Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians – Dancing Room Only

Sleeve Notes:

Here is an album of favorites in that traditional Lombardo style that crowds dance floors whenever the Royal Canadians play. There is also a wealth of mood, melody, and lyric in the recording for those who enjoy just listening to Guy’s rich arrangements.

To enchanting instrumentals, Guy has added a selection of warm vocal stylings by Don Rodney, Bill Flannigan, Kenny Gardner, and the Lombardo Trio. There are wonderful memory songs, such as “I’ll See You in My Dreams,” and more recent standards, including “Autumn Leaves,” and “Our Love Is Here to Stay.”
Waltz fans haven’t been forgotten, either. For them, Guy has supplied “Now Is the Hour,” the popular “Around the World,” and a charming instrumental arrangement of “Fascination”— one of the loveliest of all three-quarter melodies.
These stylings are the kind that brought prominence to the Guy Lombardo orchestra more than three decades ago, and have kept the Royal Canadians at peak popularity for all these years. Today no other orchestra can claim greater fame over such a long period of time.
The popular tunes of the day may change, but the Guy Lombardo stylings, like the ones in this album, are timeless and basic. Guy has always played his music with the emphasis on melody; played it for easy, relaxed listening, and pleasant.
