:: Non-Stop Dancing Medley 1 ::
There’s a cool cadre of bands that were popular in Southeast Asia during the sixties and seventies, playing a genre of tunes which I’ve seen referred to as “Off-Beat Music.” It’s basically instrumental dance music (A Go-Go, Fox Trot, Cha-Cha, etc.), a lot of the bands sounding sort of like a fuzzed out Shadows with lots of reverb and keyboards thrown in. The Stylers were one of the more popular of these bands, as they sure put out a lot of records, both on their own and as backing band for numerous female vocalists. This LP contains 6 medleys, each made up of 6 songs, for a total of “36 Great Hits.” Here’s the first medley off the album – dig the farfisa, washboard, whistles, and handclaps! If you’re itching for more cha-cha goodness, you might want to head over to Show & Tell Music for a copy of the fantastic Teen Dance Music from China & Malaysia while it’s still available.
