The blending of the tones is an attraction for the singers. “Love Me and the World is Mine” is rather a poor number for concert work, and the baritone gives the harmony a punch now and then during it. Mr. Webb sings “Sally-Alley” with his lyric tenor voice, and the reception the men would have received had they been allowed to give their proper act may be imagined from the reception they received as it was.
Someone, perhaps under a misapprehension, nearly spoiled a first-class singing set ordering the Big City Quartet to refrain from appearing in comedy makeup during the week. No one could imagine Bob Webb, the stout member, as anything but a comedian on the stage, but regardless of the change the quartet won out.
