AllMusic Review by John Bush

For Swingin' on a Star, Collectors' Choice compiled 20 tracks of mid-'40s radio transcriptions from the King Sisters, most with an orchestra backing led by Alvino Rey. Though they were one of the better female vocal groups, the King Sisters did tend toward the bland -- good thing, then, that Rey's atomic guitar lines liven up many of these tracks. Still, the material is much more ballad-oriented, including "Till the End of Time," "Ol' Man River," "I Surrender Dear," and "Stardust."
