EXCALIBUR, Club Twenty Eight, 1978Posted: February 19, 2009
In this weeks heap of bad taste and utter nonsense, a advertisement record fits right in. This Flexi-disc was made for the German chain store company and travel agency “Neckermann” by seminal Krautrockers Excalibur who released a Sabbath-inspired LP in 1971. It advertises for the travel offer Club 28 Reisen that was geared towards young people.
Right now somebody is trying to sell this flexi-disc on eBay for 50 Euros because of those Krautrock credentials. Hopefully nobody will fall for it.
“Club Twenty Eight” is a pretty lame Reggae-Pop song, not nearly as entertaining as the advertisement record that Joy Unlimited did for the Deutsche Bahn.They needed the money and this was a job that hopefully paid well.
I shouldn`t make it all sound too bad. The song is kinda catchy and I still like the little cartoon on the back of the sleeve with the angel and the devil dancing together. Cute.
But don`t pay more than 50 Cents…
