Superior Dancing 4

DICK’S PICK…

Superior Dancing 4Today I was foxtrotting to Jim Reeves’ famous vocal: “I Love You Because”.  It was glorious.  I actually got some flight!

It’s probably my favorite Foxtrot, and it can be found on Superior Dancing Vol. IV.  Among the 20 tracks of Standard and Latin dances, there are many good vocals by original artists.

Gold Standard

DICK’S PICK…

Gold Standard CoverGOLD STANDARD by Ross Mitchell, His Band & Singers (DLD 1054, $27) is my favorite CD for Standard Dancing. I use it every day to practice. It has 32 tracks—9 Quicksteps, 8 Waltzes, 8 Foxtrots, 3 Tangos, and 3 Viennese Waltzes.

I like all 32 tracks, but my favorites are “Desert Song” (W), “Kisses in the Dark” (W), “When You Wish Upon A Star” (FT), “Moonlight Serenade (FT), “The Rain In Spain” (T), and “A New Fangled Tango”.

You’ll really like it!
