Cyril Stapleton's Dance In [1969]

Dance - in Intro
Help Yourself
Little Arrows
Scarborough Fair
Build Me Up Buttercup
Big Spender
With A Little Help From My Friends

Groovy collection of instrumentals with wordless vocals sounds in parts like a James Last Non Stop Dancing album, but this just seems a bit better than that, because although the superb arrangements by Ken Woodman are quite traditional, the rhythm section is unlike any Cyril Stapleton produced before in its use of fuzz guitar.
Recommended for all lovers of easy listening and 60s pop.
Ripped as 2 non stop medleys.
