    It's almost hard to believe in this day and age that the Andrews Sisters were at one time the collective Madonna of their day. Once they hit, they hit big and sold millions and millions of records. They logged almost 20 performances in movies and guested on every major tv and radio show.
    Decades after their recording careers ended they inspired endless singers. Bette Midler had her first #1 record w/a cover of their golden Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and even Christina Aguillera (the mix)was inspired w/her Candyman record. They were HUGE stars.

    Here's some further Wiki info on them here. A 2 cd set of theirs has been in heavy hepcat rotation at my place all day!
