(1998/Cedar) 22 tracks VICTOR SILVESTER & HIS BALLROOM ORCHESTRA Victor Silvester became very popular throughout the world with his unique style in strict tempo records for dancing. In the thirties and forties he only had one other strict tempo orchestra in competition with him. Namely that of Josephine Bradley whose orchestra was sometimes directed in the recording studio by Geraldo. Silvester had learned the piano as a boy, studying at the London College of Music. This proved to be a great asset in the forming of his orchestra. The master began his career as a dancing instructor at a salary of one pound per week. At the age of twenty two Silvester won the World Dancing Championship and opened his new dancing school in Bond Street, London People came from all over the world to learn dance there. The success of his records in Britain soon spread to Europe, Australia, South Africa, and even in India they were doing the Quickstep! All the dancing schools were using his records. Year after year Silvester´s records were top sellers in numerous countries and were also used in cinemas, theatres and skating rinks. This outstanding popularity of Victor´s records automatically meant that the BBC were anxious to secure his services and in 1941 he devised the world famous radio programme ´´The Dancing Club´´, to which some 0 10,000,000 listeners tuned in to his weekly broadcasts.

CD on Bear Family RECORDS RECORDS by Various Artists - Bear Family RECORDS - A Taste Of Bear Family RECORDS Bear Family Records – Making old music feel young again! Since 1975, Bear Family has been reissuing state-of-the-art LPs and CDs. In fact, label founder Richard Weize has repeatedly said that if he had more money, he would only issue more records. Although associated with fanatically complete editions, Bear Family should be equally renowned for thematic compilations: check out the extensive single CD series and boxes devoted to subjects as diverse as the year-by-year history of R&B and soul music (´Blowin´ the Fuse,´ ´Sweet Soul Music´ and funk coming soon), the year-by-year history of country music (´Dim Lights, Thick Smoke & Hillbilly Music´); musical histories of the Vietnam War (´Next Stop Is Vietnam´) and nuclear age songs (´Atomic Platters´); Jewish music recorded in Germany during the Nazi era (´Beyond Recall´); calypso music recorded in Trinidad (´West Indian Rhythm´). Look out for Bear Family´s profiles of unjustly forgotten singer-songwriters like Jim Ford, and DVDs of classic blues, country and rock ´n´ roll artists, and so much more. And let´s not forget those career-encompassing or golden era-encompassing sets of rock ´n´ roll icons including Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Ricky Nelson, the Everly Brothers, Fats Domino, Bill Haley, Duane Eddy, or the Beatles´ Hamburg recordings. Or similarly definitive sets of country legends like the Carter Family, Johnny Cash, Jimmie Rodgers, Bob Wills, Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Ernest Tubb, Hank Snow, Flatt & Scruggs and Bill Monroe, to name a few. Or blues/R&B sets by Freddie King, Louis Jordan, the Platters, and many more. Bear Family has also devoted lavish boxes or definitive CDs to trailblazers, neglected geniuses, or simply great musicians who deserve to be better known. Perhaps only Bear Family would devote an entire box to artists like Jimmie Driftwood (the folklorist who composed Battle Of New Orleans ), Cliff Bruner andis Texas Wanderers, or risqué blues legend Julia Lee. These days, digital downloads and out-of-copyright laws have cheapened some of this great music, but at Bear Family it is always presented with the loving attention to detail that it deserves. Every set includes elements that no other reissues can touch: fabulously restored sound, lavishly illustrated booklets or hard-covered LP-size books with fanatically complete discographies, unpublished photos, and definitive texts from some of the world´s best writers. In some cases, you might be able to get the music cheaper elsewhere, but you will never get the 360-degree Bear Family experience anywhere else. Critic Dave Marsh said, ´´In the confines of my office are 52 Bear Family box sets. Each is a part of my life´s education, an example of how to do things not just completely but right, how to treasure music for the right reasons, not just because it´s a thrill.´´ And, finally, a word about Bear Family´s mail order business. There are 30,000 titles encompassing too many genres to mention. Hassle-free ordering. Worldwide shipping. And a reputation built on customer service since 1975! Bear Family Records – Number 1 in high quality reissues. Country, rockabilly, beat, soul, r&b; rock ´n´ roll, schlager, teenbeat, bluegrass, soul, western swing, cajun, calypso and much more… Here´s just a taste of what Bear Family Records has to offer: Charlie Walker – Honky Tonk Women It´s true that Charlie had second thoughts before recording this Rolling Stones classic, but we´re glad he did it because we think it´s the ultimate version. Our 5-CD Charlie Walker boxed set ´Pick Me Up On Your Way Down´ is a must-have for any serious fan of genuine honky tonk music! Louvin Brothers – Satan Is Real Harmony singing rarely gets any better than the Louvin Bros.

Our 8-CD boxed set ´Close Harmony´ presents their complete recordings. Buddy Covelle – Lorraine Loud, wild, and nearly out-of-control. That was Buddy Covelle. He´s on one of our 27-volume rockabilly series ´That´ll Flat Git It.´ Yes, that´s 27 individual volumes of primo rockabilly…with more planned.
