Another fine album from my series of classic Easy LP's from our BBC!
The BBC Northern Dance Orchestra were featured almost daily on many BBC Radio shows from their formation in 1956 until 1975 when it was re-named the BBC Northern Radio Orchestra, which was eventually disbanded by the corporation in 1985.
Many of its recordings were made at the Playhouse Theatre, here in Manchester, a fine old theatre which I had the pleasure of visiting with my mum and dad several times during the 1980's for recordings of Radio 2 comedy shows.
This record, however, was recorded at the famous Strawberry Studios in nearby Stockport due to the Playhouse not having stereo capability.
Their roots in Big Band music are very obvious, but do well the pop and latin tracks also featured here.
I hope you enjoy it and please comment if you do!
