Item Description
Limited edition new issue of this German boogie holy grail!
Only one copy per customer!

When the Growing Bin first bloomed from blog and record store to label it was originally intended to be a reissue imprint. If you’ve kept your ear to the ground and head in the Bin, you’ll know that isn’t exactly how it went down. But for this release we are going back to the scheme a young Basso dreamed up in his adolescent years: bring back the rare, unknown and unfindable.
So here is Mainpoint‘s ‘Alaska Wartet’ - a stunning private pressed 7inch entirely unknown to the world. Its original 1980 press was less than extensive, and the few copies which did appear were sold exclusively at concerts and local record shops – kudos to all twenty people who got a copy! Mainpoint started out as a Jazz-Rock out in 1978 but as the years rolled on, these guys fell for the funk. Finding a 4/4 in a world of syncopation, Mainpoint fell of their elbow-patched pals, being labelled Tanz-Jazz since their audiences actually danced (in contrast to the serious silence of their contemporaries’ concerts).
‘Alaska Wartet’ made it from Side 2 on the 1980 press to Side 1. This incredibly tight Boogie jam bounds out the speakers with a synth line from heaven and fusion moves galore – it’s sure to put a smile on dancers faces worldwide.
‘Frisbee’ is the flipside, inviting dancers to forget about gravity and go for broke. Soaring skywards from this uplifting masterpiece is perfectly topped by that screwdriver hook sung by Ika Hussmann!
Time for some Tanz-Jazz, folks!
