Musically, the forties were Ink Spot years. The Vocal fourspme dominated the hit charts with such favorites as "To Each His Own", "The Java Jive" and "If I Didn't Care". Fond Memories. Especially for lead tenor Bill Kenny who now swings on his own as the last surviver of the famous group. This is Bill's first album in five years and it's destined to become a hit in keeping with his past records. There's still plenty of the sensational old-style Tenor to be heard, but now it's combined with the depths of the lower register. As such, Bill's singing presents greater dimensions than ever before. The songs he's chosen here are romantic and sentimental. Some are the greats of yeter-year; some are tunes that have just become a part of what's known as the standard catalogue. All are bound to turn you on. Bill Kenny's past hasn't been without incidents. During the mid-fifties he performed as a single, backed up with the cream of arrangers and conducters. People like Gordon Jenkins, Sy Oliver, and Victor Young. He recorded with Bobby Hackett and sang duets with Ella Fitzgerald. Everything was GO, and the years were good. However, Bill knows bad times too. He is a God-loving man, and believes it was his unabiding faith that saw him through a near-fatal car explosion just a few years back. During his convalescence Bill turned is talent to writting an excellent book of poems which was published in 1970. Vancouver is where Bill and his wife Audrey make their home. And outside of club appearences abroad, Canada is where the sun shines on the Tenor of Ink Spot fame.-Jack Cullen, Radio Sation CKNWNotes taken from the Album Bill Kenny (Mr. Ink Spots) With love 1973
