"I want to make music for everyone. It must be enjoyed by all. Otherwise it is pointless."
This is the new site for the Bert Kaempfert page. This site began in July 2009 as a sub-domain of The Ray Conniff page and showed an incomplete listing of Bert Kaempfert CDs. On April 17, 2013 I scrapped the old pages and began work on this new site which will show a complete discography of all of Kaempfert's original albums and compilation CDs plus new recordings by The Bert Kaempfert Orchestra and tribute albums by other artists.
I'm slowly adding content (CDs, photos, liner notes), just a few pages each week (see the recent updates page). Many thanks to Hans-Jürgen van der Heide who recently sent me a folder full of CD and Lp cover scans which will save me a lot of time and help motivate me to keep moving forward with this project.
You can now sign into the site using Facebook. You can then add comments to albums. Soon I'll add star ratings (similar to Amazon) and probably a threaded discussion group.
Update: Facebook authentication allowed too many spam registrations. I'm looking to add a CAPTCHA dialog when registering via Facebook. For now, I've disabled Facebook.
