The Ravers - Going Underground (1969)





Rare German beat album from 1969. The Ravers were in fact the Tonics and their singer was Toni Tornado.

“Bad, Bad World” subtitled “Ravers Going Underground” was released on Tip in 1969. This obviously was a product of the Hamburg cheapo mafia, a bunch of Rattles, German Bonds and Wonderland musicians (Achim Reichel), who used to make some extra bread with exploitation classics like Hell Preachers Inc. or Bokaj Retsiem. “We’ve Got Too Much” is a typical Herbert Hildebrandt production (Ex-Rattle and somekind of a German Kim Fowley). No one could rip off a Kinks-riff like the Kinks, but The Ravers came close !

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...
