Glenn Miller - Orchestra: Live At Glen Island Casino 1939 (CD)


$ 21.30


A highly collectable release from one of the most successful and enduring artists in the history of popular music

This series of programmes has been less readily available, appearing only in piecemeal form, as we hope that this 3-CD set will redress that situation and make available a fairly substantial selection of shows -thirteen 30-minute or 15-minute broadcasts - in their complete original form.

They are programmes broadcast on NBC from the Glen Island Casino in New Rochelle, New York, on the Long Island Sound (as the announcer tells us in every broadcast!). The first show is the opening of his season on 17th May 1939, and the set includes regular broadcasts through to August of that year.

We have chosen to keep all the introductions and theme tunes, in order to maintain the flavour and atmosphere of the broadcasts, which very much capture the style and context of the era. It includes one very interesting vocal contribution from a young Kay Starr, as well as features for his regular vocalists Marion Hutton, Ray Eberle and Tex Beneke.
Several tunes are repeated during the shows, giving an opportunity to hear different versions and performances of tunes that had already, or subsequently, appeared as commercial recordings, as well as his versions of then current popular tunes.
It is an essential acquisition for Glenn Miller fans, many of whom will not already have these shows in their collection.
