T. W. Ardy - Hammond Happiness (1970)
Werner Twardy was born in 1926 in Oberhausen, Germany, and died in 1977. He was a composer, arranger, producer and bandleader, active in almost every field of music from the 1950s to the 1970s: Typical German pop music (so-called Schlager), movie soundtrack music, German cover versions of Amerian hit recordings, and even Jazz. During his career, he worked with various record labels, for example Polydor. One of Werner´s pseudonyms was "T. W. Ardy". Under that name, he released lounge music recordings outside Germany.
And if you thought, that nobody could press Led Zeppelin´s "Whole Lotta Love" into strict easy-listening Hammond dancing rhythm, then you should listen to this.
