Two discs and almost 50 tracks of the Ink Spots, all recorded within a relatively narrow 13-year window, could be enough to overwhelm anyone not intimately interested in close-harmony vocal music, especially such a humid, narcoleptic sound as the Ink Spots tended toward. For those unhindered by the prospects of two and a half hours of gentle crooning, though, The Anthology earns its title and then some, sprinkling the big hits already anthologized many times over -- "If I Didn't Care," "My Prayer," "We Three (My Echo, My Shadow and Me)," "Java Jive," "I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire," and "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" -- among a parade of obscure yet intriguing performances. Prime among the latter are the kinetic "Your Feet's Too Big," one of their first recordings, and "That's When Your Heartaches Begin," probably more famous now as an Elvis Presley cover than an Ink Spots original. As often happened during the 1940s and '50s, the Ink Spots also recorded dozens of songs in the standards repertory, and several of those ("Who Wouldn't Love You," "Prisoner of Love," "I Cover the Waterfront," "I Get the Blues When It Rains") make for the biggest surprises on this bountiful compilation. © John Bush /TiVo

MCA's 20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection is a good, basic collection of the Ink Spots' biggest hits -- including "If I Didn't Care," "My Prayer," "Java Jive," "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," "I'm Making Believe," "The Gypsy," "I'm Beginning to See the Light," "Prisoner of Love,"and "To Each His Own" -- available at a budget price. Although there are a couple of hits and good songs missing, this has enough of the best-known tunes to make it worthwhile for casual listeners on a budget. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

The quartet of classic pop balladeers that made up the Ink Spots boast a European-styled delivery of the tenor notes. (One cannot help but expect them to shift to French on any verse.) The bright guitar rhythms hint at '40s-era hot jazz. Their unadorned, simple melodies often figure deep, bass spoken word portions. This combination of textures hearkens from a unique 1930s intersection of vintage jazz and sentimental, vocal-oriented pop music. This compendium gathers the best material of the original lineup and includes a very moving rendition of "Don't Get Around Much Anymore." © Tom Schulte /TiVo
