Hello Out There

- Falling in Love Again
Collaborating with German composer/arranger/conductor Hermann Weindorf, Engelbert co-wrote 7 songs for this album, all of them melodic and wonderful, my favorite of them is the title track, and another, "Reach Out", was "Dedicated to all the beautiful children who innocently suffer with the HIV virus".
Also included are 3 early hits for Eng, "Release Me", "After the Lovin'" and "The Last Waltz", and these new recordings have their own unique flavor to them, and are fabulous.
A big favorite of mine on this CD is "Only Love", and another song of note is "We Fell in Love", which Englebert sings with his daughter Louise Dorsey, and was for a dramatization called "The Windsors", about the Duke and Dutchess.
A song I have never cared for...in fact have loathed, is the big hit for Bryan Adams "(Everything I do) I do it for You)", and here I find it enjoyable, proving that Engelbert's voice and artistry are a force for great change.
With the voice track recorded in Los Angeles, while Weindorf conducted the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of London, and the tracks were mixed in Munich, this is an international effort, and somehow has a very European feel to it.
Though this isn't one of my Engelbert desert isle CDs, it's a beautiful, masterful recording, with exquisite vocals and lush, lovely orchestrations.
The foldout insert has a song listing, and total playing time is 67'45.
Every song on this Cd is excellent, many written by Enge himself. "We fell in Love" is just one of the many super songs on this album, not just that one. They are all great! I am a fan forever, and a real Engelbert fan says all the songs on this cd are superb as well as the matching concert video.
