Patty, Maxine and Laverne, the Andrews Sisters from Minneapolis, started their career at a young age, hitting the entertainment industry with what appeared to be overnight success, becoming the first female harmony group to sell a million-selling disc with "Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen in 1938. By the mid-1950s the sisters had recorded over 400 songs, including 6 chart toppers countless gold discs, and had appeared in numerous films. They also recorded with stars like Bing Crosby, Al Jolsen, Danny Kaye and many others. The light-hearted, energetic style of the Sisters, that helped entertain troops and cheer a nation through the dark days of WWII, is well-represented here: "The Telephone Song," "A Rainy Night in Rio," "Some Sunny Day," "I Want To Go Back To Michigan," "Baby Blues," "Dimple and Cherry Cheeks," "My Isles Of Golden Dreams" and the Hawaiian tunes "Nalani" and "Malihini Mele." There's a number of cuts by the Sisters that we've never heard before, like "I Had A Hat," "The Windmill Song," "I Ought To Know More About You," "I'm On A Seasaw Of Love," "Where Is Your Wandering Mother Tonight," the title tune and many others. All swing-band accompanied. "Music Lessons" is a fun, sassy, cleanly-remastered time capsule of one of the great female vocal swing groups of all time, singing 25 of their wonderful, little-known and rarely heard hits!
