ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The early hours of January 26th, 1994 marked a significant (if a bit groggy) opening chapter in the life of In The Buff. Dodge Rea and Curt Siffert met outside a dormitory at 2:30 in the morning to plan the acceptance rites for the other soon-to-be members. They knew that it was a common ritual for a cappella groups to go and drag new members out of bed early in the morning for a sing-in and a breakfast. But seeing that they were a new group, knew no songs, and had to pick up ten members between the two of them, they were afraid their efforts at creating a special memory for their new singing mates would be seen as little more than an out-of-tune, middle-of-the-night mugging. Especially since they were making them pay for their own eggs and coffee.

Screw it, they decided, and set out pounding on doors. And after three exhausting hours of driving through snowdrifts and sliding through icy intersections, they finally succeeded in rounding up the guys for a wholesome breakfast and an orange-juice toast to All That Might Be.

Now, we have all the makings of a cult. Bizarre rituals, mind control, and perhaps even a bit of inbreeding. We discourage association with the tone-deaf, we often sing without realizing it, and we yell out strange scat syllables when we see another member coming from across the courtyard.

The absurdity of life can sneak up behind us at the most wonderful times. One of us was told the next few years of his life would be charmed, and decided to challenge it by going after a lifelong dream. Another was drained of life and was just willing to try anything. They crossed paths, and somehow it set everything in motion. We're still not sure why all this happened, all we know is that today we are happy.

The only regret we have is that no one has yet taken us up on our long-standing trademark performance offer. For $10,000, One song. Every member. In The Buff.

Remember...it ís always better In The Buff..

Freakin' Awesome
In the Buff never disappoints! Hats off, really..the power to remake popular, well-known songs into acapella works of art is a tough thing to do. Extremely original. Good job, boys, good job.


GREAT!
Great sounds! Love it!

Valerie Olivo

Fantastic range ...
of vocals, AND styles!

Fun, upbeat, refreshing. Nothing is out of place here.

Can't wait for the next CD! Keep up the great work. Best wishes to all, ITB.

In these exceedingly-creative, tightly-intertwined and musically-insightful arrangements of pop favorites from the Kinks, the Verve Pipe, U2, Boyz II Men, Collective Soul, A-ha, Eve 6, Guster and Semisonic, the University of Colorado's favorite pop a cappella group presents its first CD available through CD Baby. Founded in 1994 and still going strong, In the Buff has become somewhat of a cult on campus and has managed to keep its strong reputation for personality, humor and top-notch vocal performance as the years have passed, as the traditions have been passed from member to member. Put on a new set of ears and re-experience some of radio's most memorable songs- as they say, it's always better In the Buff.

Great sound, smooth blend of great voices!
As soon as I heard the first song, I fell in love with the great sounds and smooth blending of these guys voices. They obviously enjoy their singing and it comes through with the energy they carry in their music. When's the next CD coming?

Fun and refreshing. Good entertainment for the whole family. Nice mix of music.
