Double CD release containing 52 tracks from this world famous organist. (mono)
Following on from the success of Jasmine's Jackie Davis and Lenny Dee releases comes "Skate On" by arguably one of the most successful organists of the 1950's, Ken Griffin. Featuring the three million seller "Cuckoo Waltz" and the popular "You, You, You Are The One".
Ken Griffin was a successful musician in skating rinks across the United States and recorded in excess of 20 albums. Together with his charting hits Ken composed many great tunes such as "Bumble Bee On A Bender" and "Lonesome". This is a veritable feast of old favourites, novelties, hits, the familiar and the unfamiliar, the common place and the rare. Justly this is first class entertainment from one of America's most popular, personable and unassuming organists.
