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 McGuire Sisters : Greatest Hits

The three sisters McGuire indeed have a unity of blend hard to match among the many famous sibling groups. Their popularity was immense, and their cover versions of songs such as "Sincerely" and "Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight," (both originally sung by the Moonglows and Spaniels, respectively) placed higher on the charts than those of their progenitors; the McGuire's sound and image was considered more acceptable to white audiences. While some of the songs, like "He," don't hold up as well over time - the lyrics and orchestrations seem a bit precious - the vivacious delivery is so unabashed, the apparently innate tunefulness so exact, and the arrangements so creative that "Muskrat Ramble" and "Sugartime" leave no doubt as to why the McGuires were loved by so many.

Songlist: Sincerely, Something's Gotta Give, HE, Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight, Picnic, Muskrat Ramble, Ev'ry Day Of My Life, Sugartime, It May Sound Silly, Christmas Alphabet, May You Always, Just For Old Time's Sake

The McGuire Sisters : May You Always

"May You Always" is an all-accompanied "best of" compilation of hits by sisters Christine, Dorothy and Phyllis of Middletown, Ohio, from the albums "May You Always" and "Sugartime," released on Coral Records in 1959 and 1960. The sisters grew up in Miamisburg, OH, where their mother was an ordained minister of the First Church of Christ. They sang in church in their teen years, then in military bases and church functions, auditioned on the Arthur Godfrey show, where they were a resident attraction for seven years. Exposure on the Kate Smith Show led to a record contract with Decca/Brunswick/Coral. There are 28 songs here, most of them well-known 50s pop hits: "Since You Went Away to School," "Volare," "Ding Dong," "Summer Dreams," "Sweetie Pie," "Peace," "I'll Think of You," "One Fine Day," "Banana Split," "Forgive Me," "Kiss Them For Me," "Lovers Lullaby," "The Last Dance," "Anniversary Song," "I Love You" and "Shuffle Off to Buffalo." The sisters' voices are perfectly matched harmonically, and the songs as inspirational, funny, silly and schmaltzy as you can imagine! This is a rich, enjoyable collection from Sepia Records with beautiful album cover pix and photos of the immaculately coifed and fashion-coordinated, sweetly smiling McGuire

Songlist: May You Always, That's A Plenty, Since You Went Away To School, Do You Love Me Like You Kiss Me (Scapricciatiello), Volare (Nel Blu, Dipinto Di Blu), Ding Dong, Summer Dreams, Sweetie Pie, Peace, Achoo- Cha Cha (Gesundheit), I'll Think Of You, One Fine Day, Sugartime, Around The World, Weary Blues, Banana Split, Interlude, Forgive Me, In The Alps In The Alps In The Alps, Kiss Them For Me, Shame, Livin' Dangerously, Lovers Lullaby, The Last Dance, Nine O'Clock, Anniversary Song, I Love You, Shuffle Off To Buffalo
