AllMusic Review by

Glenn Miller's America's Bandleader is part of RCA's mid-line series Bluebird's Best. This is a solid collection of hits recorded for Bluebird in the late '30s and early '40s. While there aren't any surprises here, the disc contains well-known hits such as "American Patrol," "Chattanooga Choo Choo," "In the Mood," and "Tuxedo Junction." While the liner notes do not contain a complete personnel listing, they do include exact recording dates, half of which are taken from live broadcasts emanating from New York and Hollywood. America's Bandleader is a perfect introduction to Glenn Miller from the prime era of the big bands.
