Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music.
PROF. WOLFFF, a german band from Ulm, started in the early 70's and unfortunately produced only one album. Remarkable is the use of lyrics in german similar to FLOH DE COLOGNE. Despite that the band never had a political approach the lyrics are provoking a lot though trying to digest the rebellious times in which they lived. This is combined with the typical mix of blues, folk and psychedelia which can be also defined as krautrock. As a result, other musicians must have been inspired for sure to compose rock songs using the native german language. The band was busy with gigs all over Germany and also had a TV appearance.
A Fritz Kreisler recording can always be recognized by the violinist's beefy, baritonal sonority, inimitable portamento, and communicative warmth. Most of the repertoire here consists of the short, encore pieces that prevailed in the era of 78rpm records, many penned or arranged by Kreisler, who was always on the lookout for memorable tunes.
Along with his friend Caruso, Fritz Kreisler (1875–1962) was one of the superstars of the early gramophone era. He was “the master musician among the violinists of the day” (New York Times); he died 50 years ago (29 January 1962). As a composer, he is famous for his Viennese-style melodies, such as Liebesfreud and Liebesleid, for his notorious pieces “in the style of” various 18th-century masters (which he passed off as their original works, claiming to have rediscovered them in old manuscripts), and for his arrangements of well-known works by other composers.
