I would rate any of Glenn Millers music higher than 5 stars as his music is the greatest as far as I am concerned.

I have one problem regarding my last purchase from Amazon. The Movie requested ." A CONNECTICUT YANKEE IN THE COURT OF KING ARTHUR, arrived on time, (8th Nov.2013) but will not play on any British D.V.D. player (I have 4 purchased at different times) as the disc is recorded on REGION 1 Our system is REGION 2 and American discs will not play on British systems.

I would be grateful if you could supply me with a REGION 2 disc, of this movie or a code that will enable my family to enjoy it.

Thank you,

M.J. Brooks (the vicar)

Early Miller Broadcasts 10 Jun 2014
By Jazzman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This double cd set features broadcasts by Glenn Miller's early 1938 band from the Paradise Restaurant in NYC. This is part of a two volume set with additional selections from the Paradise as well as airchecks from the Meadowbrook in the spring of 1939 and finally a few selections from the Glen Island Casino in the summer of 1939 when the band finally found its audience. This set, Volume 1 is all from the Paradise and is like a bit of musical archeology. The band is clearly in its formative stages. It hasn't found the formula that will bring it fame. In fact, the early broadcasts feature the still untitled Moonlight Serenade - listeners are asked at one point to submit suggestions for Glenn to use as a title. The music is early ecclectic with show tune medleys. flagwavers, and sugary ballads with a young and clearly still uncomfortable Ray Eberle. The distaff side vocals are by Gail Reese recently from Berigan's defunct band. She has a serviceable voice, but is not in the league of other female vocalist like Helen Forrest or Bea Wain. The band sounds rough on the uptempo numbers. The brass especially have real intonation problems often just approximating the clean higher brass register required of a first-rank ensemble. Miller plays more trombone in these early days when he had more time to play as opposed to later years when he resorted more and more to muted solos to cover his lapses of technique. The quality of the airchecks is quite good. My only caveat is the infuriating decision by these reissue labels to kill all the atmospherics - crowd noise, applause, announcements of song titles, etc. It is an entirely unnecessary vandalism of the broadcast experience. If you are interested in following the development of the most singularly successful dance band of all time during its formative months, then this set of cd's is a wonderful starting point. One negative is the lack of personnel lists. Is that Doc Carney or Cody Sandifer or Frankie Carlson on drums for example. Beneke is clearly on hand but who else was in the reeds? I realize some fairly easy research can resolve these questions but one shouldn't have to do that when it is a logical requirement for serious collectors. Nevertheless, that aside, this volume is recommended.
