As I`ve written before in some older posts, I discovered East-European beat music when I moved to Berlin in 1997 and then developed a habit of buying those records in huge quantities. And cheap too then. I don`t find much any more, the collector-market has caught on, so my own collection seems to be stagnating.

Back then I found them anywhere: in thrift stores, book stores, record stores, even in the trash. This record was from a East-Berlin library that sold their vinyl stock. It has a small sticker saying “Einlage”(store-copy). Mihai Constantinescu is a popular Romanian artist who is still working. He played with the seminal Romanian rock band Mondial and then took of for a solo career.

“Teiul”, written by Constantinescu himself, is a swinging soul/pop/beat dance number with nice horns and organ.
