    James Last Musician and band leader has died age 86
    It said at one time he was producing albums a month, I know my father has at least one of his. I also worked with someone that said he surrounded himself with talented people and said one of the singers that worked with him was Sunny who sang with the original Brotherhood of Man, and as a solo artist had a hit in the 70's Doctors Order.

    R.I.P. Mr Last

    I seem to recall this one very well and typical of his orchestrations.

    Its not mine either but one I don't mind in the least and have to say I like this one Gheorghe Zamphia recorded with James Last that was used in Kill Bill. Also prefer it to 99% of the stuff that's coming out today.
