    For the house of MDH, Land off a 1,000 dances means two things

    1. The Wrestling Album – Back in the day of Mean Gene, Jessie the Body Ventura, Hulk Hogan et al (1985) this song lead off side 1 and our oldest played it to death.

      Thanks!! I did spend some time researching this song. I listened to a few including Wilson Pickett’s. This choice was so simple.

      It doesn’t surprise me that you have memories with this group. They seemed Hedley-ish when I heard them.

      I find it wonderfully amazing that you were at Pine Knob in Clarkston MI for the recorded live show. Do you have a copy of the record? I have a copy of the only one I made, the Christmas one with Guy Lombardo.

      Lately I have been delving more into song history and finding groups I either didn’t know or had forgotten about, This song is one of those.

    I hadn’t thought about this one for years and years. Thanks for the memory.
