The music of Glenn Miller’s orchestra was central to the style and atmosphere of the swing era and is inextricably associated with the Allied victory in Word War Two, his hits keeping people’s spirits up on both sides of the Atlantic, with Miller himself becoming part of the war effort until his mysterious disappearance in 1944.

Such was his popularity that in the period of less than a decade from his launching his orchestra in the mid 1930s through to his demise, he had over 120 hits, both with his instrumental classics and with the new songs of the time.

This 124-track 5CD set includes just about all of recordings on the Columbia, Brunswick, Bluebird, Victor and RCA-Victor labels which are listed as hits in standard industry sources, many from the era after the launch of the Billboard record sales charts in 1940. It features an extraordinary tally of 21 No.1s, including A String Of Pearls, (I’ve Got A Gal In) Kalamazoo, Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree, Moonlight Cocktail, Chattanooga Choo Choo, Tuxedo Junction, In the Mood, Blueberry Hill, Fools Rush In and many more.

The featured vocalists include Ray Eberle, Marion Hutton, Tex Beneke, Kathleen Lane, Jack Lathrop, Dorothy Claire, Paula Kelly, Skip Nelson and The Modernaires.

It’s a substantial and entertaining showcase for one of the most important orchestras of the times, and an enormously evocative journey through the popular music landscape of a remarkable era in modern history.

A complimentary addition to Acrobat’s existing Glenn Miller catalogue which includes Glenn Miller Orchestra Live at The Glen Island Casino 1939 (ACTRCD9032) and Glenn Miller Live at Cafe Rouge NYC January & November 1940 (ADDCD3102)
