"Moon River" Pan Am North Stars Steel Orchestra(1962)

The top steelbands of the nineteen sixties were also excellent dance bands.

From their Album "Pan Am North Stars" (1962) the band performs a beautiful ,slow dance version of the Johnny Mercer/Henry Mancini composition "Moon River" .

This Academy award winning song was featured in the 1961 movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's"(Audrey Hepburn)

This is a "Master-piece". It is also one of my favorite tunes. Reminds me of great times in the past.Keep it coming.

You are so right, Mrs P.!  the tune sends you in a whirl,  and Panam was hot those days and played sweet. Bet if you play this to all ages now, they hit the floor!

Ahhh -- sweet, romantic steel band dance music.  This so reminds me of the good old days when we could talk endearingly to our partner/lover while dancing. Even if you could not dance, you could sway and enjoy.  Moon River was one of my favorite songs. Thanks for the memories.

Great stuff. Bands today, have lost that touch. This is real music. They do not play music like this anymore, only (like the Mighty Squibby sang many years ago,) a whole lot of "brim-bram."

During the first few bars of this track, the guys grouped together chit-chatting over drinks would suddenly "bee-line" to the females.

I, smiling, would say, "May I have the honor of this dance?".

Her warmth, her fragrance (April In Paris?).......

The track ends, but you hesitate a bit for DJ to encore....

Now Glen, after the "cheek-to-cheek" you escort the lady back to her seat and thank her.

Why do Men (we good Gentlemen) have to get old?
