Hollywood Hits Vol. 1 - Ray Davies Orchestra (1984)

A happy new year to all!

We kick off the new year with a great album from the Ray Davies Orchestra thanks to our regular contributor Al Gates from Australia.

The album is a nice mix of ballroom dancing music with all the usual dances included.

It is always nice to hear a Ray Davies / Button Down Brass album, and it is particularly good to hear this one from later in his career!

The most contemporary track on this album is a Cha Cha version of the theme from Fame, recently included on Lounge Legends' collection The Best Disco In Town, I had wondered which Ray Davies album it had originated on!

I hope you enjoy it and please comment if you do!

  3. Thanks for this wonderful album.

  4. Thanks. Dansan Records were not sold in record stores here. They were imports aimed at Ballroom Dancers, especially those aiming for competitions, and dance teachers.
    You mentioned that this is another one, so I'll look for any others.
    Thanks again.
