Cocktail Hour:  (2 CD Set)

 By The Mills Brothers

Very Good Condition.

This is a wonderful two-disc collection of Mills Brothers tracks from the 1930s and 1940s, including a classic version of "Lazy River," a beautifully laid-back take on Hoagy Carmichael's "Georgia on My Mind," and an impressive run at a pair of Duke Ellington classics, "It Don't Mean a Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing)" and "Caravan" (the Mills Brothers' amazing ability to vocally mimic the instruments of a jazz orchestra allowed them to do fascinating "instrumental" covers of jazz standards). Some fairly essential tracks are missing here, though, like 1952's "The Glow Worm," for one, so this compilation isn't perfect, but it's a lot of fun and it does make a well-sequenced introduction to this amazing and innovative vocal group.
