Weekly Vinyl – Schlager Rennen

31 Jan

Schlager Rennen
Orchester Roy Robbins
(1981)
SONY DSC
I got this one in Switzerland many years ago. If I recall correctly it was at a flea market in Wintertur. What intrigued me was the cover. A Formula One car. A Brabham BT48. The driver is Nelson Piquet. Three times World Champion was he. But not in this car. This car was a dog as I recall.
If you think that the cover’s F1 means that there is high paced energetic music inside then you will be disappointed. Although not quite elevator music, this music is flaccid. It is a typical orchestral arrangement of “hits.” Are there highlights? Well, the first song on this album is called Dance Little Bird. We all know it as the chicken dance. I am glad I have it in my collection because I might just spin it for my kids. They will have a laugh at their parents sake.
There are 28 songs here each blander than the one before. That being said, I still love the cover.
