Synopsis

Product Description
'I want to make people throw their shoes and underpants in the air out of sheer delight, make them totally lose their inhibitions', Guru Guru band leader Mani Neumeier announced in an interview with the music magazine, SOUNDS, marking the release of the studio album, Tango Fango, in summer 1976. 'It would be perfect if we could really make them freak out. I used to want to be a revolutionary or whatever, but today all I want to be is a good entertainer.' An aim which Neumeier achieved impressively on Tango Fango, pleasing fans and media alike: the album sales soared, and the magazine, MUSIKEXPRESS, declared Tango Fango 'one of the best German records ever'.

Guru Guru is one of the essential german rock bands feat. Mani Neumeier. This is the legendary album, Tango Fango, remastered by Eroc. In a new Digipack format, this edition includes liner notes.

Hot album - Hot band!
J. Mauk | DeLand, FL USA | 03/22/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Tango Fango" (1976). I have waited years for this to come out on CD. This is what was called in the 70's ACID JAZZ. This guys jam hard with jazz- rock -fusion. I have been a drummer since 1974 and Mani Neumeier is one of the best drummers ever-period! This talented band in all of it's different line-ups has always entertained for 30+years. They are still making new music today. Exellent guitar players throughout their history including Sepp Jandrisis and Ax Gernrich. Multi-talented Roland Schaeffer plays a mean soprano sax on this CD. Great guitar riffs and even a great pop-type song "Tomorrow" with some of the best vocals they ever recorded. They have loads of fun in the studio, and no other band in the world sounds like them. Check this CD out, and earlier ones for much heavier jams.

Guru Guru goes Latin Dance - Jazz
silbertanne4 | Offenbach | 10/14/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Diese Platte ist meiner Meinung ein Highlight des Kraut-Rock der 70-er Jahre. Wenn der deutsche Rock sich selbst sehr seriös und intellektuell in ellenlangen Rezensionen in Zeitschriften artikulierte, ... Eine Gruppe war da ganz anders, sie war talentiert, humorvoll und spielte einfach drauf los: Guru Guru, seit Jahrzehnten eine beliebte Pop-Festival Attraktion in Deutschland.Tango Fango ist wie "Guru Guru" kein langes improvisatorisches Werk. "Guru Guru" machte einen melodiösen Ausflug ind den Hard/Rock & Rock`n Roll, "Tango Fango" bietet kurze, ins Ohr gehende Stücke die an lateinamerikanische, karibische Musik und Jazz erinnern. Tanzbar, unaufdringlich, immer dominiert Mani Neumaiers polyrhytmische Schlagzeug-Kunst. Funkelnde schimmernde Keyboard Klänge und ein Saxophon veredeln das Werk.Am Ende noch ein Schmanker: "Das lebendige Radio" ist eine humoristische fiktive "Radioshow" mit Volksmusik. So schräg aber auch seriös präsentiert (man glaubt zuerst, wirklich ein konventionelles Radioprogramm eingeschaltet zu haben), erst bei "Kaiserjodler" und "Schnaderlhupferl" merkt man, daß etwas nicht stimmt, man offenbar veräppelt wird. Man kann sich über die letzten 10 Minuten wirklich kranklachen. Ein Must-Buy für Freunde des Kraut Rocks, Latin-Jazz und Humor.

Guru Guru - 'Tango Fango' (Repertoire)
Mike Reed | USA | 07/20/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Originally released in 1976,this certainly isn't THE Guru Guru that I've become so very fond of from their earlier lp's,like 'UFO','Hinten' and 'Kan Guru'. This is WAY more instrumental jazz/rock that's fused with experimental weirdness. It's well-written and well played,I'll give it that much.Best tracks were "Tomorrow",the title cut "Tango Fango" and "Banana Flip".Line-up:Mani Neumeier-drums&keyboards,Sepp Goldschmidt-guitar,Roland Schaeffer(of Brainstorm)-synthesizer&guitar and Jogi Karpentiel-bass.Fans of '70's progressive and Latin jazz would obviously probably get more out of this CD reissue than I did."
