Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree was another of the Andrews Sisters big hits and sold very well, despite the success that the Glenn Miller band achieved with the same tune. The chart opens with a half tempo verse and picks up into fast swing for the first vocal chorus to the end of the piece. The origianl vocal lines have been written 'as-sung' by the Andrews Sisters, and adapted the band backings to bring it up to full big band sections. Lead Alto doubles Clarinet in the opening verse, and there are no other sax doubles. The vocal key is Eb.
