Glenn Miller & His Orchestra - Decca 1284 (1937) & Bonus Side

Coming across a Glenn Miller on Bluebird or Victor has always been a bright spot in my collecting. Yeah, I know that there are a ton out there but his band, his movies, his gets to me.

Now...even more special than finding a Bluebird is getting one from his earlier bands on Columbia, Decca or Brunswick.

(I've only found Deccas...and just 2 of 'em.)

What looks to be a Japanese pressing, here is a recording made 3 months after the ones above with the same personnel. (The flip side is a Claude Thornhill recording of Harbor Lights)
