AllMusic Review by

This deluxe (and now hard-to-find) three-LP set has 20 selections plus ten medleys (with usually a tune apiece representing something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue) taken from radio broadcasts during the prime period of the Glenn Miller Orchestra. Most of the material has not been reissued since and the rare performances of jazz-oriented dance music are both nostalgic and generally swinging. It's a must for Glenn Miller fans who have already heard most of his studio recordings.
