The Les Humphries Singers was a large group of session type singers that provided a grand vocal choir sound. The group sound was a mixture of pop, rhythm and blues, gospel, soul and early commercial Disco. The style had hints of psychedelic or hippy overtones with a James Last style of large and live vitality. This German produced, English singing pop group mixed in other cultural and ethnic influences that also echoed elements of world peace, love and harmony. This well presented box set is highly recommended.
Often music composers, singers, musicians and pop groups have their day of popularity and then they dissappear or are forgotten about. The Les Humphries Singers is perhaps such an example. This group dates from 1969 when the first version of the group was formed in Hamburg Germany by English Born Les Humphries. These are five of the most important or most successful Original Vinyl Studio Albums from the legendary "Les Humphries Singers" of the early seventies. Yes, here are these goodies inside you missed so much and haven't heard anymore for around forty years or since you sold your Original 8-Track-Tapes or LP's at the local flea market for a much less price than it was worth. Yes all sixty songs, the sound and feelings are back now on five Compact Discs and without any LP crackles anymore.
