Victor 17560 - Heidelberg Quintette (Billy Murray, Robert D. Armour, Will Oakland, William F. Hooley, Steve Porter) By The Beautiful Sea 1914 - Music & Lyrics by Harry Carroll , Harold Richard Atteridge. From the musical "For Me and My Gal" The Heidelberg Quintet (or "Quintette," on Victor) was a short-lived but nonetheless outstanding barbershop-styled vocal group that recorded for Victor and Edison from 1912 to 1914. The group was basically the same as the American Quartet, except that countertenor Will Oakland was added to take some especially high parts that helped give the Heidelberg its distinctive sound. The Heidelberg Quintet's arrangements were made by composer George L. Botsford, who was responsible for writing such ragtime standards as "The Grizzly Bear" and "Black and White Rag." With these and other elements in place, The Heidelberg Quintet records remain positive, upbeat, syncopated, and contemporary-sounding for their day, as opposed to the more maudlin, sentimental fare common on pop vocal records of the era. Besides Oakland, the singers in The Heidelberg Quintet included tenors Billy Murray and John H. Bieling, baritone Steve Porter, and bass William F. Hooley. In September 1913, John H. Bieling retired from singing and was replaced by tenor Robert D. Armour, who also assumed Bieling's place in the American Quartet. Armour was replaced again in the American Quartet in mid-1915 by tenor John Young, but by that time The Heidelberg Quintet had already ceased recording for good. Lyrics: Joe and Jane were always together. Said Joe to Jane, "I love summer weather, So let's go to that beautiful sea, Follow along, Say you're with me!" Anything that Joe would suggest to her Jane would always think it was best for her. So he'd get his Ford, Holler: "ALL ABOARD! Gosh, I want to be: By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea! You and me, you and me, oh how happy we'll be! When each wave comes a-rolling in We will duck or swim, And we'll float and fool around the water. Over and under, and then up for air, Pa is rich, Ma is rich, so now what do we care? I love to be beside your side, beside the sea, Beside the seaside, by the beautiful sea!
