AllMusic Review by

This was the first of two 10"LPs to begin drawing from Glenn Miller's broadcast archive. Drawing on radio transcriptions and air-shots that Miller had assembled for his private use, the producers assembled a pretty fair account of what his band sounded like working in front of an audience. This and the companion volume would later be assembled into a complete 12" LP, and the Miller broadcast archives would subsequently constitute an entire "shadow" catalog of his work. But this is more or less where the excavation of the archive started, and it's still a pretty cool selection of tunes, including "One O'Clock Jump," "Tiger Rag," and "St. Louis Blues."
