Mocambo is proud to present the official 45 release of the holy grail of European rare grooves. With arguably the funkiest vocal delivery in German language and its killer 60-second wahwah-ladden drumbreak, Su Kramer's "Weisser Sand" has gained legendary status among DJs and deep funk collectors.
Recorded for the pop-opera TRIP by Austrian television in Vienna in 1971, the song appeared in a dance-scene in the very musical-like TV film about a hippie guru. German label Telefunken released a promotional record of the soundtrack in very limited numbers for radio and TV stations only. The song has since appeared on several bootlegs and compilations, using a mediocre recording off a vinyl copy and overcompressed CD mastering.
For this release, all songs were taken from best analogue source possible and carefully remastered by Michael Schütz to represent the sound of the original master in full dynamics on superior 45 format. Included on this release is the original version of "Weisser Sand", the never-heard-before alternative version, and the semi-instrumental "Sexsong", from the TRIP soundtrack. The 7inch-single release comes with a replique print of the original album artwork.
