The easy listening world was particularly crowded in the late 1950s and early 1960s, with the likes of Mantovani and Percy Faith enjoying remarkable success. They were joined by a composer, orchestra leader, producer and songwriter from Germany, who in 1960 exploded onto the chart with a haunting composition. Not only did the song become a major pop hit, it also crossed over to the R&B listings, becoming a Top Five hit on both. Wonderland By Night enabled Bert Kaempfert to enjoy overnight success. The resulting album was equally well received and became another chart topper, spending five weeks at the summit. Bert’s brand of easy listening would enable him to become a major star in America, although he is perhaps best known for his role in getting The Beatles into a recording studio for the very first time.
