TOP 500 REVIEWERon 11 November 2008
I have several of the Pulse series "The Dance Band Years" which, although basic, represent excellent value for money. The generic title is a bit of a misnomer in this case though, given that the earliest track on this reissue dates from July 1939, by which time the dance band years were pretty well over. Joe Loss was one of the few who proved the exception, because he continued to lead his band until early 1990, in which year he died at the age of 80. He owed his success to the ability to adapt to the wide range of music within the dance band idiom.

This compilation presents a judicious selection of Joe's cover versions of other bands' hits (including Glenn Miller's "In The Mood", Teddy Powell's "In Pinetop's Footsteps", and Charlie Barnet's "Skyliner"), romantic ballads, some of which feature Chick Henderson, whose career was sadly cut short soon after. Sound quality is excellent, and shows off what was a first-rate swinging band.
