– Smile, 1979 from the album


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



– Ambiente Elegante, 1975/2016 from the CD compilation


okay – something you can use on the next musical quiz round with your friends. Which, of these following musicians, was a guest in an Oprah Winfrey show

John Lydon, aka Johnny Rotten/ Jello Biafra / Joey Ramone

we say


see you later

– See You Later, 1976 from the album



Do You Realize ?

– Do You Realize, 1978 from the album


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 – anticipation of the year for docu. lovers

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


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


their debut album History Of Flight is  gorgeous !


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


but please – affordable
