Format: Audio CD
Most of what I'll say in this review will be intended for those unfamiliar with Slapp Happy (and the many associated bands) - listeners who are already fans of the wonderful work of these folks (as a group and as individuals) are undoubtedly already aware of much of what I'll recount here.
This is the welcome re-issue of the ORIGINAL version of the group's eponymous album which was released on Virgin Records in 1974. The first 11 tracks on this CD were recorded in Wümme (legendary German envelope-stretchers Faust's studio) by Uwe Nettelbeck - Virgin evidently thought the arrangements too rough, and insisted on the songs being re-recorded. While the result of the second session (done with British producer Steve Morse and a group of fine session players) is definitely `tighter' and more commercial, the sessions represented on this CD are the favorite versions of many of the group's fans. The tracklist of the two albums is almost the same (the song `Charlie `n' Charlie' on this version being replaced by `Haiku' on the Virgin release) - this reissue also boasts 4 bonus tracks, `from the private collection of the group', recorded (I believe) in 1982.
Slapp Happy's style is hard to describe to the non-initiated. Within their unique `twisted pop' arrangements can be heard elements of the German cabaret songs of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, with lyrical humor and references to artists, philosophers, schools of thought, played out in mysterious, compelling and often charming settings. Often, the listener is given the impression that the band is letting him/her in on something that is secret or privileged, pictures or stories or events that are hidden to the world at large.

Format: Audio CD
I can't imagine how Virgin would be unhappy with this recording. Dagmar Kraus drags a fantastic aura of mystery and cabaret around with her which, one would think, Virgin in its more adventurous days would well appreciate. The initial track is a phantasmagorical Grahame Greene scene of romantic-not-romantic spy story: `He used to wear fedoras / But now he sports a Fez, / There's cabalistic innuendo / In everything he says....' One listen to this song on Brave New Waves made me spend years tracking down the album.
Yet the experimental brillance also present in Henry Cow is so carefully and strictly controlled, channeled into something one could call pop, in the way of perhaps T-Rex, but with this eybrows-slightly-raised sideways slant of looking at the world: in `Michelangelo,' for example: `The rumour's out / His hobby is dissection, / But there ain't no doubt / He paints the body to perfection.' And then the album will touch, as with `Everybody's Slimmin',' on those bits of Western life that surely appear as quirky to us, when we actually look at it, as the Japanese. (And perhaps this is a bit of an explanation of their alleged popularity in Japan. Momus is the same way.)
I will admit that the recording itself has occasional tonal faults; `Charlie and Charlie,' for example, is a rather thin and bright, with a hint of distortion, but the song still comes through as clear as a bell. The opposite direction is not necessarially any better; the Phil Spector-produced Leonard Cohen album (<i>Death of a Ladies' Man</i>) is far overproduced, yet both that and this share something in common: the music comes straight through, overcoming any sort of production (or lack thereof) applied to it.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Charlie Brown on March 19, 2007
Format: Audio CD
This Cd has probably been in my disc player more than any other single album. A product of the early 1970s German Pop Underground, it utilizes various tropes of 20th century pop music (psychedelic rock, Bossa Nova, Tango, cool jazz, avant-garde, etc.) but completely transforms them in unexpected ways. On first listen, the disc just seemed pleasant and charming ... but I had to listen again, and each play revealed more surprises. Lead vocalist is the incomparable Dagmar Krause, and she is ably supported by various members of Slapp Happy and Faust. If you can imagine a young Lotte Lenya singing British-style 1970s pop, you will get a rough idea. The songs on this disc keep going through my head for weeks after listening to them, until I break down and play them again. The performances, arrangements and production are never overly-polished, but have a beautiful rough and innocent quality. Listeners should be aware that this material was recorded twice: the later version is also available as "Casablanca Moon" (coupled with "Desperate Straights"), but I like the takes here much better. This remastering is quite excellent: clear and crisp, but still sounds like an LP (which it originally was). Lovers of Krautrock bands like Can and Amon Duul may have missed this, but they might be delighted by its bizarre and tender spirit. Highest possible recommendation!

This is an awesome album, but the tracking is all wonky. In particular, the song The Drum is tacked on to the previous track, and where The Drum should be (per the tracklist) is just some silence. Kind of annoying, at first listen I thought the track was missing entirely. Anyway, still a great album and must have for fans of Faust.
