The Andrews Sisters emerged from Minneapolis to become the most popular female vocal group of the entire pre-1955 era. Born to Greek/Norwegian parents the sisters became the first female group to score a million selling disc with Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen in 1938. Led by Patty, the trio appeared in many 1940s movies, and their unmistakable sound helped define the wartime era.

By the mid-1950s the sisters had recorded over 400 songs achieving six chart toppers and countless gold discs. There was nothing that the sisters could not do - starting their career with an adaptation of a Yiddish melody and moving on to tropical tunes, musical comedy numbers, C&W, gospel hymns and even Hawaiian music. Their hundreds of hits are well represented on various compilation CDs so we have featured the more hard-to-find recordings. The sisters also recorded with other popular artists of the day such as Bing Crosby, Dick Haymes and Dan Dailey. Some of their duets are included here making their debut appearance on CD.

Youngest sister Patty always sang lead on their recordings but she also had a successful career in her own right and some of her solo efforts are heard here - I'll Walk Alone, Our Love Is Here To Stay and her collaboration with Dick Haymes, I Ought To Know More About You.

The longevity and continuing popularity of the Andrews Sisters can be attributed to the unmistakable sound of their punchy and swinging harmonies. When spirits desperately needed uplifting during the war, the sisters provided a cheery alternative to the record buying public. As music lovers search back though the decades discovering songs from bygone days, it is no surprise that they will continue to enjoy the music recorded by the irreplaceable and multi-talented Andrews Sisters.
