– Smile, 1979 from the album

BK

inherently we are friendly persons. These times are straining. Being critical doesn’t mean being negativ. The original liner notes from this album are!

Actually it was my wife’s idea to give the new LP the title Smile. Go on, laugh a bit from time to time, she said, because I was always looking so cross

Why this album. A so-called Disco Diggler told us, there would be surprising disco tunes on this not so well known Kaempfert vinyl. Mmmh? make your own impression

– Keep On Dancing

for quality listening we prefer ambiente elegante

Do You Realize ?

– Do You Realize, 1978 from the album

AD

or rather, did you realize we had a little writing break on our visual business card. We already wrote about our critical view on this years dynamics on vinyl prices/ new releases. We notice a comprehensible reluctance on our customers, to pay more than 12€ for a 7Inch, more than 15€ for a 12Inch and 26 to 30€ ( and more ) for a longplay. At once power online sellers with cut prices  for new stuff- that makes simply – for us –  no sense. Verifiable our buying prices are the selling prices in Great Britain and the US. That makes no sense, too.

break – still one of our fav. music documentary

Second problem is the most horrible pressing quality, specially on reissues. Bad copies made from mp3’s. – spooky. Today we read that Ed Motta recommend the reissue from the James Walsh Gypsy Band.

we researched and found this product info –

This is the first vinyl release ever, originally only released as a CD-R by the band, licensed official release limited to 500 copies, on a new 180G vinyl with high quality (sic!) cover.

So? Originally released 1979. Released on a CD-R ? when? in the video James is written Jemes. Master tapes or from mp3? doesn’t matter. Everything is possible. It has to be limited and soon expensive on discogs – stormy days for classic sellers

– Stormy, 1970 from the album

SW

by the way – whenever you have the chance to see these three friendly persons live !!

KH

their debut album History Of Flight is  gorgeous !

in summary – we love our job and our way will ever be

The Right Thing To Do

Posted in Musik Department Berlin, Musik für alle with tags , , , , , on 15. April 2016 by Musik Department

– The right thing to do,  1973 from the album

RC

RSD 2016, everything is prepared. We have, better say got, 50 different articles. The right thing to do ? visit a vinyl store near by. Have a talk, have a look and maybe you go home with a smile. Mystery to me ?

– Mystery to me, 1978 from the album

WB

mystery to me, not really, the spread between the distributions and their delivery quote. Sadly we got no Fela Kuti 10Inch, by an order of laughable three. Our quote all together flabby 40%. 2nd mystery, not really, meanwhile on the day before! impertinent pre-order offers on ebay.com, with double price as necessary ( like that asshole from Columbus, Ohio named tunasaurus). Examples ? The Bowie 7Inch, pre-order price 49,99.

WHAT A DORK !!

back to business. Mmmhh, nice release

– NG Theme, 2016 from

Nu GuineaThe Tony Allen Experiments

NG

for those, who are not into vinyls. For sure one of the most impressing music documentaries of the last years. This man is…….der pure Wahnsinn

the british Art Yard label released for christmas – what should i buy for my freak butty – partners a real limited to 1000 books schmankerl. We got a few copies. Buying price 69€

SR

Twenty years after its first publication, ART YARD are proud to present the fully revised 2nd edition of Hartmut Geerken’s long unobtainable Omniverse – Sun Ra, a definitive hitch-hiker’s guide to the Sun Ra galaxy.

New full colour images of hundreds of Sun Ra album covers, posters, handbills and ephemera, including reproductions of rare hand drawn and coloured LP sleeves. 304 Pages

something different. There were rumours, about the owners of the first ten numbered albums of Beatles White album – the four fab himself. No.0000005 had two years ago the final price of 80.000$. Ringo Starr sold his last copy with no.0000001 on Dec.05 for unbelievable 790.000$

former Kraftwerk member Florian Schneider collaborates with Dan Lacksman ( ex Telex member ) for a project against plastic pollution in worldwide oceans.

– Stop Plastic Polution

here a real rare moment (08./09.Dec. in Paris on an event for Parley for the Oceans) of privat words from Florian Schneider. About his motivation for this project, why, when…..the most impressive moment of feeling ashamed is, when ignorant attendees while the music stand up and go.

this was the last post for this year  – simply –  Peace wherever !!!

Peace
