Bert Kaempfert - A Swingin' Safari (1962)




I always wanted to present you this album from 1962, because it is one of Bert´s best albums ever. It was so good, that he released another African-sounding album named "Safari Swings Again" in 1977. Unfortunately the follow-up was not such a big success as this one. You may know this tune from the radio, maybe from other artists, who covered this great piece of music, but here´s the one and only original Bert Kaempfert, who actually wrote this song. Now you may take a seat in the zebra-striped Land Rover and go on safari with Bert...

Hi, This MPG is the theme song to one of the most popular game shows in USA history, called The Match Game.
It was hosted by Gene Rayburn.
everyone loved this show.
It was on in the 1970's. For years, but I think less than 10.

Anyway 20 years later I went to
see Gene in the play La Cage. It was in New Hope Pennsylvannia about 3 hours from my home.
The audience loved this little production.
At the end of the show Gene Received a standing ovation when he took time after this last show to talk about The Match Game.
Thanks for this wonderful music.

Sorry, no. I can understand that someone has legal issues about this one, because it´s easily available on CD. But I HAD to present this album, because it´s sooooo great! Please go out and buy the CD...

Anatoly, it´s highly illegal to post in-print CDs over here, so this was an exception. I love you all, but not as much that I´m going to pay high fees or go into jail for you. Maybe you should visit stax-o-wax.blogspot.com, I think she has the US-version up, it´s called "That Happy Feeling". Only one track is different there...
