Description

The six King sisters (only four of which sang together at any one time) In chronological order they were Maxine, Louise, Alyce, Donna, Yvonne and Marilyn, are one of the less famous sister groups of their era, despite having a very long career. While the Andrews sisters (for example) had an easily identifiable, unique sound, the King sisters did not - their music was fairly typical of the era, so perhaps that is why their music has almost been forgotton. It should not be, because they were brilliant. The recordings selected for this excellent CD are mostly from the early 1940's, although they started recording in the mid-thirties and continued until the late fifties. Despite not having a truly unique sound, the ladies always stamped their own identity on each song they recorded. Most of the songs here will be well known to fans of the Great American Songbook, and these versions make very enjoyable listening.
