Glenn Miller

I guess that there would be some swing music amongst this little lot of borrowed L/P's and I am not disappointed with the original Glenn Miller...RCA has done a brilliant job of Enhancing for Stereo !! usually when they do that it tends to leave a slight echo and it doesn't sound right but not with this one !!!

          1. Little Brown Jug

Karl Ehrlich Band

Not been to a Beer festival for years and this lot seems to be enjoying themselves lots quite a few of well known tunes and some that you can join in even if you don't know them... it's that infectious!!...wonder where Auntie Jean is !!
