Collectors and Kaempfert fanatics may well ask themselves as they pick up this record, how it is that this is the first live recording to proudly take its place on their shelves. Have they missed an album or two somewhere along the line, or can this really be the frist ever "Live Kaempfert" recording?

The fact is, of course, as the truly initiated will already know, that this is not only the first ever live Kaempfert recording. But what's more, the concert at which it was recorded was the first time ever in Kaempfert's musical career that he appeared with his orchestra, live before a concert audience.

Longstanding writer of hits, musician and arranger supreme, it was nonetheless a totally new experience for the "Maestro" to stand on the podium of the Royal Albert Hall on the evening of 22.4.1974 and to voluntarily welcome several thousand strangers to be present at what had for him hitherto always been a private occasion, usually confined within studio walls. An evening with Bert Kaempfert conducting his own orchestra playing many of his own compositions live before an audience was truly history making.

The titles of those compositions will speak for themselves, as will also the unique musical atmosphere generated by Kaempfert himself as he conducts, on this record, for the first time publicly.
