Udo Lindenberg "No Panic On The Titanic" 1976





















Titus Lux:
In 1976 I saw Udo Lindenberg perform two tracks from this album on the Old Grey Whistle test. I was impressed.
A couple of weeks later I saw a copy in my local store. I didn't buy it and thus began a 20 year quest which ended at a second hand stall at the Glastonbury festival.
A fantastic collection of witty/touching songs. This is to the best of my knowledge Udo's sole English language LP. Only the last track is sung in his native German. (there is a completely German version of this album)
The sleeve notes credit Michael Chapman as having translated the lyrics. I feel his contribution must have had a huge bearing on the finished product, as direct translations would obviously not have rhymed.
And the music? Good rock 'n' roll with strings & horns!
Reminds me of Bob Ezrin's early work with the Alice Cooper Band.

Dear Mr.Lizardson,
Cay you re-up Davy Graham's "Large As Life and Twice As Natural" & "Midnight Man" please...

Million thanks before!

Oh, I have a little suggestion for your amazing blog. Try sharebee.com or massmirror.com to upload file, they'll up to other multiple great hosting site like zshare, sendspace or mediafire. That will help a lot people avoid the stupid rapidshare's download limit, also I think the file will be available in a longer time.

Cheers!

Don't go, Titus! Lizardson wouldn't post your stuff if he didn't like it and it is his blog. I am a huge folk fan, but I also like to see what occasional wonders you're going to come up with. It's all music, after all. Keep smiling! :-)
