‘Eine Schwarzwaldfahrt’

As it sometimes is, easy listening music is on my mind, and today, it’s specifically easy listening music from 1965, the kind of stuff we would have heard coming faintly from the overhead speakers in nice restaurants.

There’s a reason for those thoughts, but the tale of the end of a Minnesota institution that sparked them will have to wait until tomorrow. Even so, I didn’t want to leave this little corner of the ’Net blank today. So, here is a 1965 piece by Horst Jankowski that was No. 1 for two weeks on the Billboard Easy Listening chart: “A Walk In The Black Forest” or as it’s called in Jankowski’s hometown of Berlin, “Eine Schwarzwaldfahrt.”
