Ray McVay And His Orchestra Play For Sequence Dancing (1970)

Our thanks again go to Al Gates from Perth, West Australia for this fine 1970 album of Ballroom dancing from Scotland's Ray McVay.

Highly prolific with his albums for dancing in the 1960s and 70s, Ray McVay began his career as Musical Director for Larry Parnes, backing all the rock'n'roll stars from Parnes' stable on tour, later leading the Glenn Miller Orchestra (UK) who I understand he still leads today.

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