A Collection of Dance Hall Classics

   This CD Compilation is representative of the artists and Musicians who made their mark playing the Texas Dance Hall Circuit. The Project was organized by the New Braunfels Museum of Art & Music in conjunction with Geronimo Trevino III whose book, "Dance Halls and Last Calls," provided both the inspiration and the historical research necessary to bring the project to fruition. A wonderful collection of legendary artists like Lefty Frizzell, Johnny Cash, Bob Wills and Floyd Tillman and a newer generation of Texas artists like Pat Green and Pauline Reese provide the signposts for a unique musical journey through the dance halls of Texas; a timeless adventure that makes you feel like you're standing on a sawdust dance floor, eagerly waiting for the next song to begin.


   Golden Eagle Music, Ted Daffan Records and Dragon Street Records provided 13 songs from their extensive collections of reel-to-reel tapes, rare record acetates and radio transcriptions and the remaining seven songs were taken from recordings by Texas singers/songwriters. The producers would like to thank the individual artists who donated songs for this project as well as Charles Cole of Golden Eagle Music, David Dennard of Dragon Street Records, and Dorathy Daffan Yannuzzi of Ted Daffan Records for their selfless efforts in making this compilation a reality, Thanks also go out Charles Gallagher, Craig D. Hills and Geronimo Trevino III whose research and tenacity have proven invaluable.
