Serendipity/The Many Sides of the Serendipity Singers
The Serendipity Singers
1999: PolyGram/Collectables COL-CD-2728
I grew up with Serendipity and Take Your Shoes Off but not the middle album from this group, and I really do wish all three were available on CD now. This is a handy combination of their first two albums, but because it doesnt contain the third albums title track and its closing track of Rider (of all things) I cant quite rate this as highly as Id like to. Still, if you ever heard their music when you were young you will probably like this very much. With the outstandingly annoying exception of Beans In Our Ears, that is all the other tracks are at least interesting if not great, and the great ones are so very lovely: examples of the latter are Sailing Away, Sunshine Special, Fast Freight, Waggoner Lad, and a few others.
