    Fleetwood Mac, Oh Well (Part 2), 1969, Reprise Germany, RA 27000

    Peter Green revealed in a 1994 interview that he wrote "Oh Well Part 2" first, intending to release the song as the A-side. Inspired by some Spanish guitar playing he heard on the radio, he purchased a Ramirez Spanish guitar specifically for "Oh Well Part 2". Soon after, he wrote "Part 1" as a throwaway riff for the B-side. "Part 1" ended up on the A side against Green's wishes, and became a worldwide hit.[2] (Wikipedia)

    Was it the correct decision of the A&R manager?

    John Fogerty, Ricochet, 1973, Bellaphon Germany, BF 18220

    After a free jazz sax intro this instrumental rocks! Great guitar and organ and John's screaming in the background. Fogerty plays all instruments by himself. Fun!

    Free, Mouthful of grass, 1970, Island Germany, 6014 016

    Flip side of "All right now". A calm guitar instrumental. A majestic bijou.

    Genesis, Feeding the fire, 1986, Virgin Germany, 108 632-100

    Flip side of "Land of confusion". Would have been the better choice for an A-side track. Interesting multifaceted composition.

    Dire Straits, Eastbound Train, 1978, Vertigo Germany, 6059 206

    Flip side of "Sultan of swing".
    This is the live track that was recorded as one of the first songs of Mark "Sultan" Knopfler. A jazzy honkytonk rag boogie with a miraculous guitar solo. You feel alright when you hear the music ring...

    Eagles, Teenage Jail, 1979, Asylum Germany, AS 12 394 N

    Eagles go Black Sabbath with a wicked synthie solo followed by an optimistic Don Felder guitar solo. At idle speed after a long run....

    Paul McCartney, Lawdy Miss Clawdy/Kansas City, 1987, Parlophone EU, 20 2188 6

    45rpm maxisingle. And that's what the results of Paul's one-take sessions (Monday 20 July 1987) amount to: a spontaneous celebration of style and content full stop. (Cit. back cover notes by Roy Carr)
    Together with Mick Green's guitar replanting some roots.

    Sarah Jane Morris, This ain't livin', 1989, Jive Germany, 247170-7

    Ex-Communards. Funky low vocal range. Remarkable guitar and piano tunes. "Me and Mrs Jones" (side A) attained cult status as the BBC banned it for its lesbian implications.

    Bangles, Watching the sky, 1988, CBS Holland, 655313 7

    Debbi Peterson watching a big fat Zeppelin in the sky. The most heavy orientally influenced rock track by the Bangles. Schön!

    Strawbs, Backside, 1973, AM Germany, 12 396 AT

    The Strawbs are "Ciggy Barlust And The Whales from Venus" because
    David Bowie didn't want to be "Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars" any longer. The last show in Hammersmith Odeon, London, was on 3. July 1973. 45 years since the death of Ziggy.....
    Listen to the lyrics! Davy Bowie RIP...

    George Harisson, Apple Scruffs, 1970, Apple France, C006-04751 M

    This one sounds as if it was recorded while Phil Spector was out for a coffee break...
    The "Apple Scruffs" were the central core of the female Beatles fans who used to stay night and day in front of the Apple building and the Abbey Road Studios. And this beautiful simple song was a tribute to these girls.

    Bobby Helms, Fraulein, 1958

    Near the end of world war II, "Fraulein" was one of the most important words for the GIs in Germany. The word Fräulein was not simple to pronounce in English because of the "ä". Today the word "Fräulein" shouldn't be used anymore. It is regarded as not correct because of women's lib. A taboo. The times are a-changing...

    Canned Heat, My time ain't long, 1971, Liberty Germany, 15439

    This is the flipside of the ridiculous waste track "Woooly Bully". "My time ain't long" is a superb forgotten (?) Canned Heat-song, composed by Al Wilson, with a furious guitar outro.
