Was that the concert where he played his Guitar Concerto with Christopher Parkening? I remember sitting there, listening to it (Guitar Concerto) for the first time and thinking 'I can't wait to buy this to hear it again'. I think I saw Elmer Bernstein in concert 3 times in total. This was the last time (obviously).
"What an incredible happy surprise, Lukas, A Thousand Thanks!!! (I never even knew Ralph Edwards' classic show had ever been transplanted to England, let alone that they'd honored Elmer.)"
"The format was sold around the world, but we Brits did it best, I think. At the height of the show's success, getting the accolade of 'the big red book' was regarded as a sign you'd made it in showbusiness."
Not to be confused with The Big Red Chair, which is a sign that your story better not be boring if you know what's good for you.
