The compilers of the Italian four-volume series of Mills Brothers recordings for which this is the concluding volume allowed overlap between it and the third volume (the discs are not, in any case, sequenced chronologically), probably in order to keep all of the group's recordings with Louis Armstrong on a single disc. Armstrong joins the brothers on 13 of 24 tracks and proves to be an excellent fifth member. The late 1930s was not one of the Mills Brothers' more successful periods, and none of their big hits are included, nor does the set include all of the brothers' recordings in these years. But the collaborations with Armstrong are a joy.
Formed: 1924 in Piqua, OH
Years Active: '30s, '40s, '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s
