For anyone who would dismiss the legendary German artist James Last exclusively under the easy listening/schlager/cheese banner, here are three reasons why you are wrong:
1) Voodoo Party LP 1971 - an entire album of raw tribal early funk and groove from start to finish that before the net was a sign the DJ knew their stuff if you saw it in a collection.
2) Non Stop Dancing 1973 and specifically the legnedary opening 'Potpourri' Medley of Hawkwind's Silver Machine, T. Rex's Children of the Revolution and Alice Cooper's School's Out - for added razzle dazzle, you can watch the James Last Orchestra performing this Medley on YouTube.
3) Well Kept Secret LP 1975 - Mr Last collaborates with some of Los Angeles finest soul/funk artists and session musicians and creates a work of wonder and what many, including myself, think is his best track of all: 'I Can't Move No Mountains'.
Once you've experienced these three lessons in sound you can confidently destroy anyone who dismisses the late Hans Last as an easy listening lightweight.
