5.0 out of 5 stars SWEET NOSTALGIA May 9, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This CD was a great buy, and worth every dollar spent. I'm saying this for the simple fact that this beautiful music never dies and is more "Golden" as time passes by.
For years I've loved the music of the fifties, and some of it is so hard to get,I'm thankful that Amazon still carries music of these treasured long ago artistes. The tunes are catchy and it is this music which gives me that sweet nostalgia, as it was all I ever heard when I was growing up. Reliving these memories is something too great for words....goosebumps and all.
On this particular CD I also enjoyed "HE" which is a religious one and has been a favourite of mine for years. I recommend this
for all those who love and still enjoy the Olden Goldies. I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harmony at Its Best! October 24, 2001
By JK
Format:Audio CD
As a little kid born in the fifties, "Sugartime" was one of the first songs I remember hearing on our radio. I rediscovered the beautiful harmonies of these sisters in the seventies, listening on oldies radio. I owned a couple of their LP's back then, then had a couple of cassettes.
Like another reviewer, the amazing thing about the McGuire sisters' recordings is their fantastic sound quality. These sound so vibrant, so recent on CD! This is remastering at its best. For me, this CD sounds best on my car audio system, so realistic it could be a demo tape.
For my money, this trio is as good as it got in the fifties, embodying the clean, 'American' sound with all its optimism and confidence. Will we ever see this type of aural beauty again? We can only hope. In the meantime, treasure this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Recording Making May 21, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The McGuire Sisters made more great records than you might think. The people at Coral understood perfectly the trio's harmonies, inventiveness and ability to do anything from the most dramatic ballad to the nutsiest novelty with style and appeal. Dick Jacobs' orchestrations was the fourth Sister in a way and the ladies usually were recorded in the same place--a temple in New York City with fantastic acoustics. The McGuires approached recordings creatively--they were about much more than hits (their albums prove that). They got out at least four dozen single sides worth hearing--the best of it is all here, beautifully mastered and still great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three brilliant sisters October 18, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Comparisons with other sister groups of the forties are often made, but are meaningless. They may have been influenced by the Andrews, the Boswells, the Dinnings or the Kings, or any number of other sister acts, but their style was very much their own.

The McGuires tackled a diverse range of material, from upbeat swinging song to tender love songs, and from jazz to country songs, yet all done in their trademark style, which was in some ways typical easy listening fifties pop, yet they didn't sound too much like anybody else. Despite the diverse sources of their songs, they all blend together very well.

Their two big #1 hits, Sincerely and Sugar time, are of course included, along with all the other hits that matter. This is a highly entertaining collection of music by three sisters who continued to have hits even after Elvis changed the face of popular music, and gives far more variety than any hits collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweethearts of Song September 21, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I have this CD and I really enjoy listening to the perfect harmony that the McGuires are known for. I remember when they were putting out hit record after hit record in the 1950's and I think anyone who likes to listen to good harmony and good music would like this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something Special October 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I remember the McGuires as a kid in the 50s and hated to admit, especially with the advent of rock and roll out of R & B, that I really liked their songs. My loyalty was rewarded when in 1961 a torch song called "Just For Old Times' Sake" was right up there on the charts with Elvis ("Feel So Bad") and Ricky ("Traveling Man"/"Hello Mary Lou"). It's remained one of my favorite songs since then and I still have the 45 single. Unless you are in a bag, as a later 60s expression goes, and like only a certain genre of music, you'll like this unique set of sisters who were back on the road well into their 50s. Nobody else has quite captured the sound of the McGuires.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Hits by the McGuire Sisters December 22, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This is the best! I am from the same town (Miamisburg, Ohio) where the McGuire sisters grew up. I have loved their music for many years. I would love to see new recordings from them. They are a class act -- the greatest harmony.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Memories from the 50's!!! June 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first saw/heard the McGuire sisters back in the 50's on the Arthur Godfrey show. Once in a while,through the years, I would hear them on an oldies radio station. I wanted a CD with all of their main hits, and this CD didn't disappoint me. They're all here! Don't miss this one!
