Overview

The Mills Brothers were immensely popular in prewar England, so when the British branch of the group's U.S. label, Brunswick Records, went bankrupt and was purchased by London-based Decca Records in 1932, it was a no-brainer to bring the brothers to the U.K. for a series of concerts and recording sessions for their new label. This brief collection brings together some of the highlights of those sessions, including wonderful versions of a pair of Hoagy Carmichael songs, "Lazybones" and "Georgia on My Mind," and yet another rendition of Duke Ellington's "Caravan," which saw the brothers vocally simulate a jazz orchestra -- horns and all -- in their amazing, patented style. Light, breezy, and well recorded, these 14 tracks make a wonderful introduction to one of the greatest vocal groups in the history of pop and jazz.
