Text, side A
Born in Piqua, Ohio, the Mills Brothers grew up and attended school in Bellefontaine. The brothers -- John, Jr., Herbert, Harry, and Donald Mills -- were the first African-American vocal group to perform on a national radio broadcast and achieve commercial success. Enjoying worldwide fame throughout their career, the Mills Brothers popularized such hits as "Tiger Rag," "Paper Doll," and "You Always Hurt the One You Love." After the death of John, Jr. in 1936, the remaining brothers were joined by their father, John, Sr. In all, the Mills Brothers recorded over 1,200 songs.
