Chronological Vol. 5  

By The Mills Brothers

Very Good Condition

The fifth of six JSP CDs that reissue all of the Mills Brothers' early recordings in chronological order mostly covers the July 1937-August 1938 period. In addition to particularly memorable renditions of "Organ Grinder's Swing" and "Caravan," there are three enjoyable collaborations with Louis Armstrong of which "The Song Is Ended" is a definite highlight. There is also a broadcast version of "Flat Foot Floogie," two odd numbers that team Louis Armstrong with Harry Mills ("Elder Eatmore's Sermon on Throwing Stones" and "On Generosity") that do not really come off and three earlier numbers (including a medley with the Don Redman Orchestra) that had been formerly bypassed in this definitive series. Highly recommended, as are all six of these volumes.
