As the years slip by, the appreciation of the Masqueraders keeps getting higher. The more people see and hear them, the more they are in awe of their harmonizing skills. Although they never had a huge hit, their unique, classy singing keeps people reverting to their old recordings frequently.

     - Heikki Suosalo, Soul Express


LocoBop went to the vaults to compile thirteen timeless tracks by The Masqueraders for this retrospective.
 

The Masqueradersí genesis goes back fifty years when Robert ďTexĒ Wrightsil formed a group called The Stairs in his hometown of Dallas,

Texas. They recorded one record for Sound Town, a local Dallas label, in 1959.


After several line-up changes, their recording career as The Masqueraders began in 1964. After a stint in Detroit, the group has, for the most part, made Memphis, Tennessee their home,

where they still (2014) actively perform, write, and record.


We can never get too much of the Masqueraders. Their songs, harmonies, arrangements, are forever reassuring, reflective, or rousing, depending on your mood. Above all, theyíre refreshing, hence this albumís title
.
