    All-caps Filmotype Ginger and floating heads on pastel stripes for the cover of a record by the Mills Brothers. The jazz and traditional pop vocal quartet were the first African-American artists to have their own show on national network radio, on CBS in 1930; and the first to have a #1 hit on the Billboard singles chart, with “Paper Doll” in 1943. After John Jr., the oldest of the four brothers, died in 1936 at the age of 25, their father John Sr. replaced him as the bass and tuba. In A Mellow Tone was released by Vocalion Records in 1958.
