Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The reverence in which Miller is held, so long after his death in 1944, is remarkable but hardly surprising. To be sure, his untimely demise has something to do with it, but he succeeded in taking the most popular elements of other big-bands and marrying them with extremely well-chosen songs of the time, in a formula which still comes across as craftily assembled and slickly played. For all that, it's also true the opening bars of most tracks here are sufficient to draw the listener in to an ambience that survives its period better than many competitors. The more swing-oriented numbers include all the favourites such as "String Of Pearls", "American Patrol" and "In The Mood", whose arranger Eddie Durham was also responsible for a more meaty "Sliphorn Jive", the only unconventional choice. The slower items, apart from the immortal "Moonlight Serenade", are mostly vocals (11 tracks out of 22) and, though less extraordinary, they still stand up to the test of time. --Brian Priestley

I've listened to a few Glenn Miller CDs, including the new remastered Very Best of, but this remains the best for sound reproduction. You'll probably only buy one Glenn Miller CD so make it this one!

This compilation CD was chosen because it contained "Perfidia", one of the tracks not readily available elsewhere, and one that I was particularly fond of. All of his other standards were present. I have given it 4 stars simply because I had hoped it would be a noise free "remaster", and although the sound quality was adequate it was just like hearing it on vinyl, crackles and all at times.

Everything that I was expecting and more!
Very nostalgic.
For fans of Miller or swing in general it's not to be missed.
