The Complete Glenn Miller, Vol. 9 (1939-1942) Review

by Scott Yanow

Th ninth and final Glenn Miller double LP released by Bluebird in the late '70s finishes the complete reissuance of his studio recordings for Victor. The two-fer starts off with 18 alternate takes from the 1939-42 period and then features Miller's civilian band's last 14 recordings (including "That Old Black Magic," "Juke Box Saturday Night" and "Rhapsody in Blue"). Glenn Miller completists are advised to either pick up the 13-CD box set that is currently available or search for these nine attractive LP sets; the music and packaging is exactly the same.
