Not sure it's quite the version off the film and you only get a short clip, so it's difficult to tell how good it would be overall.

I saw the Bernard Berkhout Orchestra at ALX last year and they were absolutely brilliant. I bought the CD at the gig, which is very good, but didn't quite capture the energy and fluidity that the live performance had. Maybe the dancers made the band play differently to when they were in the studio. ...

Haydn, when I've danced somewhere you've DJ'd at, I've always liked your stuff so keep it up. From my point of view, it is important for DJs to mix it up a bit. A dance I went to in London just before Christmas had several DJs taking turns across the night. In general it was a great night, though 5 ...

This is interesting. The video for Doll-Dagga Buzz-Buzz Zigetty-Zag... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BITnk3-D_Fw ...is pretty much the Mobscene Video. On Peter Loggins' site, he has the making of the bit of the video with the Lindy Hopping, which I believe he choreographed or help choreograph. Anyw...

Cab Calloway Hungarian Rhapsody No 2

Cab performs a version of Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No 2 in the film "Sensations of 1945" see clip on YouTube. It swings like mad.

Was this track ever released on record/CD?

Whoops. My mistake. Yep it was Breakaway that I meant. Anyway, having downloaded it and given it a run, I'm pretty damn impressed. It makes the music seem much more vibrant and works with not only iTunes, but Media Player as well and whatever Firefox uses to play tracks from download sites, so liste...

I have done some research and discovered that the Volume Logic software is protected against cracking using another product called Themida. It is the latter that is detected by the anti-virus as it is also used to hide viruses etc. In this case it is most probably a false positive and so should be f...

Well going by the 5 sample tracks on the Mosaic site, the Bing Crosby set sounds like it could be pretty damn nice. Much more jazzy than the norm for him.
