Klaus Doldinger's Passport (With Volker Kriegel) - Live at Onkel Pö, Hamburg, Germany, 1974-02-12 [2CD][FLAC]



Picture above: Original Concert Poster (not this concert!)


Absolutely stunning music from a criminally underrated band!


Thanks to fbauer !!!



Lineup:

Klaus Doldinger - sax
Curt Cress - drums
Wolfgang Schmid - bass
Kristian Schulze - keys
Volker Kriegel - guitar
Inga Rumpf - vocals


Quality varies - most tracks are bright and clear, some are muddy - it sounds like there are a couple of different sources used.


Doldinger's work is not proper documented yet

Although there are fan pages

Tonycrimson notes:

This really is an amazing torrent as any live Passport from the 70's is rare enough and most of this recording has very good sound quality for its age. It could well be Volker Kriegel guesting on guitar, he certainly played with Passport at some of the Doldinger Jubilee concerts. If the date of the gig is correct (I assume its 12th Feb 1974 and not 2nd Dec) then 2 of the tracks here Homuncuus and Damals) were performed live 9 months before they were recorded in the studio for the superb Cross Collateral album. I am fairly certain that tracks 5 and 6 of disc 1 are from a completely different concert and are not by Passport at all but Al Di Meola !!!


Here's the complete setlist (minus the extraneous tracks)

thanks to Saoshya !!


01 - Abracadabra
02 - Nexus
03 - Homunculus
04 - Looking Through
05 - Mr Big Shot
06 - Ready For Take Off
07 - A Simple Song
08 - Rockport

09 - Fairytale
10 - Zwischenspiel
11 - Eloquence
12 - Damals
13 - Puzzle
14 - Hand Made
15 - Lemuria's Dance

Total time: 02:14:02



*Sound quality takes a noticeable dip from Disc 2, track 8 onwards but still very listenable.

Despite the few imperfections mentioned above, this recording is one of the best thing I have ever found on DIME. Absolutely stunning music from a criminally underrated band.






Format: FLAC





Enjoy this fantastic concert !!!!!!!!!
