CD Reviews

Top quality 1940's music from a wonderful family
Peter Durward Harris | Leicester England | 07/27/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The six King sisters (only four of which sang together at any one time) are one of the less famous sister groups of their era, despite having a very long career. While the Andrews sisters (for example) had an easily identifiable, unique sound, the King sisters did not - their music was fairly typical of the era, so perhaps that is why their music has almost been forgotton. It should not be, because they were brilliant.The recordings selected for this excellent CD appear to date mostly from the early 1940's (judged on the sound of the band), but no dates are given for individual recordings and I'm not an expert on their music, although I do know that they started recording in the mid-thirties and continued until the late fifties.Despite not having a truly unique sound, the ladies always stamped their own identity on each song they recorded. Most of the songs here will be well known to fans of the Great American Songbook, and these versions make very enjoyable listening. I particulary like It's easy to remember, Miss Otis regrets and All of me - but the other songs are not far behind.More King sisters music on CD, please, record companies. Lots more. I'll buy it."
Makes my socks roll up and down

"Queens of Song, as with other King Sisters albums makes my socks roll up and down. They are the female Four Freshmen - or is it the other way around. Both groups are absolutely magnificent."
