Danish Delights (7)

Jørgen Ingmann - Apache

Someone requested this a long time ago, so here it is!

Jørgen Ingmann, originally a jazz guitarist from Denmark, also produced a cover version of Apache that, billed to Jørgen Ingmann & His Guitar, made it to number 2 on the US pop chart and 4 in Canada in 1961, thereby preventing the Shadows' original from charting there.
A real classic.

To complete the info, this Jorgen Ingmann won 3 years later with "Dansevise" the eurovision song contest for Denemark with his sister Grethe.
And the original of Apache is from Bert Weedon.
Keep it up! We love you.
