OOP / NO CD.....GUNTHER DOUBLE HEADER !
Over to former GDR for 2 Lp's from Gunther Fischer.
These are not my rips but I only see them accessible on a
Russian Music forum at the moment....plus they're uploaded
Russia's 'i folder' which has about 4 steps before you access
the folder...which if you don't read the language is lots of
copying and pasting in translate......so I've made it easier!
First up...Gunther Fischer Quintett - Kombination 1978
I think this was first posted back in 2008 on the great Blog
'Djalma's Soul Food' but the link has well expired...
Djalmas description sums it up nicely:
'German Democratic Republic sure had some Holy Grails and this one could
be one of them! And the beat heads will surely find some useful samples
on it, like that drum break at the beginning of the "Kombination"! I
couldn't find any info on the net so I'll just let the music speak for itself... Peace... '
Next up is the Sound Track to 'Solo Sunny' 1979(!?)
Solo Sunny, released in 1980 is an East German drama Film Directed by Konrad Wolf and Wolfgang Kohlhaase.
Sunny is the singer of band trying to establish itself in the
music-scene of East-Berlin. They play regular gigs in small towns, but
Sunny feels out of touch with the audience and her life as a whole. She
begins a relationship with the amateur saxophonist and studied
philosopher Ralph who writes her a very personal song - but his
obsession with death and unfaithful lifestyle is not for her.
A Mixed bag of Jazz-Funk, Jazz-Rock,Smooth Jazz...Vocal etc...but there's some decent tracks amongst
them...plus a few with some nice wordless female vocals (Yes I'm a Sucker for Them!)
Genießen ! !
Comments etc.... Please !
