"For Dancers Only" Question

On May 25, Ken Waxman wrote: <"For Dancers Only". Is this really a Marshall composition, not the old Jimmy Lunceford number?>

When I included the reference to "For Dancers Only", it was based on the information from the Sun Ra Arkestra under the direction of Marshall Alle= n CD "Song for the Sun" draft liner notes that I was looking at prior to seeing the actual CD itself. The way that "For Dancers Only" was referenced in the interview by Jim Macnie with Marshall Allen led me to mistakenly conclude that this might be one of the charts on the CD. As w= e know now, it is not.

I asked Marshall Allen prior to the May 26 Knitting Factory Sun Ra Arkest= ra under the direction of Marshall Allen concert what his recollection of th= e "For Dancers Only" reference was about during that interview with Jim Macnie and he replied that he was referring to the old Saturn LP album th= at originally had the title "For Dancers Only" when it was first released, which is now better known as "Holiday for Soul Dance".

I hope that clears up any confusion that may have been caused.
