Overview

This LP gives listeners a fine overview of the Mills Brothers during their first three years on records. Backed only by an acoustic guitar, the remarkable vocal group imitates instruments and swings up a storm on 16 studio recordings including "Bugle Call Rag," "Coney Island Washboard," "Tiger Rag," "Sweet Sue" and their theme "Goodbye Blues." All of this classic music has since been reissued on CD in more complete form by the British JSP label.
