A krautrocker´s chocolate bar? The Topset chocolate bar seems to have vanished from the market quickly, at least I can not remember it and I was 8 years old in 1974, a perfect customer for chocolate bars. I guess I was more into Kinderschokolade.

Here´s the Mannheim krautrockers Joy Unlimited, minus the vocalist they named themselves after – Joy Fleming, the inventor of German Soul singing.

I posted another promotional 45 by Joy Unlimited in 2008.

“Was heisst´n das, groovy?”

“Topset ist groovy!”

Nice water color drawing here on the sleeve, but with a classic “mistake” by the artist. Whenever I have drawn guitars like this, the musicians complained: ” That´s wrong! Why do the guitars have no strings?”
