    Charity Shop special, couple of quid for some great music.
    Just cleaned this LP as a first test on the Moth RCM, dead quiet and sounding clear as a bell.
    Great recording actually, who knew?

    Thanks Grant.

    Well as most people know I will give anything a go once, and so to this another freebie form the attic. It is strangely beguiling and for some odd reason has my toe tapping along.

    Well I decided to look up Mr. Last on Wiki to see what is says "Last is reported to have sold an estimated 200 million albums worldwide in his lifetime (figures vary widely, for example British Hit Singles & Albums (2006) reports 100 million at that time), of which 80 million were sold by 1973 - and won numerous awards including 200 gold and 14 platinum discs in Germany, the International MIDEM Prize at MIDEM in 1969. His album This Is James Last remained a UK best-seller for 48 weeks, and his song "Games That Lovers Play" has been covered over a hundred times. Last undertook his final tour months before his death at age 86, upon discovering in September 2014 that an illness (the exact illness was never disclosed had worsened. His final UK performance was his 90th at London's Royal Albert Hall, more than any other performer except Eric Clapton." "Asked if he minded being labelled the "King of Corn", Last reportedly replied "No, because it is true.""

    Obviously a very successful career that captured peoples ears for many years.
