Classics from the swing and boogie-woogie era
on April 4, 2014
When I was a kid in the late-1940s, my parents had a big collection of 78 rpm phonograph records. The Andrews Sisters were one of their favorites, so I heard several of the songs on the CD pretty regularly. Playing the CD or listening to the MP3s brings back a lot of fond memories of that swing and boogie-woogie era. This is just a brief sampling of the Andrews Sisters work, but it's all primo stuff. My own favorite has to be the up-tempo "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," but I love every song.
Since the product description doesn't list every song, I'll list them here:
1. Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen
2. Hold Tight (Want Some Sea Food Mama)
3. Beat Me Daddy, Eight to the Bar
4. I'll Be With You In Apple Blossom Time
5. Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy
6. Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree (With Anyone Else But Me)
7. Shoo-Shoo Baby
8. Rum and Coca Cola
9. Near You
10. I Wanna Be Loved
11. Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive
12. I Can Dream, Can't I?
Some of these songs were recorded by other singers and groups, but in most cases, my favorite version is by the Andrews Sisters.
