The Andrews Sisters' chirpy WWII hit about "a famous trumpet man" drafted into the Army to "blow a bugle for his Uncle Sam" is here redone by a London-based non-sibling retro trio who sing rings around poor LaVerne, Maxene & Patty, may they rest in peace. The Puppini Sisters, their record label assures us, "have earned quite the celebrity following," including "members of The Royal Family." We had no idea English royalty was that hip; they certainly weren't back in King George III's time. The intentionally funny and seriously talented Puppini Sisters may lure us back into the British fold after all.
