The Rise & Fall of Ruby Woo

by The Puppini Sisters

Overview

The Puppini Sisters continue their retro-chic ways on The Rise & Fall of Ruby Woo, offering a follow-up to their surprise hit Betcha Bottom Dollar that looks back to classic 1940s vocal harmony as it embraces up-to-date material. Rise & Fall features original songs written by the trio ("I Can't Believe I'm Not A Millionaire," "Jilted") and covers of tunes by artists ranging from Barry Manilow to Beyoncé.

After overhearing 'Betcha Bottom Dollar' last year - appropriately enough, in a Barnes and Noble - I bought that CD and have listened to it countless times. For their follow-up, they continue to bring that melodic, swing-time sound to standards of that era like "It Don't Mean a Thing, If it Ain't Got That Swing", while bringing a quirky but enjoyable twist to the contemporary "Walk Like an Egyptian". Cheers to a group who can take the familiar and bring something new to it!

What a cool album, never heard versions of 80's pop songs and old jazz standards done in such a fashion. Love their take on spooky. I'm must add this one to my collection. Love the cover photo as well, sexy.

I just heard this on preview while in a store and I was truely impressed that when I first hear walk like an ejyptian that I was frightened, but once I started listening they managed to change the songs while maintaining the spirit of the music. I was sad to learn I had to order it but it shows up soon.
