Dance Talkin' - Alan Tew Orchestra (1979)



Here we have what I believe to be the very last album from the Alan Tew Orchestra!

A great album, it is a mix of classic Bee Gees songs given faithful, yet inventive arrangements, mostly instrumental, but with some chorus vocals.

The big disco hits are my picks from this, although the slower tracks are very nice too!

It is billed as an album for dancing and this is shown on the rear sleeve, but apart from a Paso Doblé on Words, a Tango, and a couple of Waltzes, I don't buy it! I don't think there's any way Stayin' Alive and More Than A Woman are quicksteps, for example!

One I have been after for a while in good condition, it sounds great and I hope you enjoy it and please comment if you do!
