Historically, square dance albums – 33 1/3 vinyl and the 78-rpm shellac before that – were created for dancers that didn’t have a caller in their home area. Albums sales were incredible which gave rise to even more albums being produced. Much of the growth of square dancing can be attributed to the production of square dancing on albums. The albums were also a great resource for callers to learn new material by listening to the pros.
The callers featured on these recordings reads like a “who’s who” of square dancing from the sixties through the eighties. You will find Marshall Flippo, Mike Sikorsky, Ernie Kinney, Johnnie Wykoff, Bob Fisk, Jerry Helt, Dave Taylor, Mike Seastrom, Ron Schneider, Buddy Weaver and many more.
