Bert Kaempfert - Smile (1979)



This is Bert´s very last album before he died in 1980. I post it here, because there seem to be some fans of Bert around, who like to have more of him ;o) The album is great and contains some really funky stuff, contemporary at that time. One of my favorites is "Frisco Disco", a great disco-stomper and one of Bert´s original compositions of this album. He wrote it like so many great titles together with Herbert Rehbein, whom I have introduced before. The title-track "Smile" was written by Charlie Chaplin, who thought of that... Now, enjoy Bert´s music and smile for him...

Bert!

When I was a kid - back in the 1960's - we had a kiddie show host on TV called Sandy Becker. He used Bert's THAT HAPPY FEELING as his show closer.
Last week at the thrift store i found an lp called BERT KAEMPFERT- NOW! with a wild version of McCartney's great b-side, "Woman, oh Why".

Good choice! Thanks!

_Smile_ is from Chaplin's _City Lights_, his last "silent" film, right before _The Great Dictator_.
