April 14th Peggy performs at the Der Grosse hr4 Fruhlingsball. Report by Richard Englehardt.
I was quite surprised, as I arrived at HR studio, that someone was selling tickets! (Richard was surprised because the show was sold out weeks in advance and he was on the wait list for an additional returned ticket.)
Studio 1 had been packed, nearly to its capacity of 568 people. People from all walks of life - gave the studio quite a bit of colour.
18.30h the germans started on time.... a bit of this - a bit of that and a great big band with approx. 20 members giving their best.
The guest-star Peggy has been introduced via two big video-screens, using material of Peggy’s 1 hour TV-show - in Berlin - I guess 1972 (1970).
3.1/2 hrs later, she made up for the waiting time, filled the studio with warmth, walking though the audience, giving us a medley of her German greatest hits. People were smiling, singing along and Peggy had time and space for a few stories like when mini-skirts were in - she referred to the following picture
Peggy sang I Will Follow Him and then she presented her new album for Germany, performing - Always and Forever. The audience went very quiet, as it was, more or less, - a capella - followed by full a capella - Mit 17 hat Man Noch Traume. By that time everybody had "goose-pimples" - in German you get a "perm".
What a great voice, heaven knows, were she gets the power from! All in all a great performance, topping it with a song from the musical “Elizabeth” - Ich Gehoere Nur Mir - I only belong to myself.
So I did meet “Lady Music”, addressing her as “Mrs. Harris” - 40 years later... a good soul - I would say, wishing and hoping, that we'll hear much more in the future ahead! I would particularly like to thank her husband Arnie, who didn't come along to Germany, as without his work, none of us would have been possible.
P.S. - i'm not a camera-man pictures below
