  1. What a mastery those guys have ! It's a true eye-opener for me as I mostly knew Boulou Ferré in the gypsy or classic/contemporary styles. Here, he plays beautifully and with an impressive confidence especially considering his age, and lays a perfect "background" for Gunther Hampel to throw his lyrical and boosted lines, but not only : his single lines mixed with arpeggios and rhythm parts are perfectly fluent.

    Thank you very much for this unexpected gem !

  2. Greetings. Many thanks for "Espace". Back in the late '70s and '80s when Hampel's LPs were available in local record shops I bought everything that came in. Except for this one. I just was not interested in acoustic guitar back then so I passed on it a number of times. Not today! I look forward to finally hearing it. Do you have any other of his recordings - I have everything else you have posted - such as:

    -Gunter Hampel & Jeanne Lee [on Wergo Records, 1968]
    -Ruomi [Birth Records, 1974]
    -Transformation [Birth Records, 1976]
    -Cavana [Birth Records, 1981]
    -Generator [Birth Records, 1981]

    There are so many, virtually anything would be most welcome. Thanks for your work to make all this music available. Be assured, it IS appreciated.

  3. Hi Brian,

    I am happy that Espace is loved.

    I have no more Gunter Hampel works than uploaded on this blog. So, if you upload the listed up his works on this blog, I will much appreciate it.

  4. Unfortunately I have no turntable [a roomful of LPs but no turntable?!] so I'm not able to provide any uploads. Sorry.
