The McGuire Sisters: Season's Greetings From The McGuire Sisters (CD, Expended Edition)

(Real Gone Music) 15 tracks with color booklet.

One of the most popular vocal groups of the ‘50s releases a Christmas album at the peak of their popularity...and it never comes out on CD?

Well, that’s a headscratcher...one that calls for our resident Real Gone Christmas elves to “comb” through the vaults and set straight! Inspired by The Andrews Sisters and The Dinning Sisters, The McGuire Sisters were the most popular female vocal group of their era, having risen rapidly through the ranks thanks in part to a big break given them by Arthur Godfrey on his Talent Scouts show. Christine, Dottie, and Phyllis McGuire signed with Coral Records in 1952, and it was at Coral that they scored all their big hits, including “Sincerely” and Sugartime.”

The hits continued onGreetings from the McGuire Sisters, their 1958 Christmas record for Coral, which featured the two-sided smash “He” b/w “If You Believe” along with such charming fare as the children’s song “Cactus Christmas Tree.” But we didn’t stop there on this reissue! We found three bonus tracks from long out-of-print albums to append to the original album to make this The Complete Coral Christmas Recordings: “Be a Santa” comes from the album The McGuire Sisters Sing “Subways Are for Sleeping,” “Peace” is from May You Always, and “Ave Maria” comes from In Harmony with Him.

Tom Pickles produces and annotates our release. The term “long overdue” doesn’t quite capture just how long and how ardently folks have been waiting for this one...it’s a Christmas classic!

McGuire Sisters

Sincerely

The doo-wop classic Sincerely, written by Harvey Fuqua and his 'co-writer,' influential rock 'n' roll disc-jockey Alan Freed, was originally recorded for the independent Chess Records label by the Moonglows, who scored a # 1 R&B Jukebox hit with the tune in 1954. The record spent twenty weeks on the R&B chart, making the Moonglows, the Chess brothers and Alan Freed very happy guys.

Even better, Phil Chess found himself on the same plane as the McGuire Sisters and their manager while on a sales trip. He let the sisters and their manager know that he had a song they might be interested in. They ended up at the same hotel in Detroit where Phil managed to get a copy of Sincerely up to the sisters' room. The gals loved the song and, perhaps inspired by the success of their #7 mid-1954 cover of the Spaniels' doo-wop number, Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight, recorded Sincerely in November 1954, taking it to the top of the charts where it sat at #1 for ten weeks in early 1955.

Orchestra leader Dick Jacobs stays out of the way of the McGuires on their recording of Sincerely, lightly sketching in the Moonglows' bass vocal part for the male background singers, adding some colour by using a few light string flourishes here and there. The McGuires do their solid Andrew Sisters-inspired close-harmony thing with one of the sisters taking the occasional solo line, including all of the last bridge. It's an excellent pop performance, ushering R&B and doo-wop into mainstream American popular music. As well, the Chess brothers learned the value of a copyright.
