About this Item

"My reason for putting together this collection was to provide musicians and dance leaders with a basic source book of the more common couple dances they're likely to run across in American traditional dancing, and to serve as a reminder of what's available for the active musician. In most bands I've been in, the choice of what tune to play for a given couple dance is made from whatever small mental list of current favorites resides in the melody player's heads. This can lead to a certain repetitiousness after a while, especially if you're doing more than one or two jobs per week. A wonderful tune is discovered, added to the limited list and played feverishly for a few weeks, then replaced by another. This is only natural, but with variety being the spice of music I've often thought it would be convenient to have, in one place, a wide selection of tunes to choose from when the band is stuck for something to play besides the current repertoire. Large collections of solely couple dance music are rare, and musicians wanting a wide variety at their fingertips in a performance situation might have to carry around five to twenty separate small collections to cover an adequate range of requests." This book has 244 pages and is profusely illustrated with musical scores. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoever. Overall, this is a VERY GOOD copy of this SCARCE title. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 065062
