"Exceptional nostalgia & pure Andrew Sisters"
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 04/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"What can one say when you hear the opening to "BOOGIE WOOGIE BUGLE BOY", which was introduced in an "Abbott & Costello" war film in 1941, exceptional nostalgia and pure Andrew Sisters, with that unmistakable harmony. The sisters, La Verne, Maxene and Patty were all born within seven years of each other in Mound, Minnesota in the 1910's. And how about "BEAT ME DADDY, EIGHT TO THE BAR" (1940), not to mention "BEI MIR BIST DU SCHON" (1937) both very distinctive and danceable with the "Swing Craze" in mind. The stand out - "AC-CENT-TCHU-ATE THE POSTIVE" (1944) a Johnny Mercer tune, with the crooner Bing Crosby. An era to end all era's, we still reminisce about that period in American History and the music that will never fade away.MCA Records has done a "Bang-up Job", letting us in and recreating memories of those wonderful gals - THE ANDREW SISTERS!Total Time: 35:48 on 12 Tracks/ MCA Records - 08811 112 230 2 (2000)"
Greatest FEMALE Vocal Group Ever

"When I was a kid, Bette Midler had a huge hit single, BOOGIE WOOGIE BUGLE BOY, and this was my introduction to The ANDREWS SISTERS. Thank you both, BETTE & LINDA RONSTADT for exploring the past and reviving what so many many of us, your audience, missed as a result of being born decades later. The ANDREWS SISTERS were part of the music my parents heard when they were young, and what great singers, REAL SINGERS(!), my parents were blessed to have entertain them, as well as inspire the singers of my generation! THE ANDREWS SISTERS are definitely, by far, the greatest female vocal group of all time, not only in Pop, but also classic JAZZ! Those beautifully sung harmonies and impassioned solo performances are unequaled in all of music history. These girls out perform the Supremes! I would also like to know, since the Andrews Sisters recorded over 1800 songs during their career, why are only the same two to four dozen songs only available and was there ever a Box Set? There is a bit Pop, Jazz, Swing, boogie woogie style rock and roll here way before Elvis even recorded any, just plenty of great music to entertain anybody for hours. The ANDREWS were not only an institution of entertainment during the WWII era, they were also ahead of their time, as many of their recordings demonstrate. Gorgeous ballads, mid tempo floor shufflers, and lots of upbeat swinging dance numbers here! The ANDREWS' vocals are always center & up front on all their recordings and they sound perfectly mixed above the bright horns and inspired orchestra players. WOW - 60 years ago and they sound better than current Top 40 radio artists! Getcha an ANDREWS SISTERS, Louis Armstrong, Louis Prima, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, etc. CDs - fill your multidisc player, hit the "shuffle button" and have yourself a great BLAST of FUN!"
SWINGDOM'S TRIO INSTITUTION

"All the great hits are here in this magnificent collection from the late 30's and 40's with Patti, Maxene and LaVerne singing "Rum and Coca Cola", "Shoo Shoo, Baby" (with Mitchell Ayres Orch.) "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" "Apple Blossom Time" and of course that novel little ditty from 1939 "Hold Tight" with Jimmy Dorsey. These Greek-Norwegian gals grew up in Minnesota and admired and copied the great Boswell Sisters; Patti said "The Boswells were the best, more than 50 years later, I still think they're the best". Good as Connee, Vet and Martha were, their record sales and popularity didn't come close to the Andrews! These sides are especially good to hear today because of the Swing Revival; these three canaries really knew how to swing it - and how!"
