German orchestral pop-meister James Last has sold well over 50 million albums worldwide, with 206 gold records and 17 platinum. But, would you believe that not a single one of his records is domestically available, not even these two albums, which charted here in the States in 1972 and 1975, respectively! We?ve ventured into the Universal vaults and emerged with these two gems, both reissued here with remastered sound and new notes featuring quotes from the man himself. Two Collectors? Choice Music exclusives!
Avoid if you expect typical James Last

"I found this CD to be one of the worst purchases I have made. It fails on all counts. The vocals are shallow and unappealing and the recording quality is poor."
Excellent pop renditions

"Obviously, expectations differ in especially musical choices, and that is what makes the world go 'round. Having owned and loved the LP when it first came out, I was excited to finally see it on CD. I was not disappointed in the performances, renditions, or the quality of reproduction of the product. I have many associates who also purchased the CD, and the assessments are consistently excellent.
This was one of James Last's better interpretations of some popular music, especially with the very unique vocal arrangements. "Music From Across The Way" is truly excellent, as are other songs, despite the fact that instrumental arrangements may have been anbticipated by James Last fans. This is well worth the price of the CD."
