Bob Howell and Ollie Mae Ray have published an excellent book titled ” Easy Level Solo Dances— The Bob Howell Collection.” The book is available from Siddle and Ray Publications for Dance, 1017 Williamsburg Drive, Charleston, IL, 61920. One of the first dances in the book is a “Golden Oldie” done to the tune of Ally Cat (ATCO 45-6226). The record can still be ordered from some record shops or from Wagon Wheel Records Even though this is an old tune, it still makes a hit with younger generations because the music is excellent and the dance is quite different from the usual solo routine.
