Glenn Miller & His Orchestra - Biltmore 1022 / 1045 / 1047 (1935-1937)

Here we have 6 sides from the bootleg Biltmore Record Company. According to Wikipedia, Biltmore Records lasted 2 years (1949-1951) until RCA Victor sued for reissuing songs from their catalog.

Here we have the 4 tracks by a group that was put together for Ray Noble. These were the first Miller recorded as a leader.
