Johnny Long Plays For Saturday Night Date

Blue Prelude
Johnny Long Plays For Saturday Night Date
Vocals By Sandee Moore
Tops L1575
1957

It seems like most Tops records I find are either worn out or pressed poorly. This LP plays nicely and the quality of the big band covers are high. The sample above is the most dramatic track from the LP and Moore make an appearance about 2 minutes into the piece.

I did find one clipping, online from the Toledo Blade (1956) concerning Johnny Long: The popular southpaw and his orchestra favorites of the college set, return to Centennial Terrace this evening for a four night engagement. Johnny holds several attendance records at the suburban records at the suburban al fresco dancing center. This year he is featuring Sandee Moore, vocalist: Johnny Wells, the Long Shots and the Glee Club.

Side one:
Sweet Sue
Where Or When
Swinging Down The Lane
The Lady Is A Tramp
Daddy
Flamingo

Side Two:
Blue Prelude
Paradise
My Sin
One Dozen Roses
One O'Clock Jump
