Country at its BEST!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"James Last has been recording now for well over 35 years, and, like a very good wine, he gets better and better! This offering, released last fall, is a great collection of country favorites, done in the best way possible, by the world's best muisician! Songs that are particularly appealing, to me, are "Lying Eyes", and "The Most Beautiful Girl". But all the tracks are special, for they reflect the enthusiasm particular to James Last. What is most noticable in this recording, as with most of Hansi's recordings, is the STRINGS! If you like violins, this record is a MUST! I don't think anyone compares to Hansi when it comes to the STRINGS! But there's more, as in most James Last recordings, you are in for a added bonus! Spectacular brass, and Hansi's trademark bass guitar, as well as other guitars, a perfect mix. Considering that I have just about every recording Hansi has produced, it never amazes me, for I have come to expect this quality of music. With this album, Hansi has not dissappointed this listener, it is another gem that any lister must hear for himself/herself, and see if he/she doesn't agree that James Last brings forth an extra dimension to the instrumentals so popular in the past, and yet, so contemporary in the manner Hansi performs for us! I say, in a word...YAHOO!!!!!"
