Original Swing Dancers, Eddie Plunkett & Dottie Laster (Spokesfield) Swing Dancing like they did in the 1930's at Club Imperial. Nice example of pre 50's style St. Louis Shag!

Eddie Plunkett was born in 1922. People in St. Louis say he was one of the best Jitterbugs in his day in the 30's & 40's and was also great at Shag! His favorite band is Count Basie, he listens to his Basie records everyday!

* When Benny Goodmann played at The Fox in the late 1930's Eddie was "Jitterbug'n" in the isles! Benny Goodman said; "Well our music is make'n somebody feel really good tonight!"
His partner is Dottie Laster (Spokesfield) Everyone tried to swivel like Dottie in St. Louis, and not only could she move but apparently she had a massive record collection!
.........to be cont.
*These Clips are from the early 1970's but by then Eddie wasn't in the best health.
