Editorial Reviews

No other artist has had as lasting an influence on German rock music as Inga Rumpf. Her smokey, bluesy voice, influenced by icons such as Mahalia Jackson and Nina Simone, fills fans all over the world with enthusiasm to this day. Her seemingly limitless stylistic range has rightfully earned Inga Rumpf a reputation as Germany s no. 1 rock vocalist.

1970s All Will Be Changed saw the newly formed band gear their music to established international sounds, but they immediately found their own style thanks to the ever-present drone of a Hammond organ and Rumpf s unique voice. They initially worked without a guitarist, allowing keyboardist Jean-Jacques Kravetz to rotate the powerful Leslie rotor. The national press initially eyed Frumpy with the typical scepticism of that time towards anybody who made rock music on German shores. Unimpressed by such ambiguities, Frumpy continued to work on their career and influenced countless other bands and vocalists over the years.

Their now legendary debut album is being released completely remastered in digipak format with exclusive liner notation and rare photos.

Almost completely different from the other Frumpy albums (there is no lead guitar solos) this is still a wonderful example of German progressive rock of the early seventies. Forget the opening track 'life without pain' which is a gospel type thing and totally different from what follows, which is keyboard dominated with lots of long solos maybe a little similar to Atomic rooster, but what stands out is the stunning singing of Inga Rumf surely one of the best female vocalist ever! Whereas the latter albums were more rock orientated, this is much more involved with changing time signatures and tracks that flow into each other. In my opinion, Frumpy were the best band ever to come out of Germany (and yes i have heard Can and Amon Dull) because they avoided all the indulgencies that ruined the other bands. Supreme musicianship. Buy it!

Frumpy were unique among prog bands. They could tear the wallpaper with solos as good as any, but embraced blues where many other in the genre abandoned or mutated it.

This album starts with a gospel based number that could be from Exile On Main St. Then All Will Be Changed blasts into jammier terriorty. Much of this music is blues based, but Frumpy had a unique way of lending a classical elegance to their blues without a wiff of pretention. They were able to be sophistaced without losing the essence of the music.

Great album from a great band.

I've been aware of Frumpy for ages, but my experiences with Atlantis (which feature both Inga Rumpf and Jean Jacques Kravetz) and Randy Pie (which featured Kravetz) weren't exactly mindblowing (decent enough, but nothing that blew me away), so I was in a huge shock when I got to hear All Will Be Changed, Frumpy's 1970 debut, released on Philips with the gimmick plastic covering. The organ playing from Kravetz just completely blow me away! Inga Rumpf is often referred to as the German Janis Joplin, but she doesn't tend to scream the way Janis herself did. It's often pointed out that many people thought Inga was a guy because she often frequently sang like one. I was fooled when I first heard the self-entitled 1973 Atlantis album (even though there was clearly a lady in the band photo on the back cover).

"Life Without Pain" might not the be most encouraging opening cut. It's obvious they were wanting a radio-friendly song, so here it was, gospel rock with hippie lyrics. Then comes "Rosalie Part I"/"Otium"/"Rosalie Part II" which is basically meant to be listened to as one, is simply so mindblowing you can forgive the somewhat generic opening cut. I love how this piece starts of slow, then Kravetz starts giving some incredible organ playing that spills over to "Otium". "Rosalie Part II" is obviously back to the singing. They do a cover of Richie Havens' "Indian Rope Man", which seemed to be a favorite for every bluesy/proggy/psychedelic group at the time to cover like Warm Dust (w/Paul Carrack, years before Ace or Mike & the Mechanics), Tomorrow's Gift, and Julie Driscoll with Brian Auger & The Trinity, plus many others. "Tomorrow" is another killer piece that just blows me away. The band gets more experimental with "Floating Part I"/"Baroque"/"Floating Part II", with strange organ passages, a drum solo, and even use of Mellotron.

You gotta get this album, it'll blow you away!
