JOY UNLIMITED, Go easy, Go Bahn, 1973

One more by krautrockers “Joy Unlimited”. This  record was given to me by “Auge” from the Berlin Comics-Library “Renate” who grew up in the Eastern part of Berlin. When he gave it to me  he said:” You know, there was East-German Rock in the West too!”

As I`ve written elsewhere music with a “purpose” tends to compromise the “artistic” side of it. Much like  the East-German rock music that needed to have a “message” that pleased the communist powers, advertisement records in capitalist West-Germany needed to sell their “message”. In this case “Joy Unlimited” obviously had no problem rockin` out for the Deutsche Bahn, the state-owned German railroad.

With funny results listening to it today…

    Ich hab sie auch als Kind gehabt. Und ich weiß leider nicht, wann und wo (geschweige denn warum) ich sie verloren hab. :-(

    Aber alleine das Back Cover erklärt meinen Geschmack in Bezug auf Frauen zu 75 Prozent.
