Reseña de álbum

This is the kind of album that Howard and Marion Cunningham (Tom Bosley and Marion Ross) and their neighbors would have been listening to together on Happy Days, if the latter had been a CBS series rather than an ABC series. Seriously, starting with "That Old Gang of Mine," Mitch Miller and the Gang go through 16 songs (some as medleys) that, even in 1958, felt like they were 100 years old. In fairness, they don't feel quite like they're 150 years old when heard on the CD in 2007 — to that degree, they've sort of become "timeless" — but they were definitely intended to appeal to parents and grandparents at the time of the album's release. The performances on such tunes as "Down by the Old Mill Stream," "You Are My Sunshine," and "By the Light of the Silvery Moon," are bold and robust, with little touches of subtlety in the dynamics and the spare accompaniment — often not much more than a harmonica or an accordion, with a ukulele — and the tempos, that make them somewhat more interesting to hear as a body than they are as individual tracks. Actually, Miller and company seem to have planned this album as a total, cohesive listening experience rather than a series of separate, isolated songs, as the numbers come almost right up against each other, with virtually no pause between. Among the individual tracks, those who liked Miller's hit rendition of "The Yellow Rose of Texas" will probably luxuriate in the version of "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" featured here. The contrasting tempos and melodies are all very carefully selected, for the greatest variety between songs, and it's all calculated right down to the light-hearted final track, "Be Kind to Your Web-Footed Friends," which is here as a jocular, almost self-deprecating finish. It's almost a concept album, in that sense — and was Miller consciously stepping into territory that his one-time most outspoken in-house critic, Frank Sinatra, was staking out in his then-current berth at Capitol Records? — and a surprisingly well-crafted one. And while it is easy to scoff at this kind of music 50 years on, one should also remember that Sing Along with Mitch was one of the bigger selling albums in the Columbia Records library, staying in print for decades and racking up sales sufficient to earn it a release as part of the label's first wave of budget-priced CDs (alongside albums such as Paul Revere & the Raiders' Greatest Hits etc.), thirty years after its original release.

Sing Along with Mitch Miller

Everyone remembers listening to his music on popluar radio and maybe even watching his TV shows. My parents splurged on a few of Mitch Miller's albums and played them on the new console "stereo" they bought. I enjoyed listening to these songs when I was small and they sound pretty good now, with old familiar arrangements bringing back some special family memories. I hope my kids like them , too.

Wow haven't heard it in a long time!

I loved this album I listened to it when I was a little girl with my parents on road trips! Now my little girls loves it! Great album for little ones that wont drive you crazy and you can enjoy too!

Sing Along with Mitch

Lordy, we DID sing along with Mitch, and I remember all the lyrics. It was great fun then, and with the exception of some college years when it was NOT cool, will be fun again. I am siccing this album on my brother-in-law along with a good bottle of wine since he has yet to be initiated. Just remember all my fellow flower children, a duck MAY be somebody's mother!

For over 15 years, beginning in 1948 and lasting into the early '60s, Mitch Miller was a major force in the recording industry.
