CD Reviews

Now This Is A Dance Band
Frank T. Murazzo | PLEASANTON, CALIFORNIA United States | 02/20/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have waited for quite some time for these releases, and they were finally released, put on one Disc. I had the original first copies and recorded them on tape for, I was wearing the orignals out, especially the "Dick Jurgens at the ARAGON BALLROOM", Listen to his CLEAR-mixtures of songs and see how everyone Danced to this band. His rendition of CUMUNA-was the first song I wore out on his original releases. Every time you would read a Critic on Dick Jurgens, most of the starting lines would be: "NOW THERE IS A DANCE BAND""
The Best of the Late 1930s-early 1940s
William M. Aul | La Jolla, CA United States | 12/20/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Dick Jurgens Orchestra was extraordinary. Unlike other orchestras, the "Jurgens sound" was unique and possesses a balance that offered listeners and dancers an experience unlike any other of the great bands. Add to that the venue of the Aragon Ballroom, and it is no surprise that the conoscenti of dance music have always sought out these rare recordings. No band leader of that era had greater talent than Dick Jurgens. This CD, more than any other, offers the best of Dick Jurgens.

"I am sorry that I cannot give you a personal rating for this item. I ordered this for a friend (John Hawkins). John is 91 years old and not only does he not own a computer, but has no intention of buying one. He sometimes asks me to check on a particular artist on band from the 30s or 40s and then I print out my findings and let him pick out what he wants. That is why you sometimes see his address for the product to be shipped to. However, I have asked him for his opinion of "Your Dance Date/At The Aragon Ballroom" and he rates it with 5 stars. I am ten years younger than John so my taste in music runs to the big bands of the 40s.
Thank you for the very good service that we have come to expect from Amazon."
