James Last - Russland Erinnerungen (1977)
And one more trip to Russia, this time again with James Last, the more famous brother of Robert. As you know, Mr. Last likes to travel around the world and to visit other civilizations. In 1977 he remembered some of Russia´s favorite tunes, and this is the record which has the famous "Der einsame Hirte" ("The Lonely Shepherd") on it. Written by Hansi himself, it features panpipe virtuoso Gheorghe Zamfir from Romania on the... make your guess.. yes, the panpipe. If you´re talking panpipes, forget about fake Indios in your pedestrian precinct. You cannot get around Gheorghe Zamfir, he´s THE icon of the panflute. Two legends together on this great record, who could ask for more?
