From the back cover: The heyday of the dance band era has faded from the scene. The war, spiraling prices, home entertainment, television, the lure of big money for studio musicians all have conspired to bring about the demise of the jammed packed ballrooms, the countless famous bands and their unforgettable one-nighter tours. Few bands remain today from those glory years when all America was dancing. One of the survivors, and still among the most popular aggregations is Johnny Long and his orchestra. The band they call "Young America's Favorite." The famed left-handed violinist and his outfit continue to entice the dancers and the crowds still congregate around the bandstand.
