And So To Bed 

The days, we spend in doing...the nights, in dreaming...

The mood may be serene, or bittersweet with memory...the love a reality, or an unfulfilled longing...the moment shared, or spent in solitude. But whatever the time or the setting, the songs dedicated to love heard in this album fully express the thoughts and emotions of lovers everywhere.

Few musicians convey the full range of these feelings with such understanding and tenderness as do Bert Kaempfert and Herbert Rehbein. And now the remarkable talents of this twosome have been brought together in one Decca album. Needless to say, the result is pure magic!

The close musical association existing between Bert Kaempfert and Herbert Rehbein through the years is one of the most heartwarming stories in the entertainment world. Here are two fine musicians, with distinct musical personalities of their own, yet they complement each other perfectly. The result, as to be expected, is music of consistently high quality, whether it be in composing, arranging, or performing.

European born and bred, Herbert Rehbein has had a long distinguished career in musical entertainment. In addition to appearing with his orchestra, he has served as musical director for Swiss Radio; he has arranged music for Bert Kaempfert for many years, and is co-composer with Kaempfert of ten of the eleven songs heard in this album. Music by Rehbein is always smooth, mellow, danceable, and presented with great style. Talent, taste and style, as a matter of fact, probably, best describe the outstanding qualities of this fine musician.

This choice of songs offered here is dedicated to that special them when day ebbs away to a quiet close, when reality tunes out...and dreams tune in. Some of the songs are familiar favorites, popular with many of today's top recording artists, while others are somewhat less familiar. Each, however, is a musical gem that sets a special mood, enhanced by Herbert Rehbein's faultless musicianship.

So may we recommend that you let the music work its spell on you...that you turn the lights low and shut out the world...that you slip into something soft and comfortable and let yourself think lovely thoughts.

...And so to bed.
