3 stars 3.5 starss really

This group started in the 60's as The City Preachers (a German-Irish folk band that included future Slapp Happy's Dagmar Krause), but by the turn of the decade, the remaining quartet had formed Frumpy, started playing their first gig in France (the KB Jean Jacques Kravetz is French) and in August recorded their debut album, which sold quite well (Frumpy is one of the better selling full-blown German prog bands of those years), partly due to their transparent chameleon artwork gatefold plastic cover. This artwork and the more stupendous one from their second album were worthy of the Vertigo label, but by the time of their third album and Phillips (the owner of Vertigo) switching them there , Frumpy's best moments were gone.

This guitar-less quartet is an example that it is possible to have a keyboard sound without sounding like ELP, and this is not only due to Inga Rumpf's instantly recognizable voice, but Kravetz long (but never boring) keyboard (mainly organs) workouts and Carsten Bohn's inventive drumming.

After the short opener Life Without Pain, the single, Rosalie (14 min+) is a very dramatic track full of great soloing and Rumpf's bluesy vocals. With Indian Rope Man, the album reaches a peak in tension, while Morning (the opener on the other side of the slice of wax) is more of a hard driving machine (the single's B-side). The Floating/Baroque track is plagued by lenghty and experimental solos (which have not really aged well, but are not completely devoid of charms, even the drum solo is good (IF you can consider one good ;-). The Cd releases holds two bonus tracks, which from memory sound fairly different and with a guitar, making you think that they date from the second album, once guitarist Rainer Bauman had joined them.

Certainly a product of its time, with that typical raw sound that only German bands elevated to a form of art, Frumpy's debut album is a full blown-prog album that deserves to be heard, but progheads be aware that it is not flawless.

4 stars For those of you who were there when this album was released, FRUMPY was one of the classic rock bands with its distinctive vocalist Inga Rumpf. I was just 10 years old at that time and by the time I knew the band it was 5 years late already through their legendary hit "Singing Song". From this song it was quite obvious that the unique quality of the band was basically at its lead singer, especially with her unique timbre. The story started when four musicians were all members of Irishman O' Brian-Docker's folkband The City Preachers, which was founded in Hamburg in 1965.

The band's debut album "All Will Be Changed" was released in 1970. For me personally, this is an excellent album regardless it's prog or not. It doesn't matter, I think. One thing so peculiar about this album is its sound that really represents the sound of the seventies. Well, talking about 70's music you must have known how the sonic quality of rock music recorded during that time sounds like. This kind of sound is so distinctive that sometimes I compare with the modern sound technology with state of the art digital equipment through the music of Porcupine Tree, for example. I can feel the difference and in a way people might say that modern technology record is much better than the old days but no one now can produce the seventies sounds, do you find one? That's what I really enjoy about this debut album by FRUMPY.

Musically, I also consider that this is an excellent one in terms of songwriting, composition, cohesiveness and musicianship. Jean-Jacques Kravetz plays important role in producing various keyboards sounds especially the use of Hammond organ. Karl-Heinz Schott provides dynamic bass for especially tracks with jazzy touch. Carsten Bohn Bandstand does a good job with his drums. The opening track "Life Without Pain" (3:50) is basically a classic pop music. The band starts its full potential with second track "Rosalie, Part 1" (6:00) - "Otium" (4:22) - "Rosalie, Part 2" (4:14). Hammond organ makes its wonderful solo accompanied with bass guitar work in "Otium". It's really stunning and it's so seventies!

"Indian Rope Man" (3:19) brings the music into different style but still maintaining the singing style of Inga Rumpf. Bass plays dynamic fills accompanying piano as well as organ. It's another good track to enjoy. In "Morning" (3:24) again Karl-Heinz Schott provides dynamic bass in upbeat tempo. It continues seamlessly to "Floating, Part 1" (7:39) followed with Hammond organ solo in "Baroque" (7:36) and it ends excellently with "Floating, Part 2" (1:25).

Overall, I highly recommend those of you who love vintage rock music to purchase this cd. It's an excellent addition to any music collection. Keep on proggin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW

4 stars Let's just say better now than never when it comes for Frumpy. I've been aware of them for years, and around the same time I was aware of Frumpy, I was also aware of Atlantis, and I did buy a copy of Atlantis' 1973 debut in 1997 (a German swirl Vertigo copy no less), but at the time I didn't make ...
