The Mills Brothers (4) were favorites of mine back in the vinyl record days. I have turned one of their vinyl albums into a CD and now I have a digitally re-mastered CD of their best known hits. True harmony of voices from the 1940s.

A nice walk down memory lane.

"I have always loved the sound of the Mills Brothers. Whether 4 brothers, 3 brothers and a Dad, or just a trio, their harmonies and swing style can not be beat. I was blessed to see them in concert in the mid 1970's (when they were probably pushing 70) and they still sounded great. This package contains some of the essential Mills Brothers hits. Check out Opus One if you've never heard it. Backed by a large orchestra it really swings. Paper Doll is also a great work as well. The problem with this package (as with almost any "greatest hits" package) is you don't get to see enough of the versitality that they were known for. Also you don't get the early stuff, when they were known to provide their own instument sounds using nothing more than their voices. Overall a good addition to any collection, just don't stop looking for more. There is way too much great Mills Brothers songs still out there."

"I had not thought of the Mills Brothers in years; many years. Then one night while watching a television show ("The Others"), I kept hearing this wonderful music in the background. At one point one of the characters picked up an album from a table and it said Mills Brothers on the cover. I went straight to Amazon.com and purchased this CD. I am not only not disappointed, I am thrilled! What a rediscovery! This is one very excellent CD!"
