• The Fontane Sisters were a family vocal trio who worked on radio, and made early recordings for the Musicraft label around 1946, before joining Perry Como’s radio show, which led to a recording contract with RCA, for whom they had a number of big hits, including duets with Perry Como.

• They moved to the Dot label in 1954, and immediately had major successes with cover versions of big hits from the R&B charts, most notably a pop No. 1 with their version of The Charms’ “Hearts Of Stone”, and a No. 3 with a cover of Boyd Bennett’s “Seventeen”.

• This great-value 60-track 2-CD collection features all their 44 entries in the Billboard and Cash Box charts, including their two No. 1s with Perry Como “’A’ You’re Adorable” and “Hoop-De-Doo”, plus selected A & B sides from their singles for Musicraft, RCA and Dot from the era.

• Although they were very much part of the middle-of-the-road pop scene of the late ‘40s and early ‘50s, their versatility was such that from their beginnings in the immediate post-war years, they were able to sustain their chart career into the rock ‘n’ roll era.

• They are a group who, despite their numerous chart successes, have not been accorded the recognition they merit as artists who had the staying power and talent to ride the waves of the music business during the turbulent era of the mid-‘50s.

• This overview of their active career as recording artists provides an entertaining insight into that talent.
