The Golden Age of THE ANDREWS SISTERS - 101 Classic Original Recordings on 4 CDs
£18.99
CD / Product Number: JASBOX7-4

The Andrews Sisters came on the scene in 1938 with Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen, and closed out their era (early fifties) with the dreamy balled, I Can Dream Can't I? and the monster smashes in between with Rum and Coca-Cola and Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy to name just a few. Their blissful passion shines on through in this 4 disc collection of some of their most popular tunes. Disc One and Two are all their Top Ten hits in chronological order. Disc three and four are full of rare tunes that are also quite enjoyable. You can't listen to these tracks and not tap your feet and sing along. The Andrews Sisters recorded every kind of song imaginable and it's amazing how well it all holds up after all these years. The sisters musicianship and blend was truly amazing and the Vic Shoen orchestra was brilliant in styling accompaniments which actually let the Sisters perform a capella with only bass and drums underneath them, with instrumental inflections between vocals lines. The sound quality is AMAZING. This Andrews Sisters collection serves as a good introduction to an amazing body of work unsurpassed and still thoroughly enjoyable in the 21st century.
