"This CD captures the Miller sound in live performances during the band's first booking at the Meadowbrook Ballroom, which came about as a result of its having earlier snagged the Glen Island Casino gig for the 1939 summer season. This period was a very significant one in the band's history, marking the beginning of its meteoric rise to national popularity. The band's sound still had a few rough edges, but any technical lapses are more than compensated for by the engaging and elegant arrangements. The announcer's introduction to Dipper Mouth Blues dedicating it to the University of Colorado is the only instance in which I have heard of Glenn's days there being mentioned on a recording. The selection Oh, Baby! appears to be the only recording of the Miller band playing that song. This nicely remastered CD is fun to listen to and a valuable addition to anyone's collection."
