@Linda Lee - a Solstice party! I like it :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm Rich in Washington:

I think someone already compiled an insane Tico Tico list on the old WFMU blog but I am sure there are at least 100 more versions since then.

I just recently became aware that the weird faces on the cover of Nurse With Wound's Dark Fat is that of James Last.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

You genuinely cannot be sad or anxious or angry listening to James Last. Proper balm. :-)
Avatar 5:12pm solo mon:

Rich oh what? That’s crazy.
Avatar 5:12pm Cp304:

If it was 70s Linda, then I should have said I wish I was older back then
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - really??? I didn't know that!!
Avatar 5:13pm solo mon:

Martinibomb elaborate please...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - a stolen truck? Mystery abounds!
Avatar 5:14pm solo mon:

Was he herb alperting or was herb alpert James lasting?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo mon - hmmm .... James Last did cover every genre that was going so I think he was covering the sound of Herb :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo mon - and now I am going to use both herb alberting and james lasting as verbs in every day conversation ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Linda Lee:

as a teenager in the 70s i can pretty safely say i wouldn't have gone for it. we did into the lounge/exotica/easy listening groove in the mid 80s though ~ lots of thrift shop treasure hunting then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Linda Lee:

we did get.
Avatar 5:17pm solo mon:

Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Linda Lee:

it was the covers that sucked us in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - same. This was the sound of every family party but I was far too sniffy then. I properly got into him probably late 80s/early 90s and then the floodgates opened ;-)
Avatar 5:17pm solo mon:

This music makes me want to speed shop at K Mart.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Linda Lee:

we had to mature a bit. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@solo mon - Yes!! And then go for smart cocktails :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I really want to have a cheesy 70s themed party now. Proper Abigail's Party stuff :-)
  5:18pm matty dread:

Love it :-) all x
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm Linda Lee:

this is a fantastic record.

Avatar 5:19pm zivilars:

great theme, DJ GG!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - I am going full jaunty today ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm Linda Lee:

a 70s theme is so easy, love. just stick with the color scheme & the music ~ instant 70s. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@zivilars - hello!!! How perfect!! :-D
Avatar 5:19pm solo mon:

me and my bored acid head friends started listening to the easy listening station when we came down. There was an amazing station called “sunny 910” and they would play this stuff. We just kind of all got hooked on the groovy music.

Would you try something for me, Ange? Would you?
Avatar 5:23pm zivilars:

I probably searched through millions of James Last "Nonstop Dancing" LP copies on flea makets in 1-german-mark-carboard-boxes ... :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm trying to get a copy of Abigail's Party for Modernists ;-)

It must be an amazing high number how much he sold of these
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@zivilars - and there are a million ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Linda Lee:

no doubt. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've got about 50 or so, and I'm still on the hunt for more! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Linda Lee:

honest, the music just aims to please!! much to be said for that. no demands. just wants to be liked.
Avatar 5:25pm zivilars:

DJ GG: You can never have enough! "Voodoo Party" is my favorite James Last record, although not a really typical one for him, I guess
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - fab, isn't it? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@zivilars - got some of that today! An excellent record! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Linda Lee:

it is. just what we would've rejected in the 70s! :-)
Avatar 5:26pm solo mon:

so. Square.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I do still kick myself that I missed seeing him in Brighton. I need a time machine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm Linda Lee:

when you're in the process of shaving your skull & trying on dog collars, ... no, not quite the feel we're after. :-)
Avatar 5:26pm zivilars:

When Hansi was in talk shows, he was always mumbling so terribly that you almost needed subtitles :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - or being a little hippie ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@zivilars - really? Was that shyness do you think?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm Linda Lee:

yes. being a little hippie too. :-) ~ let's get that time machine started. we'll see James & we'll see Fanny too. i missed them in LA by minutes..

@Linda Lee: you're welcome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:33pm Linda Lee:

hahaha!! :-) those little plastic earbuds were a gift..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm Linda Lee:

funny that there was always just one. i guess that was for mono. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - like a half Walkman ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm Linda Lee:

.. so we took right to the walkman as soon as it came out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - I was glued to that as well! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Ken Lee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:37pm Linda Lee:

oh god. first walkman, 84 or so: The Queen Is Dead on continual play.. along with Full Up, the Studio One comp :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Linda Lee:

now i see it must've been 86, for the Smiths.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Linda Lee:

there's a film idea: the story of the James Last singers on tour. has anyone done it?
Avatar 6:40pm Mr Fab:

We really need a modern-day James Last-type bandleader to make stuff like Coldplay fun. imagine medleys of jayZ/U2/Billie Ilish in an upbeat handclapping style.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Linda Lee:

whose song is this? i hear the song in my head, but i can't recall the name!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Rich in Washington:

Oh yeah, matty!
That clip's hilarious! I am pretty sure I played it on my Last tribute show when he passed away.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda Lee - not sure!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - snappy wardrobe! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm Rich in Washington:

James Last passed away the same day as Ornette Coleman, if memory serves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Linda Lee:

a one hitter maybe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - wow! I didn't know Ornette Coleman lived that long to be honest!
Avatar 6:45pm Cp304:

I remember having written 3 3 3 3 3 1 atop my music sheets clipped to my trombone in jr high for this song..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45pm Rich in Washington:

I'm looking at my show transciption. They actually died a few days apart, but Ornette died the night of my show, hours before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Cp304 - boom boom boom boom boom BOOM! :-)
Avatar 6:46pm Cp304:
