The U.S. Army's World War Two V-Disc recording program emerged from a combined need for music to build troop morale and from a two-year musician's union recording ban, which had drastically reduced the available amount of new releases. With contributions from the leading jazz, popular, and classical artists of the day, V-Discs represented the broad sweep of American musical culture. These vintage big-band swing sides from the Jimmy Dorsey band are remarkable for their loose good humor, relaxed performances (due to the different recording techniques used, some of these are extended well beyond the 78 rpm three-minute norm), and superlative music, particularly on cuts like the jumping "Long John Silver" and the bebop-influenced "All the Things You Ain't."
