Im Back + Peggy March

Im home. London was great. France was great. I am too tired to give you a recap of my trip, and I like to keep it as private as possible.
I have some pictures from V&A's 60's fashion exhibition and videos and pictures from the Vanessa & The O's concert. In a few days.

Peggy March - Doktor
Born 8 March 1948 in Lansdale Pennsylvania (USA).
Having studied singing, acting, and dancing in the USA, Peggy's first record "I Will Follow Him" made No. 1 in the US Hit Parade. Her European debut was at the 1963 Radio Exhibition in Berlin. She appeared in Germany again in 1964, making 15 TV appearances. In 1965 she entered the German hit charts with "At Seventeen I Still Dream". After a golden record in 1968, she made 3 appearances in Japan. In 1969 she moved from New York to Munich with her husband and manager Arnie Harris. In 1970 she did a 45 minute television show in Germany. Her commercial success in Germany continued through much of the 1970s. In 1979 she experimented with disco on the album, Electrifying, but it failed to achieve commercial success. By 1981 record companies did not renew her contracts, and she moved back to the United States. A retro fad in Germany brought her some continuing success starting in the mid-1990s. Currently she works largely in the Las Vegas music scene.

Hi Sofie
I hope you had a great time in London and a good journey back.
Great Peggy March track and she did record some really nice songs (she was frequently on German tv in the 60s and 70s)
