Music by Don Raye and Hughie Prince

"Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" was a major hit song for The Andrews Sisters and an iconic World War II tune. It can be considered an early jump blues jazz recording.[citation needed] The song is ranked No. 6 on Songs of the Century. Bette Midler's 1972 recording of the song reached the top ten on the U.S. pop singles chart.

    Release Date: 1941

The Andrews Sisters : The Golden Age - Box Set

The three beautiful, talented Andrews Sisters had the sound, look and attitude that defined the Swing Era, in our minds one of the most entertaining and creative periods in American music. Jasmine Records obviously agreed with us, and set out to put together a comprehensive collection of every song the prolific Sisters ever recorded, an amazing 101 tunes on 4, (yes, 4!) CDs. The first two contain all the American charts hits, and the other two contain many rarely heard songs which have never been reissued on CD. 13 tunes sung with Bing Crosby, like "Yodelin' Jive," "Victory Polka," "Don't Fence Me In," "The Three Caballeros" and "South America Take It Away;" 3 with Danny Kaye, like "Civilisation-Bongo, Bongo, Bongo" and "Put 'Em in a Box, Tie 'Em with a Ribbon;" "Yipsee-I-O" with Carmen Miranda, 4 with Dick Haymes, and others like Dan Dailey and Red Foley. We found the previously unreleased stuff like "A Zoot Suit (for my Sunday Gal)" and "The Mambo Man" particularly wonderful and fascinating. A gorgeous, generous, monumental, always entertaining collection! A must for every collector and a great gift for any fan of this legendary group whose music is still popular, for good reason, all these years later.

Songlist: Disc One:, Bei Mir Bist Du Schon, Tu-Li-Tulip Time, Lullaby To A Little Jitterbug, Hold Tight, Hold Tight, The Beer Barrel Polka (Roll Out The Barrel), Well, All Right, Yodelin' Jive w/ Bing Crosby, Say Si Si, The Woodpecker Song, Ferryboat Serenade, Beat Me Daddy, Eight To The Bar, Scrub Me Mama, With A Boogie Beat, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, I'll Be With You In Apple Blossom Time, Aurora, The Shrine of St. Cecilia, Three Little Sisters, Strip Polka, Pistol Pakin' Mama w/ Bing Crosby, Victory Polka w/ Bing Crosby, Shoo-Shoo Baby, Straighten Up And Fly Right, Is You Is, Or Is You Ain't My Baby? w/ Bing Crosby, (There'll Be A) Hot Time In The Town Of Berlin w/ Bing Crosby , Don't Fence Me In w/ Bing Crosby, Disc Two:, Rum And Coca-Cola, Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive w/ Bing Crosby, The Three Caballeros w/ Bing Crosby, and more

The Andrews Sisters : Apple Blossom Time : 00  1 CD : 5286

The Andrews Sisters : Apple Blossom Time

Part of the ASV "Living Era" series, "Apple Blossom Time" contains 25 favorites from the female group that will forever define the harmony sound of World War II. Hits such as "Rum and Cola," "Don't Fence Me In" (with Bing Crosby), "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" and the title track were standard issue back then, and Maxene, Laverne and Patricia captured the spirit of the nation. Their balmy, lilting style (reminiscent of the Boswell Sisters before them), can be saucy one moment ("Strip Polka," "Shoo, Shoo Baby") or sweetly romantic ("Near You," "Toolie Oolie Doolie") with equal charm. Accompanied, with the big band swing arrangements popular at the time, though on a few tracks - "Apple Blossom Time" in particular - the instruments are muted and almost insignificant.

Songlist: I'll Be With You In Apple Blossom Time, Joseph, Joseph!, Ti-Pi-Tin, Begin the Beguine, Oh Johnny, Oh Johnny, Oh!, Say "Si, Si" (Para Vigo Me Voy), The Woodpecker Song, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, The Shrine of St Cecilia, Three Little Sisters, Strip Polka, Pistol Packin' Mama, Shoo, Shoo, Baby, Straighten Up and Fly Right, Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby?, Don't Fence Me In, Rum and Coca-Cola, Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive, Along the Navajo Trail, South America, Take It Away, Near You, Civilization (Bongo Bongo Bongo), Toolie Oolie Doolie (the Yodel Polka), Underneath the Arches

Andrews Sisters / McGuire Sisters : Sing The Big Hits - Back to Back

Certainly the two best-known and best-loved "sister" groups of the 1940s and 50s, the Andrews and McGuire Sisters just kept cranking out the top-40 hits. And what hits they were - what can you say about a song like "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," other than that they should have given the Andrews Sisters heavy gold medals for helping win World War II with it? And "Beat Me Daddy Eight to the Bar," one of the most quintessential and definitive songs of the Swing era. If you're looking for songs that define the glamorous, innocent romanticism of the 1950s, wouldn't the McGuire's "Sincerely," "Sugartime," "Something's Got to Give" and "May You Always" be at or near the top of your list? Ten hits (all band accompanied): "Well All Right (Tonight's the Night)," "Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen," "I'll Be With You In Apple Blossom Time," "Muskrat Ramble" - these songs were huge, and they're all here for you to remember and enjoy!

Songlist: Sincerely, Sugartime, Somethings Gotta Give, May You Always, Beat Me Daddy Eight To The Bar, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Well All Right, Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen, I'll Be With You In Apple Blossom Time, Muskrat Ramble

The Puppini Sisters : Betcha Bottom Dollar : 00  1 CD

The Puppini Sisters : Betcha Bottom Dollar

From the first strains of the opening track, "Sisters," it's clear that Betcha Bottom Dollar is not a typical debut album. But then the Puppini Sisters are not a typical pop act, at least not in the 21st century. Their close, three-part harmonies are reminiscent of the vocal groups of the 1930s and 1940s, and particularly the Andrews Sisters. But rather than sounding like an anachronism, the Puppini Sisters merely demonstrate the timelessness of some of these songs. Betcha Bottom Dollar is fresh, fun and vibrant, blowing the dust off of cobwebby classics like "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" and "Mr. Sandman". Elsewhere, they also put their own unique stamp on more recent hits, with varying results. While Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights" and Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" fail to get things swinging, Blondie's "Heart of Glass" and the Smiths' "Panic" are both injected with a fresh new (old?) sound. Much credit must also be given to producer Benoit Charest, who manages to employ a whole host of instrumentation and orchestration, whilst never forgetting to put the voices of the Puppini Sisters front and centre. It might be easy to dismiss the Puppini Sisters' debut as another novelty album, but their intentions and love for the style--like their voices themselves--are crystal clear.

Songlist: Sisters, Mr.Sandman, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Java Jive, Bei Mir Bist Du Sehon, Wuthering Heights, Jeepers Creepers, I Will Survive, Tu Quo Fa L'americano, Heart Of Glass, Sway, Danie, Heebie Jeebies, In Mood

Three Hits and A Miss : Mixing It Up : 00  1 CD

Three Hits and A Miss : Mixing It Up

Minnesota-based Swing/Pop/Jazz quartet 3 Hits and a Miss, founded in 1995, really come into their vocal power with "Mixing," their third excellent CD. Return with us now to the 1940s (covers of the Turtles' "Happy Together," the 5th Dimensions' "Up, Up and Away/Aquarius," the Mamas and the Papas' "California Dreamin'" and Lennon/McCartney's "Nowhere Man" and "Got to Get You Into My Life" notwithstanding)--this is wonderfully crafted "high-fidelity" harmony. The afore-mentioned covers fit in beautifully because they have the kind of beautiful melodies that could have been hits in the 40s. All accompanied, these 12 hits just keep on comin': "Bounce Me Brother with a Solid Four/Four," "Pop Goes the Weasel," "Goody Goody," "Glow Worm," "Dream" and bonus track, Woody Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land." This CD is big fun from start to finish, and 3 Hits and a Miss are having it--they prove that they can sing with the best of any musical period!

Songlist: Bounce Me Brother With A Solid Four (Raye, Prince/Davis), Nowhere Man (Lennon McCartney), Happy Together (Bonner, Gordon), Pop Goes the Weasel, Goody Goody (Malneck, Mercer), Glow Worm (Incke, Robinson, Mercer), Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, Psychadelic Flashback, Up, Up and Away / Aquarius (Webb/McDermott, Ragni, Rado), California Dreamin' (Phillips, Gilliam), Dream (Mercer), Got to Get You Into My Life, This Land Is Your Land (Guthrie)
