Return Ticket (Lord 33525) 1978 Germany *
Relive the ‘70s via this six-man German band’s groove-worthy platter of funk, rock, jazz and disco. The bass, synthesizers and electric guitars are all heavily funkified, and when they toss in snappy horns, jazzy saxophone and falsetto vocals, there’s a party goin’ on. The lively opener ‘Return Ticket’ would have ﬁt comfortably on a play-list right between Wild Cherry and Foxy (okay, so half of you just threw up, but for those who don’t mind an occasional retro shake of the ol’ booty, these boys can deliver). Not all the cuts are up to par, especially a couple of the ballads, but when they do manage to get a decent groove going, as on ‘Heaven Bound’, ‘Hallelujah Jive’ or the disco/jazz instrumental ‘To My Brother’, a good time is had by all. All songs sung in English. Same German label as all those Eden lps. (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
I have not acquired this album yet. Thank you Donald cover photo for this one and the track list.
