Recording information by APHGOLD

Having enjoyed many of the Flash Performances from around the world, by friends who like to dance and which get me bouncing around the room, there have been a few songs which I thought would be really good to make a Flash dance with. One of them which I have always enjoyed and thought would work the imagination of some of our modern day dancing friends and make something special, is this 1966 Hollies number Stop,Stop,Stop.
The reason it would work is because going back to December 1966, the boys and me were enjoying ourselves in a club in South London and on came this song which we danced to. Not quite the end of the story as when a number of people who sat the dance out, watched us dancing and realized it was good to move around to, made the DJ put it on again. Before he did, a number of tables were cleared and six of us led the way on the table tops and nearly the whole place ended up dancing. That was some special time for us all and the song always brings a smile to my face.

"Stop Stop Stop" is a song by British pop group The Hollies that was written by group members Allan Clarke, Tony Hicks, Graham Nash and was a rewrite of an earlier song by the group. The song was released as a single by the Parlophone label in October 1966 and was released around the same time in the United States by Imperial Records. It was the last single that The Hollies released that year and became a worldwide hit reaching the top 10 of the singles charts in 8 countries, including at #1 in Canada.

"Stop Stop Stop" is notable for being one of the few recordings by the group that feature Tony Hicks playing the banjo, and was the only song with that instrument to be performed live by the group.The song – like most others by the group – feature a three-part vocal harmony between Clarke, Hicks, and Nash. The song was recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, England and was produced by Ron Richards.

Funnily enough, sop, stop, stop was what people would shout if ever I tried to dance! Another great performance to go with your memory of your own flash dance!

Ahhhhh I wish I could have been there Tony. Sounds like so much fun. I'm dancing here in my studio (no table though).
You chose a great one my friend. I can picture this in my mind's eye.
I have danced on a table in my life a time or two.
Grand performance Tony.
