Tonik's Lab

Crazy-O: Bear Family Records' Rockin' With The Krauts mini-series beats all sales records. Yep, even re-editions of volumes 1 and 2, released shortly before Christmas 2022, sold out before the first fall of snow. So Santa Claus called for a crisis summit, and the production department met to brainstorm for volume 4. And now, Bear Family Records proudly presents another breathtaking compilation of German Rock & Roll from the '50s and early '60s. The balancing act between the Northern Band sound of Conny Quick's Rock Baby Rock, which sounds like Conny singing in the shower to the swing program on his tube radio, and the raw beer cellar sound of the famed Rattles with Shimmy Shimmy, succeeds effortlessly. The compilation delivers unusual gems like the Liverpool Beats' cover of Jimmy Reed's Let's Get Together, a bold copy of the Marcels' Blue Moon, and Kiss Me by Dieter Kersten and his Rockin' Stars. Their garage teen rockabilly is reminiscent of early Johnny Powers. Peter Reese and the Pages deliver a cosmic Silver Surfer sound yet call their instrumental modestly Pages Rhythm. The countryesque Die Farbe der Liebe by jazz virtuoso Paul Kuhn is a late-hour bar shuffle for the Wirtschaftswundermann.
