Way back in the Twenties, on into the Thirties, the Forties and beyond, the public thronged to dance halls, lured by the lively atmosphere and buoyed up by romance, to dance the night away to the music of their favourite bands.
They bought records too, in the millions - all 78rpm, of course - and danced some more at home, practising the latest steps and generally having fun. To our eyes now, these were times of innocence, of simple joy, of mostly humdrum lifestyles, just ready for an injection of glamour.

Features & Highlights
- Starting with the hot dance styles of the mid-Twenties our compilation takes us deep into the heartland of the swing era, allowing us to sample the powerful sounds of the greatest bands from both sides of the Atlantic. The opening number is The Charleston, composed by jazz pianist James P Johnson and played here by the Savoy Orpheans, a top British orchestra.
- The Savoy Orpheans were well known for their broadcasts from the Savoy Hotel in London. Debroy Somers founded the band in 1923 but by the time they recorded the fine Rodgers & Hart number Blue Room, they were directed by US-born pianist Carroll Gibbons.
- Happy Feet introduces the heavy-weight talents of US bandleader Paul Whiteman and his vocal trio, known as the Rhythm Boys. They introduced the tune in a 1930 film, 'The King of Jazz
- Our final tracks further illustrate the splendid diversity of dance music styles.
