AllMusic Review by

Before the CD era, this two-LP set was the definitive Glenn Miller greatest-hits package. All 30 selections were big sellers (there are no duds) and none of Miller's most popular songs are missing. Programmed in chronological order, the music starts with "Moonlight Serenade" and continues up to "St. Louis Blues March" (which was actually from Miller's Army Air Force Band). Highlights include "Little Brown Jug," "In the Mood," "Pennsylvania Six-Five Thousand," "Anvil Chorus," "Chattanooga Choo Choo," "A String of Pearls" and "Serenade in Blue"; in fact, every song here is a highlight.
