Dreaming of distant lands? Pining for parts unknown? Close your eyes and your dreams come true in this new, exciting album by Bert Kampfert and his orchestra.

Kaempfert, man of many talents - conductor, composer, arranger, musician extraordinary - has done it again. This time he takes us, around the world on a magic carpet of music... that special music that is the Kaempfert trademark - rich, full of orchestral sound, exquisite strings, and a brilliant, melodic trumpet. This is music with an international flavor. Music for dancing, dreaming, humming along with or just plain listening. This is your passport to pleasure.

Where does your fancy take you? Italy? You can almost touch the stars as you stroll down the quaint cobblestone streets in the mellow light of the Moon Over Naples. Longing for intrigue, adventure, romance? Come with us down the Malay Peninsula to the exotic fabled port of the East. What magic awaits there On A Little Street of Singapore!

Time for terpischore - South American style. The incomparable tempo of the tango fills the Argentine night as the orchestra plays La Cumparsita. Off to beautiful Brazil... Rio at carnival time, the shimmering sands of the Copacabana Beach, and the shoulder-shaking rhythms of Mambossa.

As delicate as a shower of lower petals in a Japanese garden... a dainty, kimono-clad maiden with her parasol... the graceful, tinkling notes of the Japanese Farewell Song are the very essence of the Orient.

Jet to where the pleasure-seekers are. Sun-filled days on the Riviera. Fun-filled nights in a glittering casino. The magic name of Monte Carlo. No room here for worry or care. Live it up in Monaco!

Music on the move.. the mounting tempo of an Israeli folk dance... the joyous exuberance of a young, vibrant country. This is finger-snapping, toe-tapping music. Join the hora, as the trumpet plays Hava Nagila and let yourself go!

For all lovers, for all time, but especially for Americans. How many generations now have danced and dreamed to the sweet strains of Star Dust? How many prom nights, parties, and first dates does this American classic recall? Still the most danceable music around and America's all-time sentimental favorite.

The Eiffel Tower, Montmartre, the Seine on a gray afternoon... Les Feuilles Mortes (Autumn Leaves) drift down with that bitter-sweet sadness that is especially France. Unrequited love, a broken heart... the theme song of the sad eyed chanteuse in the little Parisian boite. A song for lovers everywhere.

The rugged, rocky coast of Yugoslavia, the grace of a dark-eyed dancer, the flutter of ribbons on a tambourine, and the ageless, gypsy rhythm of haunting Balkan Melody.

Midnight in Moscow. The strains of the balalaika, a meeting in some dark cafe. Memories perhaps of long ago... a dashing uniform, furs against the snow. Music in the Russian mood.

Lilting, gay, fresh as a pitcher of cream, light-hearted as a yodeler on an Alpine peak. The music of Swiss Missy swings you along on a cable-car high above the snow to a happy holiday in Switzerland.

And so you have it. A musical voyage you will long remember. Souvenirs in song from the four corners of the earth. And you've never even left home. This is your special gift of magic from a master musician - Bert Kaempfert.
