Arthur Murray: "Music for Dancing"

Arthur Murray was a pop icon of the mid-20th century.
Born as Moses Teichman, he was brought to the United States by his mother in 1897.
During WWI, living in North Carolina, he changed his name to something less German.

Some great details of his story - the mail-order dancing courses, the chain of studios, and television - HERE.

This particular album was released in 1960.
