From With A Sound In My Heart:
Listening is making a comeback. More and more people — riddled silly by television's six-shooters and Tommy guns, emotionally wrung out by the movies' psuedo-psychological plots — are rediscovering the relaxing, enormously rewarding pleasures of an almost-lost art, listening.
Here, played by the incomparable Bert Kaempfert and his orchestra, is an album designed for an predicated on the enjoyment of easy, let's-get-away-from-it-all listening.
Here are songs sweet and sentinmental, performed with the warm, full orchestral sound that has become Mr. Kaempfert's internationally recognized and renouned trademark.
Here is music for just listening... we think you'll find it's a delightfully "new" experience"
