The short films included in this compilation are known as Soundies. These musical films were made between 1941 and 1947. "The Big Bands Volume One" is a sampling of the numerous bands who performed in front of the Soundies cameras. This edition includes many of the hits of the 1940's performed by some of the biggest stars of the era. Initially, Soundies were extremely popular but due to a shortage of production materials during the war the Panorams were in short supply, ultimately causing the demise of the Soundie in 1947. Nevertheless, Soundies captured on film many superb musicians at the peak of their powers, making an irreplaceable contribution to the history of American music.

Using the best possible sources, Storyville Films has painstakingly located and restored the Soundies in this program to the best possible condition. In some cases the available prints were not up to our usual excellent standards. We have chosen to include those films because of their historic value.
