I've always loved the Moody Blues and have just about everything they've recorded and is probably close to my favorite.

However, I have to say that is a pretty close second.

Bill, thanks for posting that. I really enjoy the music from that era even though I'm not old enough to have appreciated it the first time around.

You're most welcome. They're all pretty much the music from my early youth. Used to listen to Martin Block's Make-Believe Ballroom on my folks' old Philco. Sadly appreciation for this type of music has gone the way of a lot of my old friends.
It's been 30 years since I last heard this kind of music at our Legion Hall.

I love this music! It's even losing it's hold in the Nursing Home.

I think i got hooked on big band music when I saw the movie "The Glen Miller Story" as a kid.

This is one of my all time Glen Miller favorites with Tex Beneke singing. It's a clip from a movie with a very acrobatic dance routine by the Nicholas Brothers at the end.

Good sound.
Chattanooga Choo Choo wasn't too shabby either.
Too bad Tex's association with the band ended in 1950.

Glenn Miller did spend some time at the Glen Island Casino but I do not think the island was named after him !

I love old music. We had to buy a car this year, and it came with sirius/XM. I love going back and forth between 40s on 4, 50s on 5, etc. This morning I put on the 70s and just cracked up to hear Casey Kasems American top 40, dated 7/9/73. That was probably the year I graduated from high school. I had a hard time keeping my hands on the steering wheel, I wanted to dance!
