" Żegnaj" is the Polish word for "good-bye". We're at the end of this challenge and it has been great!
I have looked everywhere for a clear recording of "the perfect quartet" singing Goodbye, World, Goodbye. I have not been able to find one. However, I did find this later version of The Statesmen Quartet. I believe that it is Hovie Lister on the piano as he was one of the very last remaining Statesmen. I can very clearly hear Jake Hess as lead. I do not know who the others are in this version.
Goodbye, World, Goodbye
Now, as I type this in April 2016, all of the greats of the perfect quartet are singing around that Heavenly piano, all together again.
Denver Crumpler 1912-1957

Rest in peace, guys! I can't wait to hear you in person!
