the ultimate in romantic singers, enge never rocked a meaure in his life. but man, could he sing. my sainted mother fell for him with the release of RELEASE ME (which dethroned the Beatles from the #1 spot on the charts, though she cared little of that). truth is, she was trapped in a loveless marriage, and needed a romantic, masculine ideal to fix her gaze upon. Enge fit the bill. It took a couple of years (his albums were scattered all over the house), but she was eventually able to leave the sick, dysfunctional marriage it had become, due largely to Enge's images on the album covers, and of course his silken voice. She met a British expatriate, who was to lure her away from the skinny walking man she had had to call her husband, for eighteen years. Peter was the name of the new man, and he had a drinking problem, and a smoking problem (Pall Malls), but he wasn't antisocial. That, i believe, was the important thing, because he had no interest in communing by himself with the classical composers of yesteryear, off by himself in a corner, with his headphones on. My mother was no introvert: quite the opposite; she could talk your ears off, if you'd let her. Hard to understand, this, but if you Google the lyrics of RELEASE ME, it might clarify her situation, her desperation. She was tough, me mum, and she hung on to life long after Peter and she had split apart. It took Mad Cow's disease, to cease her, and i'll forever be grateful to my little brother who nursed her through the final stages of her fight against the process of death. She was a wonderful soul, and i miss her terribly. Engelbert was a sum cumme laude singer, and i am grateful to him for his unwitting help to my mother. xxxx p.s. my sister, celia, and me mum and myself went to an Enge concert at the Circle Star Theatre, San Carlos, California. we waited for him in back of the venue, for him to enter his limo. man, was he toasted! he walked like a zombie, his eyes were glazed, my mother shouted, ' all the way from Leceister to see you!' --which I am sure he did not hear. he inspired devotion from the feminine gender. but to him it was an experience from which he had to anesthetise himself.
