NEW GLENN MILLER ORCHESTRA - SOMETHING OLD, NEW, BORROWED and BLUE
1958 BLACK DOG - A2/A1 STAMPERS; "I" PRESS
The newly reformed band was much better but it took more time for them to get famous. They opened April 16, 1938 at Raymor Ballroom in Boston and when the band reached New York, they were billed below Freddie Fisher and His Schnickelfritzers. But they performed more and more and eventually signed with RCA Victor subsidiary label Bluebird Records. On September 7, 1938, the first recordings with the newly reformed band. They were "My Reverie", "King Porter Stomp" and "By the Waters of Minnetonka", in two parts. Miller was not yet famous, and made less than 10 recordings with his band for the rest of that year.
In March 1939, The Glenn Miller Orchestra was given its big break, when they were chosen to play the summer season at the prestigious Glen Island Casino located on the north shore of Long Island Sound in New Rochelle, New York. On May 17, 1939, they played their first songs of the night. The casino had a radio broadcast antenna and the Miller band was broadcast. By the end of their summer season, they had nationwide attention. Also, at this time, Miller decided to add a trombone and a trumpet, giving the band a fuller sound.
Miller was enormously popular and the rest of 1939 only got better. On April 4, 1939, Miller and his Orchestra recorded "Moonlight Serenade". What many consider to be his second most famous record, (only behind "In the Mood" which was recorded later that year) the song helped Miller and his orchestra become even more popular- by staying on Billboard for 15 weeks and peaking at number 3- and was the band's greatest song at that time. It was the 5th overall most popular song for 1939. Miller's most famous song "In the Mood" was recorded August 1, 1939. Miller changed things around with the song before it was recorded, though he was never credited as an arranger. The song, famous for its "dueling" saxophone solos and often the closing number to most shows, shot to number one on Billboard's charts and stayed on the charts for a total of 30 weeks.
1940 was a very popular year for Miller, as he earned himself 31 top ten hits and unsurpassed popularity. On February 5, 1940, Miller recorded "Tuxedo Junction". As a number one hit for Miller, it was overall at number 7 for the National Hit Parade, and sold 115,000 copies within the first week. In April, "Pennsylvania 6-5000" was released and that too became an instant jazz standard. A lot of these songs would also be featured in the 1941 motion picture Sun Valley Serenade. "In The Mood" recorded in 1939, became supremely popular. It led the Record Buying Guide for 13 weeks and stayed on Billboard 's charts for 30. "In the Mood" would eventually, in 1983, be inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. It is considered one of the (if not the) greatest instrumental song of the swing era.
The band's most popular songs are became very popular and recorded a number of chart successes — among these were the ever-popular "Moonlight Serenade", "In the Mood", "Tuxedo Junction", "Pennsylvania 6-5000", "Chattanooga Choo Choo", "A String of Pearls", "At Last", and "(I've Got a Gal In) Kalamazoo."
