All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Although Glenn Miller & His Orchestra get first billing on this two-CD set, 25 of the 35 selections are features for the Andrews Sisters. The music is taken from the earliest Glenn Miller Chesterfield Broadcasts, shows that had the always-cheerful Andrews Sisters as the regular guests. After March 1940, it was decided that Miller whose band had become the most popular in the country was too much of a big name to have to share his show with anyone. But before that happened, Miller's band often accompanied the Andrews Sisters, who are heard in prime form on such numbers as "Begin the Beguine," "Bei Mir Bust Du Schon," "Beer Barrel Polka," "Say 'Si Si,'" and "South of the ...

After March 1940, it was decided that Miller whose band had become the most popular in the country was too much of a big name to have to share his show with anyone.

Of the ten Miller songs, four have vocals by Ray Eberle, Tex Beneke, and/or Marion Hutton, with the only instrumentals being "In the Mood," "Tuxedo Junction," "One O'Clock Jump," "Little Brown Jug," "Runnin' Wild," and "Farewell Blues." Clyde Hurley has some hot trumpet solos along the way, but this set is primarily recommended to fans of the Andrews Sisters.

    Classic Tunes, Classic Radio

    I bought this CD because it was a great selection of Andrews Sisters songs, and got a few Miller tunes to boot. A few of the songs have a little fuzz, but otherwise they are great recordings of these radio broadcasts. The intros and product push from Chesterfield are included, so it's great nostalgic listening. It is a good stand-alone Andrews Sisters compilation, or a great addition to a collection. P.S. There are some excellent danceable tunes if you like swing dancing.
