A cappella

I'm a big fan of a cappella music. I prefer solo to multiple voices. I'm having trouble finding much of it commercially, however.

Anyone have any suggestions, artists, songs, albums, sites, etc. that might help me along in my search?

Thanks!

It is very difficult to sing without accompaniment, even for a trained musician. It's even harder to do solo, than as part of a group (no chance to sneak a breath etc.).

If you do find something, please post it here.

I assume you already know about the Nylons, Straight No Chaser, and the Undertones. All groups

I like Da Vinci's Notebook (another group)

Popular or classical, stormy?

Manhattan Transfer for popular, Anonymous 4 for Medieval.

Manhattan Transfer is a very nice vocal group. But a lot (most?) of their stuff is not a capella.

Ooo wah, ooo wah cool, cool kitty
Tell us about the boy from New York City
Ooo wah, ooo wah cmon kitty
Tell us about the boy from New York City

He's kind of tall
He's really fine
Some day I hope to make him mine, all mine
And he's neat and oh so sweet
And just the way he looked at me
He swept me off my feet
Ooo whee, you ought to come and see
How he walks
And how he talks

There's a place where people go
To dance the night away
They all drive or walk for miles
To get jive that southern style
