James Last: Top Band Man ISN'T Saying 'Big Bands are Coming Back'

Peter Jones, Record Mirror, 6 May 1967

JAMES LAST sounds rather a British name. In fact, this talented musician, composer, arranger and orchestra-leader is German and it shows through in his struggles with the English language. His name appears in the LP charts through his album This Is James Last. His records are consistently plugged by dee-jays. He holds, at this moment, four of the top ten places in the German LP sphere. And Germany is a very important disc-selling country.
