"I'm a younger Andrews Sisters fan. I was first turned onto them when I heard "Rum and Coca Cola" - did I want to hear more after that! This is NOT the great version I heard!!! In the 50's they re-recorded their hits for Capitol and 3 of them are here - Rum and Coca Cola, I'll Be With You In Apple Blossom Time, and Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy (the rest, however are originals, Begin the Beguine is super.) You've never heard these songs until you've heard the originals. I'd stay away from Captiol CD's or compilation CD's which include Capitol re-recordings of the Andrews like this one. I recommend "The Andrews Sisters - Their All-Time Greated Hits" (MCA) - sold here at Amazon too - it is packed with all original versions and has really great liner notes. The original Rum & Coca Cola and Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy are pure magic!"
Now THIS is what I call MUSIC!!!

"I just bought this CD a few days ago, and have fallen in love wih it. Before buying this CD, I had really only heard Bei Mir Bist Du Schon a few times. Whoever wants to listen to some great songs, buy this album! Don't Fence Me In, Bei Mir Bist Du Schon, and Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy are incredible. Too bad the music of today isn't this great."

"The Andrew Sisters are the best singers I have ever heard. My friends think I'm weird because I listen to "old music" instead of the "new age music", but I don't care. This is the best CD I have ever listened to. It's Terrific!!!"
