Format:Audio CD
Miller re-issues over the years have varied in quality, whether from editorial decisions (which tunes to feature)and engineering methods (what "original" sounds best, and how to improve it). On a 10-scale, I'd give this new 2-disc collection a solid 7.5. The engineering decisions have, for the most part, been good. The tune selection, as well as versions of those tunes, could have been a little more imaginative. But, for the money, and for a novice collector/listener, "Platinum Glenn Miller" is a decent start.
Some talking points from the engineering standpoint might revolve around the concept of "best available source material." Something to keep in mind: the original metal "part" is not always the best early-generation disc to work with. There are acetate test-pressings from those parts that have weathered the 60 years or so between the original wax impressions and todays digital remastering sessions in better shape than the metal stamper used to create them. Things like "noise floor", "hiss", and "rumble" become concerns, and on occasion, the BMG engineers have gone overboard to do their best. Good example: the rendition of Billy May's arrangement of "Take the A Train" featured in the compilation titled "The Spirit is Willing." In mid-track, the engineers audibly changed sources from one disc to another, and seemlessly edited the join. Why? A great disc was marred about halfway through, while another disc--while not as clean overall--was cleanER from that midpoint to the close. This may seem to be almost ... hair-splitting, but it's an example of remastering engineers going the extra mile. And, most of that particular compilation, "The Spirit is Willing," offers similar effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Miller never gets old. March 5, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the best digital transfer of Miller material I have heard. Most supposedly are taken from the original metal parts. BMG/RCA, however, in the past has gone overboard with Sonic Solutions type noise reduction. A good example of that is The Essential Glenn Miller collection from 1995. The quieter passages of songs are muffled and virtually impossible to hear (check out "In the Mood" from that collection). This new CD collection corrects that to some extent and quieter passages are much clearer but still slightly muffled. This may speak to the quality of recording techniques of RCA and Bluebird way back when. It may suggest the master discs were not cared for all that well over the decades. Having said that, this collection is sharper, crisper, with virtually no pops or crackle. Some cuts seem to be from better quality source material than the 1995 "Essential" collection. It is certainly better than the myriads of older MIller CD's available.
Botton line, it's two CD's of pure enjoyment. OK the Miller band wasn't Goodman or Shaw, but this music branded a generation. And these boys were certainly capable of cooking, as these recordings attest to. Even if you already own a Miller collection, pick up this one. Two CD's, all the favorite songs, the price is right and the best quality digital transfers I have ever heard. Then sit back, close your eyes and drift off to a simpler era. Or experience this magic for the first time.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love The Sound Of The Big Band December 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
"A band ought to have a sound all of its own. It ought to have a personality." ~ Glenn Miller (1904-1944) ~

What do these names have in common? Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, The Dorsey Brothers (Tommy and Jimmy), Harry James, Stan Kenton, Artie Shaw, Les Brown, Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie, Lawrence Welk, Lionel Hampton, Jan Garber, Sammy Kaye, Wayne King, Guy Lombardo, Vaughn Monroe, Les Elgart, Ray Anthony, and the list goes on and on. These are the names of the most popular bandleaders in the Golden Era of Dance Bands. My late father had collected their most remarkable albums and I truly enjoy listening to big band music - the sound of the 1930s and 1940s. For somebody who didn't live in that era, I myself am amazed with my penchant for this type of music.

This 2-CD Platinum set showcases the most notable recordings of Glenn Miller, the greatest name and the most identifiable sound of the Swing Era. It has been said that Mr. Miller's favorite quotation was "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing." He scored 17 Top Hits in 1939 and 31 in 1940, which included "Moonlight Serenade," "Sunrise Serenade," "Over The Rainbow," "Moon Love," "Stairway To The Stars," "When You Wish Upon A Star," "Blueberry Hill" and "Fools Rush In," to mention a few. These hits were instrumental in making him the most successful recording artist in 1940.

"Moonlight Serenade" has been my all-time favorite from Glenn Miller. I fell in love with this tune since the first time I heard it many moons ago. And so with his version of George Gershwin's "Rhapsody In Blue." I could listen to these tunes endlessly without ever tiring.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for new Miller fans; skippable for old hands March 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a very well done album featuring basic Miller. I would recommend it for someone who wants to know a little bit about Miller or who simply wants to engage in nostalgia. If you wnat to hear what Miller actually sounded like in all his richness, I suggest some of the live albums. Skip the Andrews Sister album--it features too little Miller to really appreciate the vast store of sounds and moods which the live programs afford. Similarly there are some broader collections that will give you a more rounded appreciation of Miller in the studio--even though Miller tended not to record his more spectacular arrangements--such as the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto, April in Paris, V for Victory Hop, the Red Calvary March and so forth. So, if you want something to listen to on your veranda, this will do well--if you want something that will stick to your ribs, you must go further afield.
