Joan took the German CD IRGENDWANN to a children’s class, thinking that the waltz and the foxtrot would be suitable for teaching beginners. Later the director phoned, wanting the name of the waltz, which she loved.The waltz bore the same title “Irgendwann” as the CD and was sung in German by Anke Brochhausen. So back the CD goes to next week’s dance class, which also used “All I Ask of You” instrumental as a foxtrot. The CD is played by the Karl Schmidt orchestra, which has also recorded MOONLIGHT DANCING. Here are the tracks on IRGENDWANN:
