Playing tracks by
James Last, Max Gregor and His Orchestra, Joe Tex, Brooker Newberry III, Sharon Redd and more.
Recorded this last year after picking up a box of James Last at a car boot and never got around to uploading it, so after searching for a bit more information on James Last and Max Gregor I was sad to hear the news that they had both passed away in summer (2015).
I think every record collector some how inherits a few James Last records! Known for his 70s party cover versions and easy listening, but dig a bit deeper and you find great live musicians playing some funky breaks with great brass and drums!
German born 'Hansi' Last was a composer who in the words of wikipedia was derided by critics and purists as the "king of elevator music" or "acoustic porridge" but with over 500 albums and 70 million albums sold worldwide you have to give him credit and the least I can do is dedicate this to - James Last, Max Gregor and Bunny Rugs of Third World!
Mix also contains some early Masters at Work, De La Soul & Mai Tai amongst others.
