Tuchel & Stantin - T&S

 
Style: Adult Orientated Kraut

Format: LP
Label: Nature (!)

Year: 1977

Condition: NM/NM

 

You can easily see that these dude are absolutely trustworthy. And their fluffy & funky AOK absolutely rules. Quite a bunch of "hits" on this album. Charting #1 is the uptempo pearl Manchde Mädchen sind wie Herbst followed by the mellow groover Lass Mich Frei, the funky jam An meine christlichen Freunde. Cherry on top: the pseudo reggae "killer" Das kann nicht Freiheit sein. SERIOUSLY!

Toni Visconti - Visconti's Inventory

 
Style:  Funky AOR

Format: LP
Label: Phonogram (UK)

Year: 1977

Condition: NM/VG+

 

You may stop asking yourself what Tony Visconti did when he was not producing records for people like T-Rex, David Bowie, Osibisa, Marsha Hunt, Gentle Giant, Sparks or Haysi Fantayzee. The answer is funky music and karate (see cover). I don't care much about the Karate, but the funky music sho nuff turns me on!

Style: his own kind of AOChanson

Format: LP
Label: Barclay

Year: 1975

Condition: NM/VG 

 

The sought after only solo album by the Martin Circus member is a süperunique mix of chanson and various worldly influences. I find it quite difficult to describe the music, except from calling the arrangements brilliant. "Irresistible Pop Not Pop by a Progrocker" might be too obvious? Maybe you just listen and hear what I mean?

More from Mr Torrance. Bareback is my fave among his LPs, because of Rio De Janeiro Blue. But the wah wah jam Circle Of Confusion is amazing as well. And so are the catchy Leave my Love Behind and the mellow groover Under Your Spell.
