Tramp Records

Tramp Records

Profile:
One of Germany's tiniest but funkiest record labels specializing in (not necessarily) rare soul, funk, and jazz reissues as well as releases by contemporary soul/blues/funk revival bands.
Earlier 45 releases were pressed in quantities of 1000. Later, this was reduced to 500. Occasionally there are very limited 7" releases which are only sold on the label's Bandcamp site (e.g. Abraham Battat's "Listen Baby" or Warmth' "Praise Poems", each pressed in a quantity of 113 hand-numbered copies)

While many appreciate the curation of music on this label, the reality seems to be that these are all bootlegs. Can anyone prove the artists are getting paid for these reissues?

January 15, 2006
edited over 12 years ago
One of the best Reissue labels on funk at the moment. While others keep hunting down tons of allready heard funk classics, Mr Kimayer has released the ultimate killer funk rarities never heard of non-stop since the first 45, and he shows no signs of letting the glow fade. He has close contact with The Poets Of Rhythm and he puts unreleased and never-heard-before material on wax. Not only the Poets own music but he manage to find and dust of old forgotten mastertapes from the 70's. Don't ask me how he do it or how he find them, but he knows what we want and delivers them profoundly on high quality pressings. Releasing Bahama Soul Stew was just the most magnificent he has done to date.
If you are interested getting most of them right away without buying some relases here and some there. You may contact him directly and he ships it right away to you if there are any left. Great Bloke, great label. Highly recommended. Can't wait for his next move anytime.
