Come Dancing in the 30s, 40s & 50s
How many times had you been tempted to roll up the carpet and trip the light fantastic whenever 'Come Dancing' was on the box? Then enjoy our collection of 30 years of classic dance hits and favourites. Step it out to 3 CDs and over 60 terpsichorean favourites.
For almost 50 years we watched (assuming we weren’t dancing, of course!) elegantly-clad dancers displaying their prowess in the waltz, fox-trot, tango, samba, cha-cha and more energetic swing. And when the new-fangled rock ’n’ roll arrived, there they were jiving away just like their younger counterparts! Here we present the best of them. All-time favourites performed by the original artists: some of the greatest dance orchestras, vocalists and bands of all time.
Including: Dancing In The Dark - Ambrose; Tea For Two Cha Cha - Tommy Dorsey; Mambo Italiano - Rosemary Clooney; Blue Tango - Ray Martin; The Wedding Samba - Edmundo Ros; The Continental - Lew Stone; Change Partners - Carroll Gibbons; Begin The Beguine - Artie Shaw; Jeepers Creepers - Paul Whiteman and his Swing Vocals; South Of The Border - Joe Loss and his Orchestra; September In The Rain - Jack Hylton and his Orchestra; Mambo Italiano – Rosemary Clooney; Cherry Pink And Apple Blossom White – Eddie Calvert; Hot Toddy - Ted Heath and his Orchestra, Sway – Dean Martin; Rock Around The Clock – Bill Haley and his Comets; Jailhouse Rock – Elvis Presley; Peggy Sue – Buddy Holly, and many more ....
