Product description

Product Description

Following the runaway success of AVID's earlier release
Ballroom Dancing: The Essential Collection (AVC 896) and a flood of emails
demanding we give him his own CD, we are pleased to present an entire
double CD devoted to the greatest British band leader of the 20th
century...Joshua Alexander Loss, better known as just plain Joe Loss!
We begin our story way back in 1933 with a side from his very first
recording session titled Happy Endings which includes Joe's first signature
tune "Let's Dance At The Make Believe Ballroom."
Here we feature Joe performing with top vocalists of the day Monte Ray and
Chick Henderson as well as his fine instrumental work like Woodchoppers
Ball, Oasis and Southern Fried.
As we discovered with the "Ballroom Dancing" CD Joe became synonymous with
strict tempo dance records and CD2 is rightly made up of these sides
recorded between 1949 and 1956.
Joe continued performing for nearly sixty years before sadly passing away
in 1990 at the age of 80 the same year that he gave up the baton!
