Casa Musica - Ballroom Stars vol.1, Cat No CMDCD605
CD review by: Eva Allen
Casa Musica is the label you can always rely on and it seems this is Casa Musica's first volume of a new series. Everything indicates it is going to be a great one: I loved 75% of songs on this double CD: the Waltzes are really touching, the Tangos come with all you expect from a good tango, Foxtrots have immaculate character, Quicksteps make my feet wanna go on their own... Great double album.
