    Mandrill, Mandrill Is, 1972, Polydor USA, PD 5025

    Reissue. Funk-Rock-Soul-Latin-Jazz. Listen to the fantastic "Lord of the golden baboon" B2. One of the best funk sounds ever. Forgotten gem?

    Siegel-Schwall Band, Sleepy Hollow, 1972, Line Germany, 6.24216, Reissue 1980

    Listen to "His good time band" B1, a tribute to an exemplary musician who just didn't care to compete commercially, but was content enough to play his music solely for the love of it, surely spoke for Siegel-Schwall... (Wikipedia)

    Red Norvo Trio, The Savoy Sessions, 1985, Savoy Germany, WL70540(2), 2LP

    Zing! Went the strings of my heart: found last week in the "Brockenhaus" for SFr. 4.90.
    Tal Farlow, guitars. Charles Mingus, bass. Recorded 1950/51 in Los Angeles and Chicago. The fascination of Jazz music lies (among others) in the various combinations of musicians.

    I just put up iTunes and let it run on shuffle ... it came up with

    Lightnin' Hopkins ‎– The Complete Prestige / Bluesville Recordings

    did not realize that I even had this ... but it sure is fine.

    Yes, I've got my reasons and to me they're all true,
    And I wouldn't change them, not even for you.

    Mentioned in a previous post I might post these LP's from the sixties.

    Certainly not "what's playing now", nor tomorrow, but I've had these records for a long time, from my father, kept them for no particular reason. Once in a while use as test record.

    Ballroom type music, not my style, they seem to be part of a series.

    They're in good shape and very well made: thick vinyl, very low noise.

    Don't know much about them, the writing is in German which I can't read. However, on the last pic just above the musicians' photo its indicated Manufactured by Deutsche Grammophon, Hamburg, whose reputation I know from having some classical music from that label.

    Maybe German members or others here know more about these. Regards,

    Richard

    Yes, Hans aka James Last (1929 - 2015) released tons of quite boring dance, party and elevator music throughout the Sixties to Eighties. Definitely not my style, too. His labels Deutsche Grammophon and Polydor were amongt the highest quality labels (recording-wise and sound-wise) here in Germany. Deutsche Grammophon released and still releases superb sounding classical music.

    OTOH, Last was producer of the following, quite remarkable psychedelic thang from 1968:



    Note Les Humphries on organ, yet to become another successful (but boring and annoying) musician in Germany.

    Best regards!

    Hi Kay,

    Thanks a lot for your insight.

    Yes "quite boring dance, party and elevator music", lol

    RE "Deutsche Grammophon and Polydor were amongt the highest quality labels (recording-wise and sound-wise)"

    That sure appears to be exact. Though that music isn't my cup of tea, I'm amazed at the quality pressings and sound of these from the 60's! I have many popular and rock albums from the 70's (US, Canada, British groups) and they sure don't match that low noise and German quality from a decade earlier! I guess the Germans had it while others didn't...

    So, Hans had a great label for his not so great music... Best Regards,

    Richard

    I'm not sure whether Polydor was a subsidiary of Deutsche Grammophon or vice versa . At least they shared common pressing plants.

    Best regards!

    James Last, Well Kept Secret, 1975, Polydor USA, PD 6040

    Agreed, an absolute lowlight of German culture. But also nearly every average Swiss family bought those dumb James Last albums in the 70ies! Also the Lps of The Les Humphries Singers. But there was and still is much lightweight music in Germany, especially many productions of "Schlager" music. In Switzerland's second hand shops there are thousands of these dumb records: non-sellers, but (as you noticed) mostly in mint quality! Sheer waste of vinyl.
    This one is a well kept secret: the only album of James Last you might accept, because of these famous musicians: Larry Carlton, Dean Parks, Jim Gordon. Recorded at Record Plant Los Angeles.

    Ok, thank you, Fritz! I was right in my first assumption. Polydor was a subsidiary of Deutsche Grammophon, and their comon record plant was in Berlin-Tempelhof, see here.

    Best regards!
