COVER NOTES

There can only be a handful of people in the Western world who haven’t heard of Glenn Miller and his music. His orchestra existed for only five years yet it made an indelible mark on the history of popular music, changing and modernising dance music styles almost overnight.
Along with his contemporaries, Benny Goodman, the Dorsey Brothers, Artie Shaw and others, he was a driving force and combined swing with out and out dance music which kept the publics attention, not only in those five short years which saw the outbreak of World War II, but ever since.
Glenn Miller collectors will always point out that the ten or so bestsellers, most of them instrumentals, are just scratching the surface of Millers output of over 300 sides for RCA in the States, and this collection covers not only the most well known and perhaps best loved titles that Glenn made his own, but also a goodly selection of the rest.
Miller’s famous theme, Moonlight Serenade, performs its usual task of getting things under way. No surprise that this record is one of the five most requested discs on record programmes in this country and surely the most imitated record by other bands down the years. Recorded in April 1939 and just six days before that other favourite, Little Brown Jug, Millers theme puts us all in the mood for what follows.

  1. BBC Radio Cumbria

    As you know I’ve nothing but praise for the quality of the recordings – and they are pitched perfectly at our audience, which is always crying out for the kind of music they listened to in their younger days.

  2. Mr S

    I purchased your excellent Moonlight Serenade CD and was delighted with the fabulous job you had done on removing the distortion. The only problem with your wonderful Glenn Miller collection is, that it left me wanting more!!
