Scholl typifies the strengths and weaknesses of contemporary Alpine music. The title song and a couple of others might have been commissioned by the local tourist board. Several tourist boards, in fact: we have here "Up with Bavaria," "Let's Hear It for Switzerland" and "Tyrol Forever" in successive songs. Bavaria comes out top in times mentioned, for what it's worth. The rest aren't particularly inspired melodically. On the other hand, the man's a yodeller, and a very good one -- especially in the benchmark slow numbers.
