Achtung German Grooves / Various
... 20 Instrumental Dancefloor Killers from the 60s and 70s. The rehabilitation of German popular musicians continues with this new compilation from the Bureau B label, Hamburg's purveyors of quality music. Achtung! German Grooves brings together wild rare grooves, slick funk workouts, sleazy soul beats, wah-wah guitars, Fender-Rhodes, Hammond organs, meaty drum breaks, snappy horn sections - everything the easygoing '60s and '70s had to offer. Although many of these musicians' first love was jazz and traditional big band, earning some pocket money demanded they create some kicky burners for the groovy dancefloor crowd. Alongside orchestral greats like James Last, Max Greger, Peter Thomas and Ambros Seelos, a number of lesser-known, but nonetheless exciting musicians take a deserved bow. Other artists include: Ady Zehnpfennig, Gerhard Narholz, Hans Haider, Don Kelly Band, Kai Warner And His Orchestra, Theo Schumann Combo, Henry Arland, Heinz Kiessling, Orchester Günter Gollasch, Pete Jacques, Hans Ehrlinger And His Orchestra, Catch Up, Helmut Zacharia's, Roberto Delgado, Berry Lipman and Orchester Walter Kubiczek.
