Dance On!

It’s too bad that more Americans don’t know about the Shadows. In the early sixtes, they were YUUGE in England, with sixteen tracks in the top ten of the UK singles charts. Somehow that success did not help them with the British invasion here.

“Dance On!” was one of their number one instrumentals in 1962. It was also recorded in a vocal version by British female soloist Kathy Kirby, whose version reached number 11 in the UK chart in September 1963.

Petula Clark recorded the song in French (“Je me sens bien auprès de toi”) and Italian (“Sto volentieri con te”) which made the Top 5 of the French and Italian charts. She also recorded an English version for album release on the Canadian market.

My version of this tune is basically a cover, with only a few small changes. I made a point of trying to capture some of Hank Marvin’s playing style in my own.
