I'm Brazilian, I've always loved music and since I was little I buy and I listen to rock. During the 70's I met a magazine called Pop, which I christened German Pop, since it was of Germanic origin, I did not understand what was written in the great majority, but it was there that I met the groups that I publish here on the blog today. Rock made in Germany is one of my favorites, but my taste is very eclectic.
Sou brasileira, sempre amei música e desde muito pequena compro e ouço rock. Durante os anos 70 conheci uma revista chamada Pop, que batizei de Pop Alemã, uma vez que era de origem germânica, eu não entendia o que estava escrito na sua grande maioria, mas foi ali que conheci os grupos que hoje publico aqui no blog. O rock feito da Alemanha é um dos meus favoritos, mas meu gosto é muito eclético.

Wonderland - Moscow (1968-71) (1971)
They were described as the first german supergroup. Achim Reichel, Frank Dostal and Dicky Tarrach were members of The Rattles, Helmut Franke worked as a studio musician with James Last and Les Humphries quit The Summer Set to join them on organ. Together they released their first (and best) single "Moscow/Poochy" in 1968. "Moscow" was a damned fine song with phasing, great melody and quite a success in Germany. Bear Family released all their output on one album (Bear Family BTS 943400 / 1988). This collection shows that no track can compete with "Moscow". "Boomerang" and "On My Way" are quite catchy but the rest of the material is rather weak. They later released (1971) an album as Wonderland Band.
