Album Review

The Mills Brothers: The Anthology is a comprehensive 48-song overview of the vocal group's career, spanning their entire career and featuring 32 of their biggest hits. Most of their most famous songs — including "Paper Doll," "Glow-Worm," "Lazy River," and "Rockin' Chair" — are included on this double-disc set and the sound is the best it has ever been. In short, it is the definitive retrospective of this ground-breaking vocal quartet.

A Must Have

If you must have a Mills Brothers album, then this is it. This album contains many of the original recordings of the Mills Brothers, which is almost a rarity for groups that lasted this long. In this album, you can hear their styles change over the years, from the fast paced "Tiger Rag", to the slow and pleading song "Till Then," to their last hit, "Cab Driver," again fast paced, much reflecting the ages that they lived in. This is simply an excellent, well rounded album that documents the Mills Brothers at their best.

Remember when

Born in the mid 40's music was always a part of our house growing up. Sinatra, Dorsey, James et. el., The one thing I remember the most was listening to my Grandma and mom sing the songs of the Mills Brothers. You Tell Me Your Dream...was my grandma's favorite, I think mom liked Paper Doll. I remember liking them all. Now my daughter is getting married and I am burning a wedding CD as a favor for the guests and I wanted something special to close the album with, so I turned to the Mills Brothers and Daddy's Little Girl, I can't think of anything better.

My only complaint is that the collection does not include the Mills Brothers haunting rendition of Down by the Old Mill Stream. Despite that omission, however, this is a collection that I would highly recommend to anyone who is a fan of the Mills Brothers.

An astonishing vocal group that grew into one of the longest-lasting oldies acts in American popular music, the Mills Brothers quickly moved from novelty wonders to pop successes and continued amazing audiences for decades. Originally billed as "Four Boys and a Guitar," the group's early records came complete with a note assuring listeners that the only musical instrument they were hearing was a guitar. The caution was understandable, since the Mills Brothers were so proficient at re-creating trumpets,...
