Under V-Disc, an abbreviation for " Victory Disc" ( German: "Disks for Victory" ) was understood in the Second World War plates which consistent light music ( like pop, dance music, swing by Artie Shaw, Fats Waller, Frank Sinatra and Glenn Miller ) contained and were sent to the GIs from home as a " knapsack - expenditure" to strengthen the moral fiber.

V- Discs were during the union "recording ban" ( August 1942-November 1944 ) in the United States the only authorized recordings and productions with instrumental musicians.
