Gene Kelly’s character, Danny McGuire, has a connection to Glenn Miller Orchestra and made two separate references to him in the film. This small fact was in my mind when I bumped into this 3-CD set called ‘Glenn Miller: The Popular Recordings (1938 – 1942)’ at Goodwill today. It’s a 3-CD set of Miller’s most popular recordings.

Even before Xanadu, I had a small interest in big band music, though as with discovering any new form genre, you have to fish out the good from the “other music” and I was too young and impatient and kinda gave up soon afterward, though I discovered Duke Ellington during his 1940’s period before I went elsewhere.

However, after listening to 2/3rds of this set thus far, I’m quite happy; it’s inventive and fun without being horky or overly sugary.

Any Xanadu fan who are interested in this genre and have listened and enjoyed the ‘Swing!’ album, might want to look for this set or any other CBS/Sony Glenn Miller collection down and get a taste of Xanadu before it became XANADU….and while you’re at it, Duke Ellington and Artie Shaw might be the next level to look for.

Just a thought and a few notes for now.

Hey; I hope all is well in Xanadu. I have a few other pictures if you want them. But I can't figure out how to suggest them.

Hello; several months ago, I think one of my drawings was considered for this group and I was so pleased and honored.
But somehow, I couldn't figure out how to accept the invitation. Then I tried joining the group; and you had to send me the invitation due to d.a. tech problems.
But by that time, I was having bad computer problems as well; and before I could get in, the invitation was expired.
I'd really like to join and submit my few xanadu-related submissions; so if you have the time to send the invitation again; I promise I'll jump onboard.
I'm awfully sorry about all of this. I absolutely love the interviews you posted of the making of the XANADU!
