The Elgart Touch/For Dancers Also Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Les Elgart's two hit albums, The Elgart Touch (1956) and For Dancers Also (1957), are combined on this single disc issued by Collector's Choice. Both of the records climbed into the Top 15 on the album charts, and marked the peak of his popularity as a bandleader and performer. In addition to the two complete original albums, the disc includes a bonus track of Elgart's only hit single, "Golden Arm," the main title theme to the Otto Preminger film The Man with the Golden Arm.
