The Puppini sisters' debut album was a revelation, as it was so different from anything else around at the time. I knew what to expect of this album so that lessened its impact, but it is still a brilliant album that maintains the standard of its predecessor. This one contains five original songs - one each by Kate and Stephanie, with three by Marcella. The remaining seven songs are covers and although I enjoy the original material (especially I can`t believe I`m not a millionaire), it is the cover versions that particularly appeal to me.
Who else but the Puppini sisters could record an album featuring songs by the Bangles (Walk like an Egyptian), Louis Armstrong (We have all the love in the world), Beyonce (Crazy in love), Barry Manilow (Could it be magic) and Duke Ellington (It don`t mean a thing if it ain`t got that swing)? None of them are faithful covers as the sisters interpret them in their own way, although they are still recognizable. They shoved their love for the music of the Andrews sisters on their debut album, but the only song of theirs represented here is Don't sit under the apple tree. Even that song was a bigger hit at the time for Glenn Miller than it was for the Andrews sisters, but again, the Puppini sisters do things a little differently.
The Puppini sisters may not yet be millionaires, but if they are able to sustain the quality of their first three albums with subsequent releases, they have a better chance than most of achieving that objective.
