Back in 1999, the original Telefunken LP 24 MELODIES YOU’LL NEVER FORGET (SLE 141 66-P) was re-released as a CD, but until now the follow-up Volume 2 has never been re-mastered or re-released in its entirety. The idea to combine the two albums was that of Sound Engineer Werner Kohlhammer who has once again used his expertise to breathe new life into these iconic Hammond C3 model organ originals. For historical accuracy VOL2 originally appeared in Germany in a generic series with the title 80 TANZ MAN IN DER HAMMOND BAR (Telefunken SLE 14203-P) and whereas Rolf Ahrens, Franz Rasch & Bert Helsing are credited respectively with playing drums, bass and guitar, there is no indication on volume 1 if the same three musicians comprised of the Rhythumsgruppe. For the first time listener to these wonderful tracks, and with some more memories, here is fellow broadcaster and columnist IAN WOLSTENHOLME…

Listening to any Klaus Wunderlich collection is like putting on a pair of comfortable slippers and to be asked to contribute, in any way, to a new production, is a delight. Whether it’s an age thing, certainly maturity lets you hear the many musical nuances that, even as an admirer of the artist for almost four decades, featuring his music on air and attending his UK concerts, were not fully appreciated by yours truly. The audio quality is superb (considering the masters are fifty years old) with the signature ping-pong stereo effects only serving to add greater depth and character to the ubiquitous Hammond tonebars. Volume 1 comprises two tracks in continuous easy-listening medley.
