THE INK SPOTS (ORIGINAL GROUP)

WHAT'S NEW?


A poster offered for sale on Ebay in August, 2010 provides proof of an Ink Spots performance in Northfield, Vermont on 3May/40 at the Armory, Norwich University as part of their Junior Week festivities. This is the 39th state where we have proof that the Ink Spots performed. They also performed in Washington, DC many times.

(We also have a note from the Pittsburgh Courier of 15Apr/50 that they performed in Idaho as part of a tour but we have never found proof of a performance anywhere in that state. Any help in tracking down this performance, if it took place, would be appreciated.)

  • Also issued some time ago, a wonderful CD of Ink Spots songs that, in the main, have never been available to any but the most serious collectors of Ink Spots music. It's called RARE AIR: The INK SPOTS along with special guests. Great liner notes by Bill "Porkchop" Proctor. This is a CD that all true Ink Spots fans must have. It includes 25 songs including many you've never heard before from radio and movies. Songs you have probably never heard the Ink Spots sing include: Swing, Mr. Charlie included as part of a "Chick Webb's Society for the Preservation of Good Times" radio program, Lamplighter Serenade, I've Got A Bone to Pick With You, Shoo Shoo Baby, Do Nothing 'Till You Hear From Me, Don't Sweetheart Me, Put Your Arms Around Me Honey, How Many Hearts Have You Broken and Time Waits For No One. For those who must have the old standards, there are slightly different versions of If I Didn't Care, Maybe, Do I Worry, Java Jive and Someone's Rocking My Dreamboat. Other great songs as well for a total of 25!! Get this one. It is available from Flyright, #FLY CD 67, Interstate Music Ltd., England. Order from your local store or go to Amazon.com
