That's the one I was thinking of - Has a great "Oh, Lady Be Good", "Bird Calls", "Jumpin At The Woodside" & "Basie Boogie" etc on it.

Another Basie version of "Dinah" that I really like is a live one from The Golden Years, Vol. 3. It's only about two minutes long, but I think the energy and tempo are great.

I Can't Dance (I Got Ants in My Pants) by Georgia Washboard Stompers

Any version of Old Man Mose that I've found. The Wingy Manone version is great as are the Louis Armstrong versions.

Mahzel by Benny Goodman

Yeah, Waterloo has some in stock.

Jeff, if you have a problem ordering it. PM me. While the band is broken up, the singer (Alice Spencer) still plays a few times a month in various other bands (ACME Song Co. being the most popular for dancers).

She played the Austin Lindy Exchange last year. A live recording of that event will be released in the near future (I don't know the exact date). If you like "Drop Me Off In Harlem", you will probably like the ALX album.

Nathan

PS - The second album by Victrola is not an ideal record for dancing. It is good for listening though.
Waterloo records is out of stock. Anybody have any ideas on how to get a copy?

Ha! You have got to hear the notorious 1938 Eddy Duchin recording of that song. It's a pretty jumpy arrangement for his band which usually played 'society' type music. But on this recording not only is he swinging, but his female vocalist is singing the phrase "fuck it" at times instead of singing "bucket". She does it repeatedly. Lots of laffs.

And the other side of the record has likely one of the few if any Swing arrangements he ever did. "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea."

Likely "OMMose" has come out on CD by now.

Good companion piece to the Bix/Joe Venuti side where Venuti is singing "Barnacle Bill the Shithead"
