Live at the Café Rouge Jan. & Nov. 1940
Glenn Miller & His Orch.
Catalogue Number: ADDCD3102
This release follows through on another successful previous collection, namely the 3-CD set ACTRCD9032 Glenn Miller ‘Live’ at Glen Island Casino 1939. This 2-CD set features a collection of four complete unedited radio broadcasts made by the hugely popular and successful Glenn Miller Orchestra as their fame continued to reach new heights, and their radio shows attracted massive nation-wide audiences. This set brings together two shows from early January 1940 with two from November of the same year, all from his residencies at the Café Rouge at New York City’s Hotel Pennsylvania. They have been selected to avoid any song duplications between the programmes, while providing complete shows, with all the announcements and links, capturing the atmosphere and style of the original broadcasts. It is another must for the many avid collectors of Glenn Miller material – the ultimate in ‘40s wartime nostalgia.
