Engelbert Humperdinck Bound for Atlantic City, New Brunswick

October 27, 2014

If you've got something that works, stick with it.

That's what Engelbert Humperdinck is doing, and has for nearly a half-century.

At 78, the India-born British singer behind such hits as "Release Me" and "There Goes My Everything" shows no signs of slowing. Humperdinck has two upcoming shows in New Jersey and a new album of duets, "Engelbert Calling," in which he harmonizes with an eclectic group of artists from Elton John to Willie Nelson to Olivia Newton-John to Gene Simmons.

Humperdinck — who was born Arnold Dorsey — spoke in a recent telephone interview.

 

Q. You could sit home, but you're on the road. Is touring a grind these days?

A. Actually, I just finished a seven-day tour, and it was quite grueling, in fact -- a different city every night, on the bus, etc. But it's fine. It's a part of my life. It's been a part of how I live for a very long time now. I enjoy it very much.

Q. There's quite an array of performers on "Engelbert Calling." Does the title indicate that you called everyone personally?

A. I mostly did it myself. The title "Englebert Calling" came about because one night, I was listening to a live album by Elton John. As he was introducing a song, he said, "I wrote this when I was a struggling artist waiting for an Engelbert to call and ask for a song." Well, I didn't ask for that song, but I did call him (laughs). Elton was the first call I made, in fact, and he said yes, of course. Having Elton was like having a honeycomb -- he attracted everyone else to come and contribute.

Q. Gene Simmons of Kiss is on your record. Did you work with him in the studio?

A. In the studio. Gene Simmons was absolutely amazing. Because, we are on two totally different sides of the ocean, as far as our business goes. He's a rocker, and I'm in the romantic area. But he was such fun. He's a rock god, but he has a great sense of humor, which he brought into the studio. He kept saying, "Eng, just have fun. Have fun with it."

Q. What do you remember about growing up in India?

A. You know, living in a tropical country when you're that young — there was a lot of sunshine and a lot of attention — my father was in the army — so I was really spoiled in a lot of ways. But I did enjoy my time over there.

Q. You moved to England at age 10. Was that culture shock?

A. It was a great change, but it was absolutely wonderful. We had never seen snow before. Cold was something we had never experienced before. But I got to love it. That's where I call home now. I still have a home in Leicestershire, in England. That's where I will go to celebrate Christmas and New Year's.

Q. You've been talking about this for 40-some years, but please indulge me. In the 1960s when you emerged, comedians made hay with your stage name. Given that the name is so unusual, did it give you pause?

A. It gave me recognition. But I had my reservations, I'll tell you. I was worried about the length of the name. I thought, "My gosh, how am I going to sign this name? It's so long, it sounds like the name of a group!" But it's served its purpose. The original person who owned the name (a composer) died in (1921). I'm the only Engelbert Humperdinck around today. I was fortunate enough to sell 150 million records under that name.

Q. There was always an imagined rivalry between you and Tom Jones. But you were on his TV show, and he was on yours. Are you friends?

A. To be honest, we were friends in the early days, when (talent agent) Gordon Mills was managing us both at the same time. Then when I went out on my own — because I felt Mills was being partial to one person — from then on, we have never spoken to each other. That's been 28 years.

Q. You're still known as a romantic figure. Do you still see a twinkle in the eyes of ladies in the audience?

A. Certainly (laughs). I'm sort of a generator. When I'm onstage, and I generate this feeling, this electricity that I have with the audience. It's still exciting for me. It has been for 47 years.
