"36 All-Time Favorites"
His real name was Arnold George Dorsey, but we all remember him as his stage name
was borrowed from a German opera composer: Engelbert Humperdinck. He would popular
singer in the late 1960s/early 1970s, and, like Tom Jones, they would become sex-appeal
sensations to the older ladies, with their incredible good looks, and their voices singing
songs of love and devotion. Engelbert Humperdinck would achieve hits such as "Release
Me" and "After The Lovin' during a time of popular music where psyschedelic rock
was the dominant force. After the breakup of The Beatles though, the early 1970s was focused
on not only Rock music, but other sources, such as Country, and even the Pop crooners of
the likes of Tom Jones, Humperdinck, and even Frank Sinatra. Yet it was a rivalry between
Jones and Humperdinck -- both were young, good looking, and driving all the older women
crazy, even enough to throw their underwear on stage while performing (in Tom Jones case).
GSC/Polygram released a fantasic assortment of Humperdincks's music, 36 All-Time
Favorites. There are many songs that many will remember during Humperdinck's prime.
The standouts are obvious: "Release Me," "Quando Quando Quando (Tell Me When)," "A Man
Without Love," "Winter World Of Love," "After The Lovin'" to name a few.
His voice fits well on virtually every track. There are songs that were more
popular by original artists, such as Frankie Valli's "Can't Take My Eyes Off You,"
Al Martino's "Spanish Eyes," The Fifth Dimension's "Up Up And Away,"
Bryan Adams' "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You", and the Herman's Hermits'
"There's A Kind Of Hush."
Now, for anyone who may know the answer to this particular knowledge: There was
a song, called "My Wife The Dancer," which Humperdinck recorded on a live album,
yet it was best remembered by the duo Eddie & Dutch. The research shows only of the
live recording by Humperdinck, yet there is really no history of Eddie & Dutch. Is
there anyone who knows more about this duo, who they were, and any other recorded
history by them.
No doubt, 36 All-Time Favorites by Engelbert Humperdinck is a great collection
of love filled songs that will easily fit the mood for the romatnic setting, capturing
the romance in all of us. Engelbert still performs, at least 200 shows a year.
His most recent album was released in 2007, The Winding Road, a tribute to
