Soul Jazz Records Presents: Experimental German Rock and Electronic Musik 1972-1983 (Record A)

Another absolutely FANTASTIC compilation from Soul Jazz Records. I don’t know what was in the water on the Hinterland around this time, but Fick Mich, what an absolute stonker of a record.

There’s an abundance of creativity, unbridled streams of consciousness (the antithesis of the stoic, self conscious post-war German?) and as you would expect, impeccable application.

While it’s only half of the 2x CD version, it’s designated “Record A”, it sounds all the better over 4 sides of vinyl. I’m going to hunt down “Record B” as there’s simply no going back to digital shiny plastic.

This year, as Jessie from the “Fast Show” would say, I have been mainly eating compilations. In a most cases this makes for more enjoyable and “active” listening sessions as opposed to just recycling old CDs or “safe” vinyl.
