Who the heck is this lady? We have no idea – but the set's got some very cool pop tunes with a mod 60s feel! The "bossa nova" in the title refers to Manuela's big hit "Schuld War Nur Dar Bossa Nova" – which is a German version of "Blame It On The Bossa Nova", the track that kicks off this 44 track 3CD set – but Manuela's got a lot more in her bag than just bossa nova, and manages to cover a wide range of 60s female pop styles that recall the work of some of our favorites, like Sandie Shaw, Petula Clark, France Gall
, and Dusty Springfield. Lyrics are all in German – and apart from the title track, tunes include "Monsieur Dupont", "Schneeman", "Schiwwen Lernt Man Im See", "Jive Manuela", "Ich Danke Dir", "Mama", "Hey Boy, Lass Doch Den Whisky", "Sonntag Im Zoo", "Hand Auf's Herz", "Lollipop", and "Kapitan".
