Over their remarkable career, the Mills Brothers made, it is estimated, more than two thousand recordings, with combined sales of over 50 million copies. They had a unique style and were uniquely successful, combining as they did the best elements of vaudeville, Negro minstrelsy, barbershop and jazz. In addition, their 'trademark' of vocalising instrumental effects was a sensational novelty.
'Paper Doll' is a compendium of all their major hits since they burst onto the scene in 1931 with Tiger Rag. Countless smashes (there are actually 36 chart successes here!) include such million-sellers as the title track, You Always Hurt The One You Love and their final No.1, The Glow Worm (1952).
The fun is only increased by some delightful duets in which the brothers are joined by Louis Armstrong (Cherry), Bing Crosby (Dinah and Shine), Ella Fitzgerald (Dedicated To You) and Al Jolson (Is It True What They Say About Dixie?).
