Released in March 1962 for dancer's home practice.  While only twenty calls are used (the basic of MWSD at the time), they are put together in challenging combinations.  Marshall Flippo's presentation is excellent and shows how he had evolved as a caller from his previous album, covered in episode 323.

Buddy Weaver Music is the copyright owner of Blue Star Records.  This episode features Blue Star Records 1001, the first long-play album featuring Marshall Flippo.

Released in June 1961 and an excellent representation of the square dance music, calls, and style of the time.  For today's dancer, you may notice there are none of the "Ocean Wave" calls that are so popular today.  The pace of dancing is a bit quicker and is true "wind-in-your-face" dancing.  Marshall Flippo was the master of moving dancers smoothly from call to call.
