The Shadows: Dance On!


This was written as an instrumental by the members of the vocal group the Avons, Valerie Murtagh, Elaine Murtagh and Ray Adams.

It was recorded on November 21, 1962, and released on December 7. It went to No 1 in Britain. I don’t think it was released in America. What a brilliantly distinctive sound they had.

I think this 1967 video is the same recording with inferior sound quality but the dancers are priceless.

Lyrics were added by Marcel Stellman and the song was recorded by Kathy Kirby, who reached No 11 in Britain in 1963.
