In the mid-1960s some friend accompanied me on a ride from Colchester to Welwyn Garden City where the world famous Glen Millar Orchestra, which had been reformed was to perform – It was a magical night for followers of the Big Band Sound!
We were not disappointed for the band played all original Glen Millar arrangements and the 60-mile journey proved very worthwhile, Next of course many of us wanted to get their latest recording – unfortunately not available at that time.
A few years later, on a visit to Disneyland in Los Angeles there, once again performing was the Glen Millar Orchestra – again a search for a recording which failed.
Imagine then my amazement when visiting the local OP shop in Paraparaumu New Zealand I was faced with – would you believe – a CD of a limited edition recording of this very same orchestra which had been recorded in New York was back in 1991.
Needless to say, I promptly bought it for $3 and I have to say it is my Pride and Joy.
The CD which is a limited Edition is amazing. The sound quality is brilliant and completes a search which started in England and ended up here, in New Zealand after some 50 years of searching.Recommend0 recommendations
