* When the American Federation of Musicians went on strike in 1942-44, the record labels initially hoped that their stockpile of songs they rush-recorded the month before the strike began would last them through the strike, but it ended up lasting much longer than they anticipated, so they started to record their vocalists accompanied by vocal groups acting as the "orchestra", taking advantage of the fact that vocalists were not AFM members. A notable example is Music/FrankSinatra, who had the bad fortune to start his solo career right in the middle of the strike: his first few singles with Creator/ColumbiaRecords were recorded with a vocal group called the Bobby Tucker Singers and the label reissued a 1939 recording he did with Harry James' band. His legions of fans didn't mind, however, as most of the a capella tracks, as well as the reissue, made the hit parade.
** The AFM went on another strike in 1948, but this time they were more lenient, allowing the usage of "non-serious" musical instruments such as ukuleles, harmonicas and toy xylophones in recording sessions. The "vocal group as orchestra" trick was still often used however.

* While Music/{{NSYNC}} were more famous as a BoyBand, their ability to perform a cappella in five-part harmony is their musical genesis and remains their point of pride. Hell, their name comes from the fact that they could sing a cappella in harmony. Unaccompanied numbers include "I Thought She Knew" from their second album, ''No Strings Attached'', and "O Holy Night" for their Christmas album. In addition, they contributed an a cappella version of "When You Wish Upon a Star" for the [=DisneyMania=] CD series and have performed "The Star-Spangled Banner" for the 2000 World Series and 2002 Winter Olympics as well as an a cappella tribute to Music/TheBeeGees for the 2003 Grammys.
