A Forgotten Treasure: The James Last Band
Not exactly something you would expect from a German big band leader, but then James Last was no ordinary musician. He had a wide ranging repertoire and many hits around the world, but his biggest success in America came in the form of movie soundtrack music collaborations with Giorgio Moroder. One song in particular, The Seduction (Love Theme) was on the soundtrack of both The Seduction and American Gigolo. It was his only true hit in the United States reaching 18 on the adult contemporary charts. German band leader James Last with a definite SoCal vibe.....enjoy!
