Format: Audio CD
Anyone unaware as indeed I was, that Germany had a dance scene , especially a dance scene in the late sixties/seventies prepare to have your preconceptions blasted away in sleazy peals of wah wah, coolly sashaying horns and strings so smooth they'll make a baby's bottom jealous. This compilation of twenty tracks courtesy of "Bureau B" shows that the Germans had their own idiosyncratic Saturday night fever long before Travolta donned a white suit. Okay much of it sounds like the soundtrack to seventies porn , indeed some of it may well have been the soundtrack to seventies porn , but if so the music will have been more memorable than some bloke with terrible hair and a moustache to suit grunting away. There is some truly terrific music here.
Personal favourites include the Bond theme style strings and vocal harmonies of Kai Warner "On The Way To Philadelphia", Henry Arland with the truly odd sounding horns and "Oh Mamy" chorus of "Mamy Blue", Heinz Kiessling,s "Orbiter" which sounds like a looser jazzier take on the "U.F.O." theme, Max Gregor and his Orchestra with the Detroit styling's of "Soul Breeze", the sonorous percussion, twanging guitar and dramatic flair of Orchester Gunter Gollasch with "Es steht ein Haus in New Orleans" a brilliantly skewed take on "House Of The Rising Sun".
Add to the that the heavy big band sound of "One For You-One For Me" by Hans Ehrlinger and his Orchestra , the voluminous brass and rhythms of "The House That Jack Built" by Helmut Zacharias, the melodious flirtation of flute and piano on Robert Delgado's "Mocoto",the chunky funky bass and brass of "Mabusso" by Ambros Seelos and most bizarrely James Last with the bongo crazy tumble of "U-Humba".It,s all a miles away from the emollient easy listening you normally associate the man with.

God only knows what it was like for German ravers in the 60's and 70's listening to this, especially those with a tendency for enhanced experiences. There are some brilliant tunes on this record, at times they make you laugh and other times they give you a surge of inspiration, whether that be in life or to make your own music.

For those who like to have a wide array of international themes within their music collection, or simply an alternative form of electronica or dance, this is a must have.

It might not seem to be that appealing at first sight , however, this is a blast from start to finish. It had me grinning from ear to ear all the way through.Something a little different for the collection.Marvellous.

Good But There are Better 12 Feb. 2008
By Brian J. Greene - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you're into groovy German kitsch from the 70s, you will enjoy this. Seems a bunch of German composers were trying to be hip, and trying to sell records, and made all this spaced out, groovy, soundtrack-y kind of stuff. Some of the pictures of the original albums on the insert are almost worth the price of the CD alone. But there are better compilations of this same kind of stuff out there - namely, "The In-Kraut" and "Birds Do It." And then there's the masterful collections from Gert Wilder from his Schoolgirl Report soundtracks. Those other albums have more genuinely good songs than this one, and less that is only enjoyable on a camp basis. Still, if you want to hear the oddest version of House of the Rising Sun you're ever likely to come by, and a bunch of other whacked out German grooves from the 1970s, you will like this.

Achtung! 14 Oct. 2008
By Peter Buzz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
ACHTUNG! GERMAN GROOVES is the name of the new compilation from the BUREAU B. label, Hamburg's purveyors of quality music. As subtitles go, this one pretty much says it all: 20 INSTRUMENTAL DANCEFLOOR KIILLERS FROM THE 60s AND 70s.
The rehabilitation of German popular musicians continues. Word has got out... James Last, Max Greger and Co. are not so staid and boring as their reputations have led us to believe. In their hearts, jazz is their first love. Sadly, however, earning their keep playing outside the box was not an option. Searching through the record company archives for the good stuff is a long and laborious process. But it has been worth it!

ACHTUNG! GERMAN GROOVES brings together 20 such gems. Wild rare grooves, slick funk workouts, sleazy soul beats, wah-wah guitars, Fender-Rhodes, Hammond organs, meaty drum breaks, snappy horn sections - everything the easygoing 60s and 70s had to offer. Alongside orchestral greats like James Last, Max Greger, Peter Thomas and Ambros Seelos, a number of lesser known, but none the less exciting musicians take a deserved bow. Ady Zehnpfennig, Gerhard Narholz, Hans Haider and the rest, we salute you. ACHTUNG BABY!
