The decadence of the 80s (Part 63).


Heute praesentiere ich euch ein Studioprojekt aus Pforzheim. In der Tat, so etwas hat es gegeben, und es war recht erfolgreich in Deutschland Mitte der 80er Jahre mit dem Nachspielen von Filmmusik.

Die wohl erfolgreichste Single aus meiner Sicht ist dem Film 'Anschlag bei Nacht' von John Carpenter aus dem Jahr 1976 entnommen. Acht Jahre spaeter also wurde mit Hilfe eines '80er-Jahre-electro-sounds' diese Nummer ein achtbarer Hit.

Mit persoenlich war diese Version der Maxi-Single immer zu kurz, daher habe ich sie verlaengert, so, wie es sich von Anfang an gehoert haette.

ENJOY! Floyd Anderson.

The diffidence of the 70s (Part 7). [repost]

Today I have the big honor to present you a fabulous musician, who had probably the most influence in my life since I know his music (which only begun to me in 1983).
The tune was the first in a row of the so-called Columbia Studio E recording sessions, which started in 1972 and ended with his mid-70s-retirement in 1976. One year earlier he played his last concert in Japan. His retirement because of abusing drugs and being sick should last at least 5 years, rather he did rise again like the Phoenix from the cinder.
The today's track is a very fine blues he recorded on March 9, 1972. Interestingly he didn't release it immediately, but 2 years later on his last studio album of the 70s 'Getting Up With it'. For me it's just a pity that he didn't release some more songs of this genre, but I'm happy with that one anyway. I myself just stretched it, and, my gosh, it wasn't too easy finding a way making the song as easy listening as it is at least. Just.....
ENJOY! Floyd Anderson.
