It is some time since we have heard from Ross Mitchell with his Dance And Listen Label, I am pleased to say that a new release is now available called "Dance Night Collection". Catalogue number DLD 1100
OK ! It's a compilation CD but with a difference - 31 tracks on this special edition.
Ross has selected from his vast library tunes requested by the dancers. I did say this CD is different with SIX COMPLETELY NEW TRACKS that include the Quickstep "T' ain't What You Do", two beautiful Foxtrots "Once In A While" and "My Funny Valentine".
I have a feeling you will be hearing these Foxtrots in the Ballrooms throughout the Country.
Moving to the new Latin tracks with a Cha Cha Cha titled "In These Shoes" and a couple of Rumbas called " Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" and "Out Of Reach", these tracks I am sure will be very popular with the Latin Dancers.
Back to some of the compilation tracks. Ross has included "Onedin Line" (Waltz), "Hernando's Hideaway" (Tango), "Iko Iko" (Samba), "I Love You 'Cause I want To" (Jive).
With the high cost of producing Dance CDs I am wondering if this will become a new trend by including and adding new tracks to compilation CDs, Ross is certainly leading the way.
This is an excellent CD and certainly worth adding to your library.
