Wolfgang Dauner Quintet - The Oimels. 1969 Germany

The Oimels is square on Strobe-light Mascara-caked Babe-a-liciousness. Dauner was no baby boomer, and this album represents the pure escapism of his generation whose collective childhood was nothing but a total living hell. And while Dauner is most known for his serious avant-garde jazz work, why not take a stab at creating the perfect soundtrack for a night at Lucky Lou's circa 1969? You know you're in a special place when track titles like 'Take Off Your Clothes to Feel the Setting Sun' and 'Come On In On In' sound like a good idea. And a swingin' version of 'Greensleeves' to sway your hips Hullabaloo-style with. YEA BABY!

Personal collection
CD: 2006 MPS (Japan)

The CD on MPS (Japan mini-LP) is a bit distorted unfortunately, even though it was licensed directly from the parent in Germany. I would be most curious to hear the original LP or even the Long Hair CD for comparison.

Last listen: July 21, 2016
