Cover Notes

When the story of popular entertainment in the twentieth century is written, much will be said, no doubt, about the advent of rock 'n' roll, the arrival of the Beatles, about punk and rap, hit parades and charts, and about the major pop stars of the day. For all that, no study would be complete without a thorough review of the world-wide obsession with organised social dance, the kind of thing known to our elders and betters as ballroom dancing, which dominated our mid-century social scene.

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.

Happy Feet lyrics - Paul Whiteman :

Happy feet!
I've got those hap-hap-happy feet!
Give them a low-down beat
And they begin dancing!
I've got those
Ten little tip-tap-tapping toes
When they hear a tune
I can't control the dancing, dear
To save my soul!
Those weary blues can't get into my shoes
Because my shoes refuse
To ever grow weary.
I keep cheerful on an earful
Of music sweet;
Cos I got those hap-hap-happy feet!

Customer Testimonials

  • "What a lovely selection of songs! The tracks are listed with the sales blurb above so I don't need to detail them. What I can say however is that these lovely old recordings have been cleaned up nicely and are free of crackles and pops, making them a good, clean vintage experience."

    "Your transfers are superb, thank you.  So many radio stations do not believe that there was music before The Beatles."
    Mr F, Suffolk

    "With Past Perfect you certainly get what you pay for - supreme quality, superb selection of tracks, excellent liner notes, a perfect package of music!" Mr JW, West Midlands
