AllMusic Review by

Four brief radio shows (in a series titled Uncle Sam Presents) featuring Glenn Miller's Army Air Force band are included on this collector's LP. Most of the rare music is quite jazz-oriented and even the vocals (by Johnny Desmond, Ray McKinley and the Crew Chiefs) are not without their interesting moments. This was Miller's finest orchestra, as can be heard on such numbers as "Anvil Chorus," "Jeep Jockey Jump," "I Hear You Screaming" and "In the Mood"; soloists include clarinetist Peanuts Hucko, pianist Mel Powell and trumpeter Bobby Nichols.
