One of the most joyous sounds to permeate the radio airwaves
in the 70's and 80's came from central Europe courtesy of The Les Humphries Singers.
Les is an enigmatic fellow and very little is documented about the group
in the music history books. We do know and remember the wonderful music
that he has made however, with his inspirational, multi racial, choral
group for three decades. A musical style which became synonymous with
German culture of the 70's and early 80's.
Some of the songs they have recorded: Mexico, Adios Auf Wiedersehen, Mama Loo,
Dance Dance Dance, God Made America and Rock My Soul.
