By June 1942, Glenn Miller and his Orchestra were the number one band in the world. The band had been averaging four studio recordings per month. All that changed on the 14th of July 1942, for the next three days the band would average four recordings per day. The reason was the race to beat the recording ban which was to be imposed by the American Federation Of Musicians on the 1st of August 1942. The dispute with the record companies was to last over two years in the case of the big bands on the RCA label. Tracks include: American Patrol, Soldier Let Me Read Your Letter, The Sleep Song, Sweet Eloise, (I've Got A Girl in) Kalamazoo.
