Manfred Krug "Ein Hauch von Frühling" LP.
Released on the East German AMIGA Label in 1972 as Krugs second Album.
With compositions by Günter Fischer this album takes us throug different flavors from Soul, Funk, Easy listening and Rock - which results in a pop-album all done in an attempt to please a wide audience I suppose. But it has some elements which I find interesting in some of the tracks.
First off we have the BLAZING "Wenn draussen grün wird" which is simply the bomb!!! An uptempo soul/pop mover with a driving piano and drums just everywhere!!! The song is about the coming of spring and love - but I think it works all year round!!!
next one is "Jeder Mann der dich sah" a midtempo soul/psych-ish track. Which switches between sweet sweet soul and psych-rock and some heavy strings -almost a musical-sounding piece.
Last on my list of tracks from this LP we have "komm und spiel mit mir" which is kind of a modern sweetsoul track. Not as potent as the two others - but still a nice example to the eastern-europe sweet-soul-scene.......
