I loved The Ames Brothers music,and watched brother Ed on tv for many years.... wonderful voices,glad we have the memories.....r.i.p
I remember them from the mid 1940's on from when I was about 5-7 years old, and I was intoxicated by their beautiful harmonic music and songs!!! I sure miss hearing them!! I'm almost 72 now, but still remember the thrill I got listening to them, and Mingo on TV!! I sure miss all of them!!
I just discovered your music with your brothers. What a great sound you produced. Thank you for leaving such a great sound for generations to come. You are missed.
i loved your voice most. i'll always listen for you. such talent.
As a kid growing up in rural South Mississippi, I became a tremendous fan of the Ames Brothers. Around 1950, my dad bought a beautiful record player and I saved up some money and bought an Ames Brothers album. WOW! Such beautiful harmonies and voices. I formed a group in high school called The Cee Jay's (Clark's and Joneses). We competed on the Ted Mack Original Amateur in 1963. My inspiration came from groups like the amazing Ames Brothers. I'm still out there doing it and enjoying it as an avocation!
Condolences to the Ames Family. We love you! We'll miss you Joe. Bill Clark. www.billclarklive.com
To the family of Joe Ames you have my sincerest sympathy. I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I hope you can find comfort in the Bible. At Isaiah chapter 33 verse 24 it says "no resident will say I am sick." Please take the time to read these verses.
The memories were great.
Although I didn't find out until today of the loss of Joe Ames, my heart and prayers go out to his family. Thank you to all the Ames brothers for years of wonderful music. I still listen to one of their CDs every day, either the Ames Brothers or Ed Ames. Not a day goes by that I don't keep their songs close to my heart.
Goodbye Joe. You are missed. I grew up loving you and your brothers, you helped me through a bad childhood and I still listen to the Ames Brothers every day. How relaxing they are and how I miss them all. Thank you for being a part of my life for so many years. Some people come along to make other lives special and bearable. You guys were those people, Gene, Joe, Vic and Ed.
Thank you, Joe, for bringing your daughter "Jo-Ellen" into this world to be my dear friend. Rest in peace. May Jo-Ellen and her family find comfort in their loving memories. You were a lucky man to have music in your life, but even luckier to have Jo-Ellen! :)
Thanks so very much for your kind wishes and remembrance.
I enjoyed many of the Ames Brothers' recordings in the fifties. But I only learned a few hours ago that one of my all time favorites was their recording. I only heard "China Doll" played on juke boxes a few times but its melody and a few of its lyrics have stayed with me almost hauntingly since April 1960. In the process of making the discovery that it was an Ames Brothers recording, I also learned the sad news of Joe Ames' death. It didn't get the coverage he deserved.
What a beautiful time to grow up and to hear the rich voices of the Ames Brothers. A gentle "goodbye".
the Ames Bros. were a real inspiration to me and my three bros. We never made it big, but sure had fun harmonizing. Thank you so much.
While in high school at Laguna Beach, California my friends and I loved listening to Joe and his brothers. One of our favorites was the song "You, You, You". A true classic song which many of us enjoyed slow dancing with our girlfriends. Still one of my favorites. Thanks to Joe and his brothers for those beautiful songs we enjoyed in our "Wonder Years".
The Ames Brothers were my favorite Group.They played the Holiday House Supper Club In Monroeville Pa Will Miss Joe Ames
Thank you for sharing your talent. You will be missed.
Always enjoyed the Ames brothers singing. Rest in Peace Joe.
My deepest sincere condolences to the entire Ames family on the passing of Joe Ames. A wonderful voice! I grew up with the Ames Brothers music, thoroughly enjoying and memorizing many songs. A sad loss, May God Bless all his family.
THE AMES BROTHERS -----THE HILLTOPPERS------THE FOUR ACES----- LUCKY ME TO HAVE BEEN A PART OF THAT ERA----YES, DAMN LUCKY, AND I AM VERY GRATEFUL....AND I THANK YOU FOR THE WONDERFUL MUSIC.
Sincere sympathy goes to a family of such great talent. He will be missed by many.
my deepest sympathy to the family
of joe ames. the ames brothers
were a great singing group.
may God bless you.
My condolences to the Ames family on the loss of a great singer. I really enjoyed listening to the Ames Brothers sing when I was growing up in the 50's.
I just want to say that there was no group of the '60s that I enjoyed anymore than The Ames Brothers. At one time I think my family owned most of their hits and or albumns. Joe and his brothers music will always be apart of my whole psychic. I can still recite their song of "I saw Esau sitting on a see-saw" by heart. Thanks for sharing Joe and his entire family with us for a little while. My prayers go out to his entire family.
Oh Lord, i grew up in the 50's and the music was awesome. We could understand it and know the words. You were one of my favorite groups and i have your albums. You will never be forgotten. Now you sing for the Lord. Rest in peace.
Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.
joe, god we are going to miss you. but look at the wonderful life you had , and all of the music you shared with us all over the years. now you will be singing back up for the angles. ild, sebring florda. god bless you.
"You,You,You", one of your great hit songs, was always included on my DJ programs at my small hometown radio station where I worked my way through college back in the 1950s. The unique sound of the Ames Brothers will forever be embetted in my memories. May you rest in peace with God. My prayers go out to your families.
SO MANY MEMORIES FOR ME. LOVED THE AMES BROTHERS. THEY WERE "ONE OF A KIND", SUCH WONDERUL HARMONY. MY PRAYERS GO OUT TO THE FAMILY OF JOE AMES.
