Moonflowers & Mini Skirts

CD (Item 642996) Marina (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


Wonderful stuff! As you've probably noticed in our soundtrack section, we loooove Peter Thomas, the groovy German composer/bandleader who gave the world the cool soundtracks to Space Patrol (Raumpatrouille) and the Jerry Cotton films. Now the same folks who put together the cool Motor Music compilations have done this one of Thomas' other work from the late 60s and early 70s, and it's a real doozy! The sound's a mix of space age crime, groovy bossa tunes, cool now sound gems, and wild soundtrack-y material. Titles include "Uhr 20", "Opium", "Multi-Kolored Mini-Skirts", "Rockin' Computer", "Milky Way", "Meeting Polermo", "Flash Point", "Moonflower Q 70" and "Black Power", which has vocals by a very young Donna Summer! The sound is amazing, and the CD's a real treat to any fan of groovy Euro stuff from the late 60s! (Out of print.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Groovy new work by the legendary Peter Thomas! "Perry Rhodan 2000" is a driving theme written by Thomas – with an overall melody that reminds us of his 70s work, underpinned by a driving dance theme with distinctly modern tones! A nice one to get Thomas on the dancefloor – ... CD

Two obscure 80s albums from Paul Mauriat – back to back on a single CD! Transparence is from the mid 80s – a time when the hit easy listening maestro Paul Mauriat was really trying to reinvent himself – mixing in some of his earlier slink with tunes that might be a bit more ... CD

Two of Dean Martin's greatest early albums for Capitol on one CD! Dino was always more of a singles artist than an LP artist – but these two albums are some of his few fully-conceived albums, much more in the Sinatra 50s mode than some of the other "hits plus filler" or "songs ... CD

Very groovy compilation of John Schroeder's cool Now Sound stuff from the late 60's.

One of the more orchestral of Roy Budd's scores from the 70's, but still with some nice moments that give a good focus to Roy's piano. The score was written for an Eastern thriller starring David Niven and Toshiro Mifune, and the tracks are a mix of easy and action themes – including "Ki ... CD
