SINCE 1958.

Musik ist schön, macht aber auch viel Arbeit! – © Jens Vollenberg

YOU CAN ONLY UNDERSTAND MY MADNESS IF YOU SHARE MY PASSION.

Be curious! Stay curious!

BUY WITH CONFIDENCE. MY ITEMS ARE PLAY GRADED!

BUT MINT COLLECTORS BEWARE! EVEN WHEN I GRADE A RECORD NM IT MIGHT PLAY WITH SOME NOISE. THAT'S THE WAY IT IS WITH VINYL.
I HAVE NEVER HEARD A VINYL RECORD WITHOUT ANY NOISE. THAT'S WHY IT SAYS: "VINYL LIVES!". IT'S A LIVING MATERIAL.
I FIND IT ANNOYING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT NOISES ON 40 YEARS OLD RECORDS.
LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT!

I’m a music collector for more than 45 years now.

It all started with SANTANA in 1970 and will never end. Very soon I got into Jazz and lots of different styles: Prog-Rock, Latin, Salsa, Brazilian, African music. So, obviously I'm more into rhythm than anything else...

As my musical tastes evolve, I find myself less and less entangled by genre, or trying to fit music into one category or another. I don’t listen that way: I can hop easily from John Coltrane to Kraftwerk. Music is NOT about boundaries — it’s more about what suits my mood.

Some favourites:
SANTANA (UP TO 1979), AIRTO MOREIRA, LARRY HEARD, CARAVAN, THE SENSATIONAL ALEX HARVEY BAND, OPA, BRIAN AUGER, HADLEY CALIMAN, NEU, MAX ROACH, STACEY PULLEN, HATFIELD AND THE NORTH, JOE HAIDER, STEELY DAN, HORACE SILVER, GONG, BILLY HARPER, SOFT MACHINE, CANNONBALL ADDERLEY, RY COODER, JOHN COLTRANE, KRAFTWERK, BOB MARLEY, BILL EVANS, ROBERT WYATT, PASSPORT, TAJ MAHAL, LARRY CORYELL, EGG, JOHNNY GUITAR WATSON, CAN, TONY WILLIAMS, MATCHING MOLE, RAY CHARLES, EDDIE PALMIERI, NATIONAL HEALTH, JAZZTRACK, ROBBEN FORD, LED ZEPPELIN, JACO PASTORIUS, THE WHO, EARTH, WIND & FIRE, OLIVER NELSON, GILGAMESH, MIKE CLARK, KRAAN, JONATHAN RICHMAN, ELVIN JONES, IAN CARR'S NUCLEUS, ENRICO RAVA, MARCOS VALLE, KURT ROSENWINKEL, PAUL DESMOND, KING CRIMSON, SLY & THE FAMILY STONE, DER PLAN, RAY BARRETTO, KENNY CLARKE, CHARLIE PARKER, LUIS GASCA, NICOLA CONTE, ARVO PÄRT, DAEVID ALLEN, KRZYSZTOF KOMEDA, EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER, JOE ZAWINUL, STEVE HILLAGE, ANDREW HILL...

I love all kinds of GOOD music. All records you can find here on RECORDSCOUT are play graded and from my private collection.
Now the time has come to spread it all over the world.

Feel free to contact me. I always appreciate to share my passion in music with others.

Great fusion album. Last track is a bit ruined by false hand clapping of stupid Japanese audience. They simply had a wrong timing :-(
