Description

"Next to a letter from home", wrote Lt. Col. James H. Dolittle to Major Glenn Miller in July 1944, "your organisation is the greatest morale builder in the European Theatre of Operations". Miller and his band were not alone, of course, and 'In the Mood' honours the contribution that so many of the great American swing bands made to the Allied war effort.

'In the Mood' features the exuberant dance music, the heart-felt love songs, the rousing anthems that reflect the spirit of wartime Britain and its people. This collection guarantees that the greatest wartime dance bands and their signature tunes will get your feet tappin'.
