Discoveries of bandleader/TV variety show host Lawrence Welk, THE LENNON SISTERS comprised four young sisters, aged just sixteen (Dee Dee), fourteen (Peggy), twelve (Kathy) and nine (Janet) respectively.
With a retro style based heavily on The Andrews Sisters, they were regulars on Welk's TV show from the mid-50s to the late 60s, during which they were by far the most popular family singing group in the US.
This 32-track compilation presents the Very Best of their singles issued between 1956-62, variously on the Coral, Brunswick and Dot labels.
Includes their biggest hits 'Tonight You Belong To Me' and 'Sad Movies (Make Me Cry)', alongside popular TV favourites/regional successes like 'The Siamese Cat Song', 'Young And In Love', 'White Silver Sands', 'Shake Me I Rattle (Squeeze Me I Cry)', 'A Hundred And One In The Sun', 'Repeat After Me' and 'Kaw-Liga'.
Nine of these sides have never previously appeared on CD, making this compilation a must-have for all Lennon Sisters fans and/or collectors.
