The Lennon Sisters

Lennon Sisters

Female Vocal Jazz Quartet from Branson, MO.

They were a young, crisply harmonic quartet of sisters who called themselves simply The Lennon Sisters and they made their singing TV debut in 1955 on Lawrence Welk's old-fashioned variety show with sixteen-year-old Dianne (Dee Dee), fourteen-year-old Peggy, twelve-year-old Kathy, and nine-year-old Janet Lennon on board. Their a cappella version of "He" proved a scene-stealing success and America fell hard for these four attractive little innocents and their angelic blend. Welk professionally adopted the girls and The Lennon Sisters became regulars on his show every Saturday night for the next thirteen years. Dubbed "America's Sweethearts of Song," they recorded their first of many albums entitled "Let's Get Acquainted" in May of 1957. So popular were the girls that they became a merchandising factory with coloring books, lunch boxes and doll collections all doing very brisk business.

Lennon Sisters : Christmas With The Lennon Sisters : 1 CD : 8724

Lennon Sisters : Christmas With The Lennon Sisters

Recorded in 1959 this is the Sister's first Christmas recording and one they have fond memories of. The lovely cover photo of the fresh-faced teens in velvet red dresses is of the age of when "Little Janet" singing "I Saw Mama Kissin Santa Claus" was a highlight of the legendary Lawrence Welk Christmas shows. "Winter Wonderland" was one of the very first songs the girls sang for Welk at a charity event and which led to their later frequent appearances on his show. This reissue is a classic and adds a wonderful touch of nostaligia to the season.

Songlist: Rudolf The Red-Nosed Reindeer, The Little Drummer Boy, Christmas Island, Adeste Fideles, I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, Silent Night, White Christmas, Jingle Bells, Away In A Manger, Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, Winter Wonderland, O Little Town Of Bethlehem, Joy To The World, I'll Be Home For Christmas

Lennon Sisters : Favorite Songs From the Lennon Sisters Hour Vol 1    Out of Print

From their first 1955 appearance on the Lawrence Welk Show as 9- (Janet) to 16-year olds (Dee Dee) singing an a cappella "He," America fell in love with the 4 Lennon Sisters. For 13 years of Saturday nights, they appeared on the Welk show before, as grown women, they finally broke with him to do their own "The Lennon Sisters Hour" from 1969 to 1970. "Favorite" is the first of 4 CDs of "best of" songs from this show there are 10 songs, and a lot of warm memories for Lennon fans here. "May We Wish You Well," the show's theme song, the sweet "Simple Life," "Softly," "Love In A Home," "Can't Take That Away From Me," and "Bless This House." We particularly liked the production medley "One Way Ticket/Grass Is Always Greener," the jazzy "Pennies from Heaven," "Let Go," and "Walt Disney Medley" (the Sisters' "Hi to You" and "Mickey Mouse Mambo," from a guest spot on the Mickey Mouse Club, was their first recording). America's Angels in top form!

Songlist: May We Wish You Well, Simple Life, Softly, One Way Ticket / Grass is Always Greener, Pennies from Heaven, Love In A Home, Can't Take That Away From Me, Let Go, Walt Disney Medley, Bless This House

Lennon Sisters : Songs Of Faith and Inspiration

When the Lawrence Welk Show was no longer on prime time, The Lennon Sisters didn't stop singing, or, judging by the cover of this "22 Songs," looking beautiful! This is another of those wonderful compilations, where you get 2 albums worth of songs on a single regular-priced CD, issued on Ranwood Records, "A Welk Music Group Company," in the early 80s. The butter-smooth, sweet-harmonied sound of the Sisters hasn't faded a bit on these 22 lightly piano-accompanied songs. "Walk With Me," "Softly and Tenderly," "How Great Thou Art" (a personal favorite), "Ave Maria," "You'll Never Walk Alone," "The Old Rugged Cross," "Battle Hymn of the Republic," "Holy, Holy, Holy," "Faith of Our Fathers"--each song is a perfect gem, sung by the legendary Lennon Sisters. Enjoy and be inspired!

Songlist: Walk With Me, Softly And Tenderly, How Great Thou Art, I Believe, Ave Maria, Were You There?, You'll Never Walk Alone, Wedding Song, Jesus You Are My Friend, The Old Rugged Cross, Battle Hymn Of The Republic, My Tribute, Soul Of My Savior, Holy, Holy, Holy, Let Us Break Bread, In This Very Room, Amazing Grace, Unfailing Love, Old Time Religion, Eternal Life, Faith Of Our Fathers, The Lord's Prayer
