Album Review

by Greg Adams [allmusic.com]

The Norman Luboff Choir was considered, in some quarters, the best chorus in Hollywood, and Songs of the West is one of its earliest albums. The record was a commercial success and earned the choir's leader the tongue-in-cheek nickname "Hopalong Luboff." The unusual album cover pictures a cattle drive in a Western vista with no text whatsoever. All of the songs are Western classics performed with minimal instrumentation and the chorus' big vocal sound that, even on Western material, is more similar to the Robert Shaw Chorale than the Sons of the Pioneers. The Norman Luboff Choir takes a less stilted approach than Shaw's chorale, though, which makes its music more accessible though somewhat somber. Songs of the West is a beautifully performed album for Western music lovers, and ranks with Reverie as one of the choir's finest albums.

Norman Luboff's Biography

by Jason Ankeny [allmusic.com]

The Norman Luboff Choir was among the most popular choral ensembles of their day, releasing a series of hit easy-listening LPs during the late 1950s and 1960s. Luboff was born May 14, 1917 in Chicago, where he began his career as a vocalist and arranger for area radio programs; in 1948 he relocated to Hollywood, signing on to compose movie music for Warner Bros. The first incarnation of the Norman Luboff Choir was formed during the mid-1950s, and in the years to follow they released a series of albums on Columbia that drew on music from a variety of genres and geographic locales, with titles including Calypso Holiday, Broadway!, Songs of the Cowboy and Songs of the Caribbean. The choir also backed a number of vocalists including Harry Belafonte and Doris Day, and although their recording career came to a halt during the late 1960s, they continued touring until Luboff's cancer-related death on September 22, 1987.
