"For a good 30 years it was impossible to find anything by the Andrews Sisters in record stores. Then MCA did an anthology and POW what an explosion. Now, 50 years after the Andrews' heydey, virtually every record store has an Andrews Sisters SECTION. In their years with Decca, Patty, Maxene and Laverne recorded every kind of song imaginable and it's amazing how well it all holds up. Their records percolate, carbonate, sparkle. Their musicianship and blend was amazing--they worked very hard on every vocal arrangement they ever did--and their arranger Vic Shoen was brilliant in fashioning accompaniments which actually let the Sisters perform a capella with instrumental accents between the lines (on ballads the usual accompanying orchestrations were used). Patty Andrews has one of the best voices of all time in pop music and actually Maxene and Laverne were lead singers, too, but the wise decision was to establish and nurture a distinctive, consistent sound for the public to indentify. Patty recorded excellent solos, very different from the group's fare, mostly serious, deep ballads. Maxene recorded an excellent solo album and Laverne could have done one. This collection serves as a great introduction to a body of work unsurpassed and still thoroughly enjoyable."
A Wonderful Collection

"I first encountered The Andrews Sisters in Abbott and Costello's "BUCK PRIVATES", which featured the energetic BOOGIE WOOGIE BUGLE BOY and BOUNCE ME BROTHER WITH A SOLID FOUR, both of which are included in this sparkling must-have CD.
The Andrews Sisters managed to be so unswervingly upbeat through such an uncertain period in American history. Their joyful enthusiasm shines in this collection of some of their most popular songs. It is no wonder they were wildly popular with American servicemen, and their positive energy is so relevant now at this period in our history.
I cannot listen to this collection without tapping my feet, moving my torso and singing along! If you are in the mood for a good, fun listening experience, this CD is for you!"
This is one of my very favorite CD's

"If you don't alreay own this. You have no idea what you are missing. A couple of my favorites on this cd are 'Beat me Daddy 8 to the Bar' and 'Corns for my Country' two songs I had never heard until I bought this cd. I bought the cd for 'Dont Sit Under the Apple Tree' and 'Boogie Woodgie Bugle Boy'. Those 4 songs are great. Another great song on this cd is 'Rum and Coca-Cola'."
