Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta) (May include reviews from Early Reviewer Rewards Program)
Generally, if you like the Mills Brothers' early material ("Swing Is The Thing", and the sides they cut with Louis Armstrong for instance), you'll find this stuff very entertaining. Ahead of their time, their fast-banter scat singing presaged Bop stylists (ex. Lambert, Hendricks and Ross) by almost a decade. The ballads are typical of the period, and while not the highlight of the program they do serve to round it out.
Small caveat: the sides presented here are from private collections, and not from RCA's vaults. Surface noise has been reduced nicely, but there's some needle wear on the louder passages.
I was recommended this music a few years ago because the person thought that since I liked the Beach Boys I would like this. Well, I don't exactly see how they pieced that together- although there is a lot of heart in this music. I don't mind carrying on that idea though... If you like the Beach Boys... You definetly like this!
