Perfect Harmony-Singing Groups of the 20th Century

 
9780984787814: Perfect Harmony-Singing Groups of the 20th Century

If you ask anyone under the age of forty to identify the singing groups of the 20th Century-The Mills Brothers, Boswell or Andrews Sisters, and you may toss in the Pied Pipers, Modernaires, Ink Spots or the King Sisters and the McGuire Sisters, you would undoubtedly earn a long, blank stare of wonderment. This book is their story. Each of these groups and many more carved out a musical career of great stature and popularity over many years, reaching back a few generations during what was know to all as the Big Band Era and Swing Era, at a time when the Great American Songbook was in its infancy, and has just settled down long enough to be defined. For those of you who were fortunate enough to have lived through a part of this era and had witnessed one or more of their performances on the stage, on film, radio and television, and for those of you who didn't, please stand by, you're ON THE AIR....this is their story as never told before in one book written by Richard Grudens, whom Kathryn Crosby, the wife of Bing Crosby describes as ;The Musical Historian of our time. Without him, the magic would be lost forever. We all owe him a debt that we can never repay.

Review:

Hi, everyone! My friend of over 30 years, Richard Grudens, who has written a lot about the Andrews Sisters in books and articles over the years, and even wrote my promotional material back in the eighties when I was a single and performing in many venues in California, has put together this book about the singing groups of the 30 s, 40 s and beyond, especially about the days when we were singing tunes like Rum and Coca Cola, Apple Blossom Time, and Boogie, Woogie Bugle Boy. Here he lists all of us singing groups in one wonderful book. Richard has always said that his favorite Andrews recording was Ferryboat Serenade. Well, we, of course loved it too, but there were many to choose from and I hope you, too, have a favorite. Right now, I am no longer performing. I remain retired in my California home of many years with my cherished memories of my sisters when we were singing live just about everywhere and appeared in many motion pictures and recorded with singers like the great Bing Crosby. We had a successful career that spanned from the thirties through the nineties and are grateful to all the wonderful fans that helped us reach record sales of over 90 million , attended our seventeen movies, and bought tickets to our live performances and tuned in to our endless radio shows performances. But this book is not only about the Andrews Sisters, but all the groups who performed before us, and after our success. It includes three wonderful girls in England known as the Three Belles, who look and sound like us to keep the wonderful songs we sang for generations. You will love them. But this book covers all from us to the Supremes in the generation that followed us. Of course, our heroes were the Boswell Sisters, whom we loved to listen to and made them our inspiration. And the Mills Brothers with Glow Worm, and Paper Doll, who could forget those great performers who also provided their own backup music with their voices. So, read on about all of us singing groups and learn how and why we were so happy to sing our songs for all of you. Don t forget us. We haven t forgotten you. --Patty Andrews of the Andrews Sisters
