Spectacular! Thanks everyone.

Although I'm a bit skeptical about that being a cover of Diga Diga Doo by The Careless Lovers. They're a local band (to me) and I've never heard them play that...

[Answered] various ILHC 2012 showcase songs

Hey guys - just looked at the new ILHC showcases *drool*... Some fantastic talent.

The third one is Bag's Groove by The Red Holloway Quartet. I can't figure out who the second one is by... it's definitely a version of "I've Found A New Baby"...never heard this one before, though.

Appreciate the help you guys. The CD looks fantastic, however I'm wondering if there's a way to digitally download it instead of buying the hard copy CD. Emusic perhaps?

And yeah, you're right that is the version from Swing Kids. I always get those mixed up. :roll:

[Answered] ILHC 2010 - all invitational J&J

Hey everyone, I was watching the ILHC 2010 Invitational J&J and I couldn't help but try and identify the fantastic song selection they had in this J&J. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBt1nRf3Hsk&feature=related I'm just missing the 2nd, 4th, 5th and 6th couples' songs.

Not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but there's also "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" (The Careless Lovers version is fantastic)

A good one is "Blues My Naughty Sweetie Gives To Me" by Sidney Bechet off the album "The Fabulous Sidney Bechet".

It's nearly 6 minutes long and maintains a solid, upbeat tempo throughout.

Thanks for all the feedback guys. Yeah 128kpbs isn't that bad at all. I guess it mostly depends on how old the recording is and the quality of the speakers it's being played through.

That's an interesting test. Huh. Might give it a shot!
I was just playing some of my songs on my surround sound system at home and I could honestly not notice the difference... Although I don't know if that's true for other sound systems at venues.

Do you mean the 1954 recording (from "The Last Recordings") that lasts about 6 minutes and is around 185 bpm? It has a bass solo and a set of drum breaks, so some couples are going to be screwed. (It's a great recording, though. I'd totally play it at a dance.) Yes, it's the '54 recording which is ...

Audio Quality When DJing?

I was wondering, do any of you notice any difference (when dancing or DJing) between 128kbps and higher kbps songs? I have a number of songs that are 128/190kbps and I'm not sure if that will affect the quality of the sound when DJing in general. I was considering "re-buying" some of my tunes in a h...

Moppin' And Boppin' by Fats Waller is a great example of the whole intro dilemma. It's a great tune, except that the intro borders on 30-35 seconds... which may seem like forever to newer dancers?

Shame.
