NORMA BOOSEY PASSED AWAY

Via a message from Simon Bell this evening, we heard that Norma Ashton, the widow of Peter Boosey, passed away yesterday after a short illness. The news came unexpectedly and shocked us. Our condoleances go to the friends of the James Last Appreciation Society, and to the family of Norma, which we also wish a lot of strength. RIP Norma.

Jean Van Mulken died

The news is not yet officially confirmed to us, but we heard from various sources and with regret that our good friend Jean Van Mulken passed away. Jean was already a member of our club in the early years, he was a die-hard Lastfan. In recent years he almost wore t-shirts of James Last wherever he went. Last year I drove together with him to the party of the German Last Fans in Eschweiler. There he was allowed to play with the guest band, "Die Kaafsäck" (photo). Jean was in fact an avid drummer. We will miss him! RIP dear Jean - Jan Demin

Peter Boosey passed away

It's with great sadness that we must report the death of Peter Boosey, who led the Worldwide James Last Appreciation Society with great success since 1974.
On April 18th 1989, during a fanparty in Bremen to celebrate Hansi's 60th birthday, the JLAS fraternized with our James Last Benelux Club. Since that day our fanclubs were close, and we worked together on several occasions.
There are so many beautiful memories attached to Peter, too many to mention here.
With Peter the world of James Last loses once again someone so important. We will miss our sympathetic friend, always friendly, very witty, funny, and often ready for an honest opinion.
Our thoughts now go to his wife Norma, children and grandchildren. We wish them much strength.
R.I.P. dear Peter.

fotoBENNY BENDORFF PASSED AWAY

Today via Simon Bell we heard the sad news that once again a good friend from the James Last Orchestra is deceased, namely bass player Benny Bendorff.
He was born in Hamburg in August 1946 as Joachim Leis-Bendorff. Like his ancestors he was called to tradition "Benny".
In 1969 he was asked by Hansi for his special rock album "Hair", because Benny was good in improvising. A little later he was asked for the first Canada Tour in 1969 ... and so he continued as a fixed value in the orchestra until 2002.
In this way Benny remains as one of the great figureheads of the James Last Band. When we spoke to him in July in Hamburg, he said he already recovered three years from throat cancer.
RIP dear Benny

fotoNew compilation (14/4/2016): Ich find' Schlager toll

Compilation: JLBC

Op 15 april 2016 verschijnt een nieuwe compilatie-cd van James Last binnen de low-budgetreeks 'Ich Find' Schlager Toll'. Voor de samenstelling kwam Universal Music in Berlijn opnieuw aankloppen bij de James Last Benelux Club. In de plaats van ons idee met een mix van instrumentale Schlagers en Sing Mit, gaven zij de voorkeur aan een mix van Sing Mit en Non Stop Dancing.
Het is misschien niet meteen een album waar wij, fans in de Nederlanden op zitten te wachten. Maar het sfeertje is leuk en natuurlijk typisch James Last. Op twee medleys uit Superlast na, is trouwens alles nieuw op cd! Momenteel is het enkel nog wachten op de lay-out én op de 15 april.

Officially confirmed

JAMES LAST BIDS THE STAGE ADIEU: "NON STOP MUSIC JAMES LAST IN CONCERT 2015" TO BE HIS FAREWELL TOUR

05.02.2015
James Last will set off on his final tour on 22 March 2015. After giving it much thought, this popular, world-famous conductor decided that "Non Stop Music" would definitely be his final tour. His serious illness, which took a lifethreatening turn last September, forced him to face the fact he, too, a man full of plans, needs to not just slow down but give up his life on tour altogether.
It is a decision that Last, 85, regrets very much. Nevertheless this tour, which has been a long time in the making and also marks his 90th concert in the Royal Albert Hall, will give him a welcome opportunity to bid farewell to his fans.
Then, on 26 April 2015 in Cologne's LANXESS arena, the last stop on the "Non Stop Music" tour will bring an end to his enormously successful, unique, nearly
50-year career on tour.
Thus will end an era of German music history, the story of a man whose ingenious idea – that of taking music from every genre, lending it his own personal touch and creating an entirely new sound – touched and delighted millions of music lovers all around the world. A man who turned his concerts into events that continuously attracted an audience spanning multiple generations.
James Last: "The concert itself won't be centred around my farewell. The only important thing will be that my fans, my friends and I all have a good time and can enjoy a fantastic concert."

This is a very sad day for the world of James Last.
We shared so many beautiful moments with Derek when he played for us at concerts.
He surely will live on through the many brilliant trumpet solo's on our James Last albums.
Our thoughts go now to his wife Wendy, his children and grandchildren.
Dear Derek with your famous smile, we will miss you!

A few members informed us about a (corrupt) website that is offering tickets for 2012/2013.
Our inquiry with the James Last management and Semmel Concerts brought the follwing answer :
"Das ist schlichtweg falsch: diese Tournee gibt es nicht. "

Message from Wendy, the wife of Derek Watkins:

" Hello Friends

I am selling two Irish Crystal glasses from 1984 when Hansi went to Ireland. The musicians were given these crystal wine glasses as a momento, and I am now selling them with all the money going to Save the Children Charity. Perhaps some of your members might be interested?

Here is the link:
2 x Irish crystal wine glasses - James Last souvenirs

The price is set at Sterling-£120 for both the glasses together. I did not want to auction them as I might not achieve a good price as they are such a specialist item.
Thank you for your help

Best wishes

Wendy "

The promised 'bonus' wan't be on the DVD.

Message from the editor: "Inhalt der DVD ist die Dokumentation "My Way", die erst vor kurzem, am 20.2.2011, auf 3sat gezeigt wurde.
Darüber hinaus ist als Bonus ein aktuelles Interview mit James Last auf DVD. Die Doku oder vielmehr das Interview "James Last at Last" mussten wir kurzfristig wegen rechtlicher Bedenken von der DVD nehmen."

(On the DVD is the documentary "My Way", recently, on 20/02/2011, broadcasted by 3sat.
Besides a more recent interview "James Last at Last" is added on the DVD. The prosised documentary, or rather the interview "James Last at Last" had to be removed because of legal causes.)

fotoIn memoriam Barry Reeves.

Madeline Bell's beloved husband Barry Reeves passed away this morning (February 6, 2010), following a brave fight against pneumonia.
Barry had spent over a year in hospitals with injuries sustained in a fall in January 2009.
Barry was a drummer with The Checkmates, Ferris Wheel, and Blossom Toes in the 1960s, but is more noted for his work with The James Last Orchestra, where he was both drummer & percussionist, and indeed with Madeline.
In addition to his playing Barry also co-wrote many songs with James Last.

James Last In Los Angeles -- The Legendary 1975 Record Plant Studio Sessions (aka Well Kept Secret)
James Last
Around March 28, 2008

CD (Item 472528) 1975 -- Condition: New Copy
James Last gets a bit hip and funky for the 70s -- working here with Wes Farrell production and arrangements, in a weird electric groove that's got some nice soundtracky touches! The overall style's very different than Last's usual brassy and bouncey records -- almost laidback at times, with some great keyboards that really changes the mood of the set. The album was recorded in LA, and has a nice slich smooth studio feel that's really great. Includes the great mellow groover "I Can't Move No Mountains", plus "Love For Sale", "Question", "Theme From Prisoner Of Second Avenue", "Jubilation", and "Summertime".

LP (!): In Los Angeles-the Legendary 1975 Record Plant Studio Sessions [Vinyl LP]
