Love hearing real bands
The British have been very loyal Glenn Miller fans, so much so that the official Glenn Miller Orchestra now has two versions of the band; one based in England, the other in the US. For my money, the best recordings of Glenn Miller music after his death were done by the GMO led by Ray McKinley in the mid 1950s. Hard to find now, but worth the search. They were originally issue by RCA Victor.
Just amazing this music!!!!
Great. Music.

Real music
GREAT
Sometimes it is just nice to sit, get comfortable and remember a wonderful time that was, a long time ago but still wonderful to remember.
The BBC Big Band has taken many cracks at this Glenn Miller classic. To my ears, the Benny Goodman version, arranged by Mel Powell, swings more. Miller recorded his version in 1941, Goodman in 1942. The Goodman version was popular (flipside was Jersey Bounce), but never matched the Miller version in commercial success.
A nice treat, how this came on Simon and Garfunkel radio I don't know but I like it
Love listening to this late at night at work awesome
