In my New Romantic days in the early/mid 80's when I used to come home from the night club on the late night bus. My friends and I would hopefully get home in time to watch Prisoner Cell Block H. Before Cell Block H was always the James Last Orchestra show. I would often get home in enough time to see probably 30mins of the James Last show before Cell Block H started.
So it was sad news today to hear that the German easy listening bandleader had passed away today aged 86.
James plays three recent chart his in his 80s show - Hands up by Ottowan, Japanese Boy by Aneka, and Agado by Black Lace
