Helmut Zacharias - Light my Fire (1971, DE, lounge) 
Saturday, December 2, 2006, 03:28 PM - Music, - DE, Fun, English
Helmut Zacharias is a classical trained German violinist, orchestral leader and arranger. On this lp he assaults some well known pop songs.
I knew him from the wonderful Ultra-Lounge on the Rocks cd samplers and a few days ago I saw this lp for 5€ and I couldn't resist buying it.
Most of these tunes are also available on his cd Respect 1968 Capitol. On previous link you listen to fragments.



Side one:
1 Light my fire (The Doors)
2 Baby love (The Supremes)
3 Little green apples (Bobby Russell)
4 Those were the days (Mary Hopkin)
5 Ob-la-di ob-la-da (The Beatles)
6 Naturally stoned (Avante Garde, James Bond theme)

Side two:
1 Respect (Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin)
2 The house that Jack built (Aretha Franklin)
3 Step inside love (Cilla Black, Lennon-McCartney)
4 I say a little prayer (Burt Bacharach)
5 Brown eyed woman (Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil)
6 Satisfaction (Rolling Stones)

Not shared anymore. Complaints received.

Group 1850 - Mother Nohead @ van Oekel's Discohoek (1975, NL, psychedelic) 
Monday, October 30, 2006, 06:11 PM - Music, - NL, Fun, English, Nederlands
This is a late appearance of Group 1850 on Dutch television.
I don't think the Group really existed at that time. It is Peter Sjardin who is playbacking, but the rest are invited friends I suppose.

Van Oekel's Discohoek was a persiflage on other popular music programs, presented by Sjef van Oekel, who couldn't learn a single line by heart. Therefor he always hold papers with the text in his hand. The writer of the show, Wim T Schippers, exploited this: if Sjef anyway had to read his text from paper, why care for easy to remember lines? So there was no limit in the absurdness of the script.



Group 1850 was not so popular in the Netherlands, I remember a concert where there were not even 10 paying visitors. Instead of doing their normal show they invited the audience on the stage to play with them. I didn't dare...
