Some trivia about Lawrence Welk - Calcutta - 1960
"Calcutta" was written in 1960 by Heino Gaze (music) and Hans Bradtke (lyrics). An instrumental recording of the tune by Lawrence Welk on the 1961 Dot Records album Calcutta! was a chart hit, possibly the largest hit of Welk's career.

The song, which in fact does have lyrics, was something of a departure for Welk with its combination of his recognizable "trademarks," i.e., the harpsichord lead, but backed with handclaps and a brisk rock rhythm.

"Calcutta" would stay atop the pop charts for two weeks while the album, with its combination of easy listening tunes and covers of then-popular rock singles, charted at number one for three months. At the time that "Calcutta" reached number one, Welk, who was then 57, became the oldest artist to have a number one pop single in the U.S. (His record would be broken three years later by Louis Armstrong who, at 62, topped the singles charts with "Hello, Dolly!" in early 1964.)

Dancers Bobby Burgess and Barbara Boylan, cast members on Welk's weekly TV show, worked up a dance routine to go along with "Calcutta", which they would perform to the song numerous times on the Welk show. [1]
