Bert Kaempfert: The Bert Kaempfert Decca Collection (24-CD)


Throughout his career as a bandleader, from the late 1950s until his untimely death on June 21, 1980, Bert Kaempfert was loyal to two famous record labels: the German Polydor and the American Decca label. After Kaempfert's Polydor catalog was re-released in various CD editions in the past and thrilled old and new fans, a 24-CD box on his 100th birthday is shining a spotlight on his Decca albums released in the USA for the first time worldwide. Although the repertoire of Kaempfert's Decca and Polydor albums overlaps, this collection of American albums from 1958 to 1970 is a treasure trove of Kaempfert's most important recordings viewed through a whole new lens.

With 'The Bert Kaempfert Decca Collection' you can not only indulge in first-class music enjoyment, but also relive the fact that Bert Kaempfert's success story was largely based on his American hits. Although Bert Kaempfert recorded all of his albums in Hamburg, as a German export hit in the USA, his songs always charted there first and only then returned to Germany as an aftereffect. This has never happened before, and never again since: a German musician became one of the greats in the USA with swinging orchestral music and songs of an international standard.

1) April In Portugal
2) Wonderland By Night
3) The Wonderland Of Bert Kaempfert

Bert Kaempfert

Hamburg orchestra chief, arranger and composer was born in Hamburg on 16 October 1923 and was the most successful German composer and orchestra chief after the Second World War before James Last. He began his career as a saxophonist in the orchestra of the Gdansk Radio Orchestra Hans Busch.

After the war Bert Kaempfert tingelte through English soldier clubs in Northern Germany. His first hits as producer and arranger were "Die Gitarre und das Meer" (Freddy, 1959) and "Morgen' (Ivo Robic, 1959). 1960 followed his own world hit "Wunderland bei Nacht', with which he achieved fame, success and gold records in the USA. "Afrikaan Beat' (1962), "A swingin' Safari' and "Red Roses for a blue Lady' were no less successful. As a composer he was responsible for the top hits "Spanish Eyes' (Al Martino, 1966) and "Strangers in the Night' (Frank Sinatra, 1966). But Bert Kaempfert missed his biggest chance in 1962, when he produced "My Bonnie' with the English singer Tony Sheridan.

At that time Bert Kaempfert engaged the still unknown Beatles, who were looking for a record deal. As "Beat Brothers' they played on the record. More than one LP did not come out of this short collaboration - today it is on the market as "Beatles in Hamburg' and helped the Beatles to a record deal at that time.
