Super library music funk from the Germany labels Golden Ring and Happy Records. These pieces were produced between 1974 and 1979 and have elements in common with the English library music of the same period but with a bit more instrumentation and heavier drums. Quite a few of the tracks fit the mould of crime funk with driving beats and dramatic horns while others take a jazzier route with freaked out synths. Siegfried Schwab returns to Funky Frolic after appearing on the Vampyros Lesbos soundtrack and his work featured here is top notch, especially "High Snobiety". I am attempting to locate Volumes 2 and 3 on the internet and will hopefully post them here in the future.
