURABLE ROMANTIC AND WAS SO FOND OF THIS SONG HE OFTEN DEDICATED TO MOTHER!!! I HEARD THIS SONG SO MUCH AS LITTLE ONE AND UNBELIEVEABLE AS IT MAY SEEM, WHILE SEATED BEFORE MY PC I SANG ALONG, REMEMBERING EACH OF THE WORDS!!! I WAS AMAZED. ALWAYS ENJOY THESE SONGS OF BYGONE DAYS THAT STIR UP SO MANY CHILDHOOD MEMORIES. THANKS SO MUCH!!! M. LARSEN

Our Dad loved the Inkspots and the Mills Brothers. He sang along with each of their songs as they came pouring out of our car radio, a 1948 Plymouth. Eventually my brother and I joined in as began to learn the words. This was in ’48 and ’49 as we drove around Chicago where our father was living. Our parents were divorced and we started our regular visits with him that first summer. We were 8 and 11 years old and missed our dad very much. We too can recall all of the words and singing along brings back a time and a place and a visit that had been longed for and gave me such a sweet feeling as though nothing had changed in our lives. This was only the beginning of more changes than I can count but still a feeling of happiness fills me as I can almost hear my father’s voice. Thank you

Still some of the best music EVER!! Would really miss that if there were not a “ton” of CDs in my house – and car. My car is old enough that it still has a CD player! I never use the radio! Why would I??

Oh, it is always so great to hear this wonderful music and the blending of those fantastic voices. Loved it years ago, still so soothing to listen to, today. A time of beautiful music that we no longer have. Thanks nethugs fo keeping it alive.
