This page lists the album chart runs of Glenn Miller. A list of songs by Glenn Miller can be found here. The albums are listed with the most widely successful first.
By some measures Glenn Miller and his big band were the fifth most successful chart act ever, despite having a very short career. His signature tune, "In the Mood", was the 9th biggest hit song ever. He was the biggest musical act in the world every year from 1939-1942. At the peak of his success he volunteered for the US Army in order to serve in Europe. He was on his way to play a concert for the troops that had liberated Paris in 1944 when his airplane disappeared over the English Channel.

The Unforgettable Glenn Miller
The Unforgettable Glenn Miller album that was certified Platinum by the RIAAwas the 1968 release on Reader's Digest. You have the wrong album listed. The 1977 album of the same name is a different album. The RIAA specifically noted that the Platinum Award went to the Reader's Digest version.
Tanks for clarifying that, but as the FAQs mention (and the text on the individual song pages make clear) with this type of consolidation it is hard to differentiate two items with the same name (be they songs, artists or albums)
