      I think, it's fine when I decide to introduce one more of my teeny heart-throb. So here she is:

        Manuela:

        'Boing Boing die Liebe' (Boing Boing Love) 7-inch single (DE Hansa - 13 395, 1974)

      I'm familiar with her since 1963 when she had her first and biggest German hit with a cover version of Eydie Gormé's 'Blame It on the Bossa Nova'.

      She was that "next door girl" - somehow I was smitten by her natural charm. I have a whole bunch of her singles, but this cover photography transports my love for her best. Despite the inanely song title and the ridiculous advert from a German yellow press newspaper (write a song for your star), is this photography one of my favorites.

      Shady! I'm pleased to hear that you like her. Isn't it nice to see, that one can keep feelings for such a long time.

Yes, B, she is definitely easy on the eyes. I assume this is the same Manuela backed by Der 5 Bops on "Kussen Unter Regenbogen" on Decca - I found this single at a flea market years ago and was impressed by the Phil Spector-like production on it. At the same dealer I found Peggy March's "Doktor" which is a pretty funky tune from the former "I've Told Every Little Star" star.

Question Wasn't that Linda Scott? Peggy March's big hit in the USA was "I Will Follow Him". Peggy March was much more popular in Germany than in the USA.

You caught me - I got my pop stars & their hits mixed up - I meant "I Will Follow Him", not "I've Told Every Little Star". Thanks for the correction.
