Engelbert Humperdinck’s duets album Engelbert Calling has been scheduled for a March 17 release in the UK and the track listing can now be revealed.

The legendary Humperdinck has been working with some of the biggest names on the planet. Elton John, Gene Simmons of Kiss, Smokey Robinson, Willie Nelson, Kenny Rogers and Olivia Newton-John are just some of the superstars that will appear with Engelbert on ‘Engelbert Calling’.

Scott Dorsey, Engelbert’s son and manager, drove the Engelbert Calling project. After contacting some of the biggest names on the planet, Scott was so overwhelmed by the reaction from the stars that the album became a double album.

Engelbert’s son and daughter Bradley and Louise Dorsey will also appear on the record singing with their dad. Louise performs Better while Bradley sings Cat Stevens’ Father and Son with his dad.

I just heard the tracks in this wonderful Duet CD "Engelbert Calling" with all of the major Legends singing with him and it is phenomenal. I had to skype a UK friend (released there yesterday) so we could sit and listen to it together. I cannot wait until it hits the states, but made sure to order a copy or two from Amazon.co.uk. It is phenomenal.
