"By giving the public a rich and full melody, distinctly arranged and well played, all the time creating new tone colors and patterns, I feel we have a better chance of being successful." - Glenn Miller

ABOUT THE ITEM

This fabulously rare EP vinyl box set is as interesting as it is collectible. Any Glenn Miller music stands on its own - the rich sounds of the Miller's Army Air Force Band are still sought after and enjoyed today. It isn't uncommon for his music to be boxed, but this set is unique in that it was a collection of 15 EPs with 30 sides of music. The LP sets are much more obtainable, and the EP sets tend to be harder to come by, especially in a such a large collection.

This box set features a 15 page biography on Miller and his band, complete with photographs and quotations. The condition of the book itself is a little rough. Though the hard cloth cover is still in tact, several pages (and a couple EP sleeves) tore out of the middle. The biography is complete, but we believe the missing page to be the second half of the album listing (ie, we have lists of what songs on are sides 1-14, but it cuts off after that). The last page of the biography has fallen out of the book, but is still inside the book. Of the 15 EPs, only 9 remain with the album. If you are interested in the listing of what sides/songs are available, please don't hesitate to contact us!

The other cool thing about this set is the stamping on the book. The cover, pages, and vinyl sleeves are all stamped with "KUVR, Holdrege, Nebraska." It turns out that this was the EP set owned by KUVR radio station - which still exists today! It's fun to daydream about a day when these EP's were slipped onto the station's player and broadcast out to the Nebraskan locals.
