The People: Nature's Melody

1. Product Details

In 1969, two years after the group was founded, a 7-inch single EP with four folk songs was released, by then under the name 'The People'. With Woodstock and the changes in folk and rock music in the early 1970s, bandleader Bernd Heyder dissolved the band. A few years later he founded 'People', whose sound was now based on artists such as Crosby, Stills and Nash and Neil Young. After many frenetically celebrated live performances, the desire to record a full length album arose at the end of the 1970s. In 1981 the time had come and 'Misty Mood' was released on a small, local label called 'Ohrwurm Records'. Just one year later the band released their second album titled 'Easy Going'. Their third and final album, which exclusively contains songs with German lyrics, was released on CBS Records in 1983. CBS wanted to sign Bernd Heyder as a solo artist, but he politely declined. When the hoped-for success failed to materialize, CBS prematurely terminated the band's contract. In 1984, 'People' disbanded. With the stunning LP release 'Natures Melody', Tramp Records honors Aschaffenburg's 'People' after almost 45 years. The reason why no one has really taken an interest in them so far may be because the original Vinyl records are anything but rare. For the 'people' behind Tramp Records, this is absolutely insignificant, it's simply the music what counts. And the songs are so extraordinary that we are proud to set up a special monument to the band with this album. This 40-minute, 9-song album collects the best cuts from their two English-language albums 'Misty Mood' and 'Easy Going'. Tracklisting: A1. Expression of Feeling (3:11) A2. Upside Down (3:57) A3. Like A Ship On The Water (5:13) A4. Out On The Road (7:42) B1. Tears Take It Away (4:27) B2. Natures Melody (2:55) B3. Letter For Rubina (6:33) B4. Linda (3:33) B5. Sunrise (3:15)
