Classic Lindy Tracks

Another 8 track – I’m really starting to like this service.

I’ve put together a bunch of truly great swing classics that you’re likely to hear a lot at dances. I’ve not tried to make a comprehensive list, nor have I even gone about this in a hugely consistent or scientific way… but suffice to say that any long-time lindyhopper will know all of these backwards, and if you’re new to collecting swing music, you need these tracks.
