Buddy Weaver Music is the copyright owner of Blue Star Records.  Some episodes of this podcast will be presenting the Blue Star Records album collection.  Here is BS 1011 "Blue Star Jubilee".  

Released in November 1964, this was a three-record album set that captured the first ever gathering of live musicians who recorded for Blue Star Records, staff recording artists, and one-thousand one-hundred thirty-six dancers in the Sam Houston Coliseum for a one-night dance.

This is part one of two featuring the album.  Step back in time and soak up the excitement.

A reel-to-reel tape recording of a live dance held in Honolulu, Hawaii featuring the calling of Frank Lane, Marshall Flippo, and Dick Enderle.  Frank and Marshall were considered the top two callers in the country at the time while Dick was an up-and-coming traveling caller.

Nearly sixty-years of age hasn't affected the finished product in this episode. There is occasional distortion caused by either the amplifier output being too loud or the microphone input being set too high.  This doesn't take away from the excellence of these three callers.

The tape comes from the Frank Waters collection

This episode we feature a vintage Blue Star Records long-play album recorded by Marshall Flippo.  Released in August 1964 as Blue Star 1010, "The Best Collection Of New Squares Yet By Marshall Flippo On Blue Star ... Of Course"

This is Marshall's seventh recorded album.  Here you begin to see MWSD evolving with the introduction of the call "Swing Thru" and other Ocean Wave type actions.  Great calling and great music.
