An album well worth mentioning, unique as a commercially issued love song compilation sung by one artist in five different languages - English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. Elke Sommer (born Elke Baronesse von Schletz in Germany 1940) has been one of the busiest female figures in entertainment from the late fifties up to this millenium - as serious actress in hundreds of movies and TV-series, painter, sex symbol, many times Playboy centerfold, comedienne and singer. Carreer and background way too much to get into here, just check the rear sleeve notes below. This seems to have been her only sixties album and first of just three original ones in total. She clearly had both brains and looks and judging from this LP also a very nice voice - never fawning, but sexy in a smart and secure mode. Album consists of soft schlagers produced as lounge music, well arranged and good to the ears. You don't have to be a polyglot to enjoy. It will work well also for wordless love meetings and late night monolingual listening alone. Released this way in US and Canada, also as stereo (SE-4321). Geman 1965 issue "Ich Liebe Dich" (Polydor SLPHM 237454) had seven tracks in common. To my knowledge never released on CD. Early US had label as shown here and glossy cover with MGM logo inner.
