I love all of these songs and reminds me of listening to my moms old record player, running around and singing songs with my brush as a microphone.

Art Laobe's "60 Killer Oldies" is a 4 CD collection of some of the greatest music of all time.
One of the CD's is entitled, "Memories of El Monte: The roots of L.A.'s Rock and Roll." The first song on that CD is "Memories of El Monte." Here are just a few of the words to that song:
If they only had those dances again,
I'd know where to find you and all my old friends...
Earth angel, earth angel will you be mine at El Monte...
If we could go back to
The days of the past,
I'd show you a love
A love that would last.
O I remember those wonderful
Dances in El Monte.
In El Monte.
I grew up in the San Bernardino area and all my friends used to go to those dances at the American Legion Hall in El Monte during the 1960's. I never did get to go to any of the dances in El Monte, but had always wanted to. I always danced at the National Guard Armory in Riverside, the VFW Hall in Rialto, or the Swing Auditorium in San Bernardino or the Kaiser Dome.
All of the songs on these CDs invoke emotions in me that bring both laughter and tears and they always give me a longing for the "Good O' Days." Now day it seems as though the only way to go to a dance is to go to a bar. Back then, there were dances everywhere. Bar hopping isn't my style, but I miss those old dances including the ones in peoples garages or living rooms.
Art Laboe used to be a DJ on KRLA from Pasadena. KRLA and XPRS were my two favorite radio stations. I don't even know if KRLA even exists any more since I no longer live in the Southern California area.
Anyway, the songs on these CDs remind me of the dances, the radio, my first boy friend, my first love, my marriage, my first child, and my youth. O to be young and in love again!

Hello....Back about 7 years ago, I got my dream car, a fire red '64 Impala. I bought all of Art's cassette that were available at the time, a must have to go along with my beautiful dream car and cruisin the streets of the Bay Area.
In the course of the last 7 years, they have either gotten worn out or just lost. I love all of these songs and reminds me of listening to my moms old record player, running around and singing songs with my brush as a microphone.
A must-have for any helpless romantic like myself.
Enjoy!!

The songs on all 4 cds are great, they bring back alot of memories. I listen to them every morning while getting ready for work and while driving home. I even listen to them on the weekends when doing my housework and my cooking. I just love them!
