Source Material: Riechmann Wunderbar

Wolfgang Riechmann - Wunderbar

I got this one at Record Theater's Bargain Bin, an import from Germany. It was a staple of mix-tapes for many years as well as CFNY's Weird Sunday Night Theme Show, of which I can't remember the name. The sweeping synth soundscapes and electro beats were well ahead of it's time.

German Composer Wolfgang Riechmann from Duesseldorf.This album was released in 1978, unfortunatly he himself was killed 4 days before the official release of his own record in a burglary. Shiza!
Very nice album, floating sequences, the first track sounds like a spaghetti western theme.
I've been looking for this one for years. --kk
