• The BELL SISTERS - The 'Bermuda' Girls - The Original Hits & Lots More Fun!

The Bell Sisters had big hits in the USA with the songs "Bermuda" and "Wheel Of Fortune" in 1952. Cynthia (then aged 16) and Kay (11) went on to appear on six occasions on Bing Crosby's and also Bob Hope's radio shows. The first 18 tracks, on Disc 2 include all the performances on Bing's show. The banter between the sisters an Bing is delightful. This set also feature the sister's many recordings as well as duets with other artist such as Phil Harris, Gary Crosby and Spike Jones. The original RCA demo of "Bermuda" is also included, as are other unissued tracks. The excellent liner notes are by the sister's nephew ,Rex Strother, who compiled the Discs. Geoff Milne (who else ?) handled the transfers. A Charming CD.
