Guten Tag! Willkommen to the third and final installment of the In-Kraut. Once again, the Marina label takes you on a deep trip into the funky musical spheres of 1960s and 1970s Germany - an undiscovered universe full of Hammond-heavy grooves, tight big band arrangements and fuzz guitar-enhanced dancefloor nuggets. Dip into a motherlode of 20 rare soul, beat, now sound, mod, jazz & soundtrack gems - most of them appearing for the first time on CD, finally destined to move the Kraut. The In-Kraut Vol. 3 kickstarts with the incredibly switched-on "Glory Be" by Daisy Clan, a great mod stomper drenched in fuzz guitars and heavy percussion - masterminded by German music biz legends Joachim Heider and Michael Holm. The party continues with Bavarian groove agent Ambros Seelos, a man who certainly knew how to cook up a groove. Super-fantastisch! This release also naturally features a couple of cool and unique cover versions. Dieter Zimmermann tackles Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" orchestra-style - adding a whole lotta fresh new twists and turns to the played-to-death rock classic. Inga rocks Sonny & Cher's "The Beat Goes On," and Katja Ebstein delivers a great "druggy" take on the Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night." Way out. Film music maestro Peter Thomas paints a crazy end-of-the-world scenario with the hilarious "The World Is Gone" and Hammond organ god Ingfried Hoffmann appears with two knock-out groove nuggets: "Stroke It" and the supremely funky "That's Me Boy" by his late '60s outfit Memphis Black. Trombone ace Peter Herbolzheimer strikes with his all-star killer big band Certain Lions & Tigers - delivering a great, Latin-flavored version of "Fever." Rolf Kühn, one of Germany's most distinguished jazz musicians ever, calms US down again with the deliciously chilled-out "Playmate," featuring a great Fender Rhodes part, topped with strings. There's also Georgees' super-rare soundtrack nugget "Butterflies Never Cry," sounding like something taken directly from the score to Barbarella. The German Top Five's take on rare groove classic "The Champ" - one of the most sampled tracks in hip-hop history - is even more funky than the original. The In-Kraut Vol. 3 was assembled by Stefan Kassel and Frank Jastfelder. Three is the magic number. Other artists include: Gene Williams, the Rainbow Orchestra, Heinz Kiessling, Frank & the Top Ten, Adam & Eve, Hazy Osterwald Sextet, Acid and Karl Schiller.
