Yeah, Frank Sinatra's last real record was recorded in 1984 (the Duet albums of the mid 1990s don't really count), the album is called LA is My Lady. LA is My Lady has some attempts at pop music of the time on it, specifically the title track. But, for the purposes of this group, it does have a vers...

I try to think how I would dance different dances to a song before I throw it into the rotation. How easy it for the average dancer to six count/jitterbug/east coast vs Lindy vs Bal, Shag, Blues, etc... Then I tag it in the comments. I use the tag info to pull lists as I DJ. As to the first post in ...

Aerosmith did a version of "Big Ten Inch Record", which I know of mostly from the Bullmoose Jackson version. It is off Toys in the Attic, which is probably the most famous Aerosmith record from the 1970s, "Walk This Way" and "Sweet Emotion" are also on the album. Not a bad song, six count friendly, ...

Never played it a dance, But, they do have swing dancing in the video... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLgfHziJdX0 I imagine that if we were all swing dancing and DJing back in 1984, it would have been a hit in the way that Candyman was a few years back. I do like to play George Michael's "Fast Lov...

Perhaps, the eMusic UK folks are not being forced to convert to a new plan. It is pretty clear when I check my account info, I convert to the new plan next week).

Interestingly, their subscription model doesn't appear to affect existing customers. As people's plans expire, they are being forced to convert to the basic model or whatever it is called. Mine automatically converts next week. But, I know of another DJ that has until Feb 2010. It all depends on ho...

If you bought them all of U.S. eMusic, using the best plan available today, it would cost $8,914. So the current bid looks to be a better deal.

On the other hand, you have the $900 postage and you have to store all of the discs somewhere.

I went through a quick pass of the albums, added them to my New addition list, I have not updated the A-L, M-Z lists, since A-L is maxed out at 500, I either need to make a third list or rebalance them somehow.
