Peter Thomas - Moonflowers & Mini-Skirts

Peter Thomas - Moonflowers & Mini-Skirts
Label - Marina (Germany)
Released - Late 60s/Early 70s/1998
Style - Jazz/Lounge/Rock/Funk/Easy Listening/OST/Library

(from Dusty Groove)
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! New version -- with better packaging, and 2 bonus cuts: "Punjab Poppy Juice (Maxwell Implosion rmx)" and "Bonus Beats".
