Nice to hear from another Mills Brothers fan.
No doubt you are familiar with their early stuff. When they started out they were a vaudeville novelty act and used to make the sounds of the instruments themselves. Very clever, and very funny on occasion. They're one of my top five ever harmony groups along with the Andrews Sisters, The Pacific Airs, and The Comedy Harmonists.
Anyway, the Mills Brothers had the best of both worlds.
