Come Dancing To The Pops - Ray McVay & His Orchestra (1970)




Another very nice album of Ballroom dance music courtesy of Al Gates of Perth, West Australia!

Featuring a tracklist of 60's pop songs arranged for Old Time and Modern Sequence dancing.

Thanks again to Al, please comment if you, like me, have enjoyed it!

Return Of The Champions - Ray McVay & His Orchestra (1969)




Another fine post from someone rapidly turning into this blog's best friend, Al Gates from Perth, West Australia!

This is an album I have seen a few times in the charity shops I go to locally, but so far I have not took a chance; I always seemed to have a few doubts about it.

These doubts have been well and truly quashed by this album rip I was recently sent by Al!

A fine album of Old Time and Modern Sequence dance music, it is also a great listen if you enjoy instrumental Easy listening or Big Band music!

Thanks again to Al for his efforts, and please comment if you enjoy this one, as I have!

The Stripper - David Rose And His Orchestra [1962]




When selecting an album to test my turntable's new stylus, I turned to this one, a recent find, and I was so pleased with the results, I have uploaded and blogged this one sooner than I had originally planned!

This is a very fine Easy album, in stereo, featuring nice swing arrangements of standards like My Heart Belongs To Daddy, Love For Sale, A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody, along with more tracks similar to the title track, such as Some Of These Days and Banned In Boston.

A wonderful trip back to the jet age, and what a cover, too!

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