    Meat Loaf, Paradise by the dashboard light, 1977

    The duet by Meat Loaf with Ellen Foley in "Paradise by the dashboard light" is big funny cinema. The expulsion from paradise. Girl: Will you love me forever? Boy: Let me sleep on it. Girl: Before we go any further, do you love me? Boy: I'll give you an answer in the morning..... And finally in the usual end after some years: Boy: ...if i gotta spend another minute with you i don't think that i can really survive. Praying for the end of time, so i can end my time with you....

    More than 10cc of humor. Great ear-cinema. Grosses Ohrenkino!
    A forgotten gem IMHO.

    Apparently Jürgen Fritz outlived all his dudes after so many Russian Roulettes. But this was his last Triumvirat record. Triumvirat? In fact this was a solo LP. Old loves die hard...

    The Rutles, Same, 1978, WB USA, HS 3151

    The best Beatles-spoof by the Prefab Four: Dirk McQuickly, Ron Nasty, Stig O'Hara and Barry Wom. Great art work. Inside sleeve with fictional LP-advertisements of the fictional "Rutle" record label. Plus fanciful 16p. booklet. Delightful...
