What a dance band...so smooth...so lyrical...th e best of the big bands (even better than Glenn's band). Begin the beguine never sounded better

To hear Artie Shaw tell it, Begin the Beguine was suppose to be a sort of warm up track at the band's first recording date for RCA Victor; Indian Love Call, the next tune recorded, was seen as the song with the biggest commercial appeal.

If Shaw had recorded only Begin the Beguine his place in history would still have been secured.

God Bless Dick Johnson who led the band for many years! Memories of Dick playing this song one night in Newport, RI many years ago

If this song doesn't make you want to take your sweetie and just start dancin', then you should probably go home and lie down, because there's a good chance that you're dead. Easy to see, isn't it, how people can talk about dancing as "public foreplay." :-)
