The Kansas City Chorus



Another bit of nostalgia connected to Kansas City . . .

From the world's most accurate encyclopedia: "The Les Humphries Singers were a 1970s musical group formed in Hamburg, Germany in 1969 by the English born Les Humphries. The group consisted of a large number of singers of diverse ethnic origin. The Les Humphries Singers performed a mix of popular music and gospel covers and had some success in Europe with this approach. Their music focused on rhythm and blues, gospel, and disco, but often with psychedelic phasing or flanger effects on solos and bridges, and, much larger background choruses in the studio to emulate a live atmosphere. The Les Humphries Singers at the time brought something from the flair of the hippie movement into contemporary German-produced (but English-sung) pop music, especially due to their mixed ethnic background and peculiar fashion sense."

While not one of their hits, their song "Kansas City" often comes up in local online searches . . .
