world of soundtrack music of the 1960s and 70s. Discover vocal nuggets
performed by Daisy Door, Eric Brodka, James Darvin, Mike Redford, Kerry
Hallam and other soulful voices.
A compilation with previously unreleased music from Germany's coolest
filmcomposer. It shows an undiscovered part of his work: The soundtracks
for his erotic and love-movies of the 1960s and 70s, like Angels With
Burnt Wings, Do You Believe In Swedish Sin?, Little Women, Seventeen And
Anxious, Oh Happy Day , Happening In White etc.
The music styles change like German weather in april: Beat, Jazz, Pop,
Easy Listening and Bossa, or how Peter Thomas describes it:
"This compilation is a certain kind of chic, nutty, bizarre, spheric,
sinful-horny music out of the erotic soundscape of the
acoustic-phonetic-hotline-lounge-party-music universe." Got it?
Rounded up by exclusive liner notes from the master himself and awesome
photos from the movies. "While America had the smooth jazz of Henry
Mancini, Italy the lush atmospherics of Ennio Morricone, England the bold
brass of John Barry, and France the moog experimentation of Jean Jacques
Perry, Germany had all these rolled into one - Peter Thomas!"
(The Millionaire / Combustible Edison)
