"Wikipedia : "The Puppini Sisters are a musical trio specializing in 1940's style vocal 'close harmony' music. Members consist of Italian Marcella Puppini and English Stephanie O'Brien and Kate Mullins". Every now and then something comes along that causes a massive "why on earth didn't I think of that?" reaction. Something original and quirky, that fills a gaping void and that appeals to just about everyone. Dressed with 1940's glamour The Puppini Sisters perform tongue-in-cheek classics in three-part harmony. With the current vogue being for all things '70s and '80s , surely there can't be room for yet more reworking of past favourites? There is, especially when it's as inventive, colourful and downright fun as The Puppini Sisters' debut "Betcha Bottom Dollar". Marcella Puppini, Stephanie O'Brien and Kate Mullins are delivering a dark and camp translation of classics from relatively recent eras - and even further back. Their influences are worn clearly on their immaculately tailored sleeves, from The Andrews and Boswell Sisters to the Busby Berkley numbers so beloved of Hollywood more than half-a-century ago. Close harmonies? Jaunty upbeat arrangements? Tight band? Definitely YES ! The trio traffics in The Andrews Sisters' sound, which it does extremely well, giving it the extra push needed to grow it beyond parody or imitation. That saves this from being groan-inducing and "cutsie", especially given the novelty act-like covers of "Heart of Glass", and "I Will Survive". though we have to admit they too are enjoyable, as are the unlikely takes on Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights" and The Smiths' "Panic". You see all sixteen tracks on "Betcha Bottom Dollar" are beautifully crafted like a classic mix of jazz and the Andrews Sisters. It doesn't matter if its their interpretation of "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy (from Company B)" or the more modern songs on here like "Panic", "Wuthering Heights" or "Heart Of Glass", they all get the treatment and come up smiling at the other end. These 1940's influenced gals are gonna be massive but don't let that put you off, everyone needs a bit of fun in their lives and these talented ladies will certainly help to inject that.

"I am flabbergasted!! This album is too too great. I stumbled upon The Puppini Sisters by accident this past weekend driving out on Long Island listening to the great WHLI that plays this type of music. With the windows down, you hear some, but not all. While exiting the Expressway, I heard the harmonies, so thought, "Oh, Andrews Sisters." I stopped at the light and realized they were singing Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive". Boing!! I got in touch with the DJ and he pointed me in the right direction. After doing Music Sampler here, it was a must have!
It brings back a bit of the past, but something we definitely need in this day and age. Mixing the old songs with newer songs done in the old fashioned way makes a great way to show off the girls' talents. The harmonies are brilliant. I'm sure the Andrews Sisters are smiling down from where they are. The best thing is "you understand all the words". Compared to a lot of the garbage that comes out these days, there is something to be said for absolute quality. This is it. Wunderbar!!"

"My first CD purchase from Amazon could not have been better. Another British invasion by 3 sisters that brings back what most songs are missing these days --- harmony."

"It is rare that you enjoy EVERY title on an album. The Puppini Sisters chose delightful songs that showcase their impressive talent. I recommend this work highly to anyone who enjoys music from the 40s or music of that style."
