Wonderland - Moscow (1968-71)


 

Personnel:
ACHIM REICHEL g, v(HELMUT FRANKE g)
AKALLE TRAPP g, v(LES HUMPHRIES kb)
ACLAUS-ROBERT KRUSE kb, g, b, v
FRANK DOSTAL v, b
DICKY TARRACH d


They were described as the first german supergroup. Achim Reichel, Frank Dostal and Dicky Tarrach were members of The Rattles, Helmut Franke worked as a studio musician with James Last and Les Humphries quit The Summer Set to join them on organ. Together they released their first (and best) single "Moscow/Poochy" in 1968. "Moscow" was a damned fine song with phasing, great melody and quite a success in Germany. Bear Family released all their output on one album (Bear Family BTS 943400 / 1988). This collection shows that no track can compete with "Moscow". "Boomerang" and "On My Way" are quite catchy but the rest of the material is rather weak.

Everyone who knows the blog "Old Melodies" or earlier "Wings of Dream" for many years,knows that there are large archives of music here since 2007 ... 98% of the links up to 2015 are dead. I will gradually be engaged in their recovery. This takes a very long time, so the answers to requests will be minimal and in no way will be accepted from anonymous users. I spend a very long time on my uploads. Please,find a couple of seconds to sign your comment or message. I hope for understanding...
