Ten Inches For Lovers

If you're having a romantic dance date, here's your (brief) soundtrack from bandleader Paul Weston. This Columbia Records (CL 6162) 10" comes from 1951 during the LP format wars (Columbia's 10" version lost to everyone else's 12") [Ed note: insert "bigger is better joke here].

This disc was part of a series of "Dance Date*" albums from bandleaders such as Harry James, Xavier Cugat, Les Brown, Percy Faith, etc.

(*as noted on the cover: Trade Mark)

Side One Medley: You Were Meant For Me/Over The Rainbow/S'posin/How High The Moon

Side Two Medley: This Can't Be Love/Pennies From Heaven/Why Shouldn't I?/Embraceable You

Your Dance Date* with Paul Weston
