Sing Brother Sing: The Mills Brothers & The Delta Rhythm Boys
The rich tradition of four-part harmony reached its peak in the late 1930s and 40s. What had been a gospel and vaudeville vocal style was adapted to popular songs, and the Mills Brothers, along with the Delta Rhythm Boys were the premier groups that captured America's attention. Their vocal stylings laid the groundwork for generations of Pop and Soul groups to follow! Here are rare, early appearances by all three of these landmark groups - all on one sensational DVD. No fan of pop or rhythm and blues should miss out on this extraordinary collection!

I bought my copy brand new from a reseller for $5.50 plus shipping, which was a fair price for what I got. My biggest complaint is that the producers cut the very beginnings and very ends from each movie, and then faded them from one to the next. Usually it seems like only a second or two, but on one particular film, "Caravan", there's some corny dialog between Harry Mills and an actress that appears to be partially cut from the beginning of the reel.
A little annoying also is that the shorts are presented like MTV videos, with info in the bottom left corner at the beginning and end of each film. Also, the DVD producers put a "Sing Brothers Sing" watermark on (at least) some of the films. Not very distracting, hardly noticeable and notable, but still- why put it there in the first place?
Maybe the producers were concerned with making sure that the value is limited to this presentation (thus discouraging illegal distribution). I simply wish the films were left alone, shown as they were originally. But maybe that's just me.
Again, as the last person mentioned, it's very short- about 40 minutes, but what can you do? They're fun to watch at least once or twice anyway (I personally can't imagine much more than that). Anyway, I'm happy for the most part with my purchase. As I said, I'm such a fan of the Mills Bros, and where else will I see these unique film performances (not the same commercially sold versions)?
