Editorial Reviews

Founded by drummer Mani Neumeier, this is their 4th release in their classic album series and was originally released in 1973. Most music critics did not quite know what to make of the first 3 albums, which were a mix of psychedelic rock, free jazz and a healthy dose of humour, unclassifiable and great. This fantastic album is no exception and is one of the most important in the ongoing history of Guru Guru. The Rock'n'Roll medley on this disc gives a hint as to how much fun this band was and is live and also contains the unforgettable musical earworm Der Elektrolurch, which became Mani's alter ego and is a classic in its own right. Produced by Guru Guru and Conny Plank.

Originally released in 1973, as this was Guru Guru's fourth album. Not as outstanding as 'UFO' ('70) or 'Kanguru' ('72) - see my reviews. Total of five tracks here, best are the last two cuts that happen to be the traditional lengthy Guru Guru tunes that most of us have come to expect. The ten-minute stunning "Der Elektrolurch" (a cut that Mani still plays live to this day) and the twelve-minute lesser known cosmic gem "The Story Of Life", the vocals could be better but the playing is superb. "Samantha's Rabbit" and "Woman Drum" really didn't do much for me. Maybe not a krautrock classic, but still worth snatching up a copy of and giving a spin every now and then. Line-up: Mani Neumeier - drums, percussion & vocals, Ax Genrich - guitar & vocals, Bruno Schaab - bass & vocals and Connie Plank (R.I.P.) - engineer.

Wenn man dem Kraut Rock um diese Zeit (1974) einen Vorwurf machen durfte, dann, daß er sich selbst zu ernst und intellektuell nahm. Auf einen traf das mit Sicherheit nicht zu. Mani Neumayer, ein versierter Schlagzeuger, mit viel Jazz-Hintergrund. Auf den Festivals brachten seine Einlagen das Publikum stets zum Lachen. Die vorherigen Gutu-Gutru LPs waren auch nicht schlecht, doch etwas lang und improvisatorisch.
So locker, melodiös und eingängig hörte man Guru Guru selten. Die Platte ist dominiert von Ax Genrichs origineller, facettenreich pulsierender Heavy-Gitarre. Diese Platte ist wirklich ein Hightlight unter dem Kraut-Rock. Die Songs kommt mit einem Groove, Tempowechseln, guten Riffs, die Gitarre von Ax Genrich klang nie so gekonnt und gut. Eine "Guru Guru" Platte, die teilweise (das beißende Rock'n Roll Medley z.B.) sogar tanzbar ist. Früher gabe es diese LP als Zusammenstellung mit "Känguru" als DoLP (verschwommenes grünes Cover). Ihr bekanntestes Stück "Elektrulurch" ist auch drauf. "Story of life" hat ein langes, tolles fade-out. Die Texte und Melodien lassen wieder den eigentümlichen Humor der Gruppe spüren. Die Platte dürfte in ihrer Fetzigkeit auch damalige Fans von Status Quo oder Deep Purple angesprochen haben. Mit "Tango Fango" meine Lieblingsplatte der Gruppe, die heute wieder tourt, ich glaube Ax Genrich ist auch wieder dabei. Jedes Jahr gibt es seit langem auch in Finkenbach (Odenwald, Germany) ca im Juli ein Popfestival, daß von Mani Neumaier organisiert ist, bei dem viele alte deutsche Rockgruppen sowie neue auftreten.
