Ingrid Kup
Feel Me



©1982 Teldec Digital 6.25034 AP
320 Kbps. Vinyl rip

Ingrid Kup, great voice, no recognition. Once she was half of the duo Big Mouth & Little Eve who had one hit (Uncle) in 1975. In 1977 the duo stopped and Willem (Big Mouth) and Ingrid (Little Eve) both went solo.

In 1981 Ingrid collaborated with Frank Duval and made a few singles and an album. Frank wrote the songs and produced them. The songs can be discribed as powerballads (think Bonnie Tyler or Doro)

Direct Metal Mastering (DMM) is an audio disc mastering technique developed by Teldec. Instead cutting onto a lacquer-coated disc, DMM cuts the groove directly in copper metal resulting in a higher quality.

Tracks: 01 Love what's your face / 02 What's there about her / 03 Hey butterfly / 04 Song of hope / 05 I'd Like To Be Your Woman / 06 Feel Me / 07 I Will Not Die / 08 Do you remember / 09 Tears in your eyes / 10 Life Goes On

Including coverart and lyrics.

EMC 3277320 Kbps Vinyl rip.

Although there is no mention on the album that there was any Queen involvement here, Brian's guitar playing style, Roger's high voices, Freddie's writing style and Queen harmonies are all around. If they didn't play on this album then Queen had some unbelievable skilled copy-cats.
For the album, its less surprizing as "This One's On Me" but its surprizingly good, more accessible and more rocking.

Tracks: 01 D-D-D-D-D- Danger / 02 Doesn't Give A Damn / 03 Believer / 04 Sweet, Sweet Music / 05 Legs / 06 Star Circus / 07 Tear Down The Walls / 08 This Fab Samba (A Cautionary Tale) / 09 The Black Swan / 10 Talk About Me

320 Kbps Vinyl rip

Two students Kees (KE) and Willem (WI) released this on their own idiot records label (previous 1000 idiots, meaning that there always be 1000 idiots would buy their stuff). It's not easy to categorise their music, it's just too strange. Try some Squeeze with a bit of David Bowie mixed with Gruppo Sportivo and Nits.

Some tracks do end very adrupt. That's not a fault in ripping or coding but it's the way te Kewis intended them.

tracks: 1. Little Asia 2:50 / 2. Greatest Tut 2:14 / 3. The Little Lonely Accordeon 1:02 / 4. Girls on Vacation 2:12 / 5. Robin Hood
3:07 / 6. Doremifa 1:56 / 7. Right Left 3:54 / 8. Monday 3:14 / 9. The Battle of Peak A Boo 2:13 / 10. Biggles 2:44 / 11. Someone 3:12 / 12. Terracotta Me Baby 3:06 / 13. Kewi Music 2:42Coverart included
