The Four Aces are one of the most popular male vocal quartets in the limelight since the 1950's, at a time when competition among male quartets was strong. Like The Four Lads and other important groups of the time, they amassed dozens of multi-million selling songs.
Their top gold records included: "Love is a Many-Splendored Thing", "(It's No) Sin", "Tell Me Why", "Stranger in Paradise" and "Three Coins in the Fountain". The original members, responsible for every song made famous by the group, were: lead singer, Al Alberts, Dave Mahoney, Lou Silvestri, and Rosario "Sod" Vaccaro. From 1951 to 1959, they had 44 charted hits and over 15 best selling albums. They were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2001. While a group calling themselves The Four Aces still perform in some venues today, none of them are from the original group, but they have secured the rights to perform with the original name, using the same, musical configuration of songs that were famous. Other top charted hits by The Four Aces included these:
"PERFIDIA" TOP 10 1952
JUST SQUEEZE ME TOP 20 1952
"THE GANG THAT SANG HEART OF MY HEART " TOP 10 1954
