"It seems that the magic lable is afraid to try to improve the quality of the sound of it's CD's. Perhaps they think that if the music on it's albums should not sound to good, then perhaps their customers would think that perhaps they had bought a Jazz Band CD by mistake. After listinging to Jazz Band CD's of the Glenn Miller Army Air Force Orchestra (the word band does not describe the the sound of this Fantastic Agragation.)
I now know that theese great recordings do not have to sound like there is a bowl of rice crispies next to the microphone.
If I want rice crispies I'll buy a box of them. On the Jazz Band Cd's there is seldom if ever any grove noise. How they do that
I do not know, nice trick. Stick with the four Jazz Band albums of complete broadcasts. Buy them your ears will smile."
I Sustain the Wings Series--Magic label

"Although conceptually similar to the outstanding Jazz Band series of Miller AAF material, the Magic effort falls embarrassingly short in its effort. This label has never been known for their production efforts. Source material, although passable, has not been optimized through digital enhancement (a failing found throughout their Miller catalog). Virtually all of the tracks have a consistently muddy quality about them, with no attempt being given to coax out the sparkle of this musical aggregration that has been so well achieved on releases offered by other labels (AVID, RCA/BLUEBIRD,JAZZ BAND).Liner note information is skeletal and disappointing, considering the contributing author's potential. The saving grace of this Magic series is the inclusion of material featuring Tony Martin, which is infrequently presented in even this degree of quality.Many of the titles may be heard to much better advantage on other labels. I would recommend this release only for the purpose of discographical completeness, if the collector feels such a need; otherwise I'm praying that Jazz Band includes these titles on a future release in their series."
