The last sister of the Andrews Sisters (Patti, Maxene and LaVerne) passed on. Patti and her sisters recorded some of the songs that got us through the war, including many Christmas songs with Bing Crosby. They also appeared with Abbott and Costello in Buck Privates, In The Navy and Hold That Ghost. They had an amazing tight 3 part harmony, perfection in every way.
Some of their biggest hits were Bei Mir Bist Du Shoen, I’ll Be With You in Apple Blossom Time, Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B, Dont Sit Under The Apple Tree, I Can Dream Can’t I?, and Don’t Fence Me In with Bing Crosby. Our greatest generation will soon be gone. Just what will we have left after they leave?? Nothing.
Goodnight Patti. We’ll be seeing you in Apple Blossom Time.
