The Top Ten Barbershop Quartets of 1969.
The group did record one more album, Abbey Road - work on which started the following month - but by September 1969 the Beatles had unofficially disbanded. Several of the rooftop performances, particularly that of "Dig a Pony", were regarded as showing the Beatles once again in top form. Fans believed the rooftop concert might have been a try-out for a return. In The Simpsons fifth season episode "Homer's Barbershop Quartet", the Be Sharps (Homer, Apu, Barney and Principal Skinner) perform a rendition of one of their previous hits on a rooftop. McCartney played a surprise mini-concert in midtown Manhattan from the top of the marquee of the Ed Sullivan Theater on 15 July 2009, where he was recording a performance for Late Show with David Letterman.
Modern barbershop quartets often costume themselves in gaudy versions of the vaudeville dress of this time, with boaters and vertically striped vests. Composer and pianist Scott Joplin incorporated a barbershop quartet into his 1911 opera Treemonisha. The genre gradually faded into obscurity in the 1920s, although barbershop-style harmonies remained in evidence in a cappella forms of traditional black gospel. Vocal Spectrum won the BHS International Championship for quartets in 2006. The group is known for its tight ringing harmonies and wide range of tones. Boston Common won the 1980 SPEBSQSA International Championship. The Great Northern Union, based in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, consistent top-ten finisher and nine-time International Chorus Medalists.
