    Deodato, Happy Hour, 1982, WB Germany, 56 983

    Happy hour? Sad 35 minutes of easy-listening disco plunder. Everything Deodato produced for Warner Brothers was trash.
    Listen to A1 "Keep on moving" (in which direction?) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzBtHxZqsZg

    Where is Martin Barres guitar? Where are the drums? No real drums, only poor synthesizing in excess...
    LoL. What a bummer. Although short of his Christmas stuff, I don't know any Tull past War Child, and I wish I didn't know that album.

    Ray Charles, Invites You To Listen, 1967, EMI England, CSD 3630

    The silly falsetto voice of Ray Charles on this one: still unbearable after these 56 years. But there are some wonderful tracks anyway.

    Oh whoa, he covered "Yesterday?" Perhaps I'll add that to the list of things to try and listen to.

    Eberhard Schoener/Sting/Andy Summers, 1978, Mercury Germany, 830 824 1

    The worst of Sting: what annoying voice! One half of this LP is unbearable high-pitched vocal trash. The work of Eberhard Schoener and Andy Summers is OK. Olaf Kübler ts/as.
    The Police arrested this importunate singer...

    Frank Zappa, Ship Arriving Too Late, 1982, Barking Pumpkin US, FW 38066

    Listen to ???
    Annoying. Steve Vai plays "Impossible guitar". Agreed.

    "Barking pumpkin records". Say no more.

    I missed your post about Sting. Years ago my friend bestowed his collection of tapes upon me, I'm just now getting to them. One I picked at random the other week was "Peter Gabriel Live". It was absolutely awful and boring. The second tape I picked was Sting live. That was equally terrible. I've discovered I do not care for Sting without the Police behind him.

    Sphincter Ensemble, Harrodian Event "1, 1972, Trading Places UK, TDP 54046

    Don't buy this one. It's the Great Prog Rock Swindle of the 70ies. Buckmaster/Ford/Gustafson et al: God forgive them because they did not know what they did. They did not know what to do. Do they know now?
