Born into a musical family of nine brothers and sisters, The Dinning Sisters were twins Jean and Ginger and sister Lou (Lou was replaced in 1946 by Jayne Bundesen, who was replaced by Tootsie Dinning in 1952). Showing more than a little chutzpah, and without much experience, the young ladies left their Oklahoma town and traveled to Chicago, where they tried out for NBC radio. They were hired and remained for seven years, and were ultimately the highest paid radio act in the Windy City. This accompanied collection begins with two cuts from their 1943 Capitol Records sessions, "Brazil" and "Sentimental Gentleman From Georgia," the latter with a whimsical spoken interlude on the trouble with men reminiscent of the Boswell Sisters. "The Way You Look Tonight" is breathy and imploring, "Love On A Greyhound Bus" relentlessly cheerful, transporting us to the post-war era. "My Adobe Hacienda" and the previously-unreleased "Santa Catalina" feature rollicking accordion. Twenty-five songs in all, including their most famous hit, "Buttons and Bows."
