From "The KS Circle" # 4 ... (Nostalgic recollection, pt. 16)

. . . . American David M. C., MD, wrote me some nice memories from the early 70s: »There was almost no recognition of "Electronic Music" in the US press, at the time of its beginnings. The only source for information were album covers and word of mouth from other record buyers. The record store employees did not know where to stock the albums. Most simply filed them with the rest of the "Imports". A few had an "Electronic Music" section, which also contained the experiments of the university Electronic Music Ensembles. These albums were mostly dreadful, and confused the record buying public. I purchased Moondawn during the summer of '76 because I liked the album cover. In the years that followed it was rare to find an album review, or find an article about KS. I have waited almost twenty years for The KS Circle, and it is outstanding.«
. . . . (Thanks for mentioning the Moondawn cover. It was my very first try in doing covers. -kdm)

Er weiß, er ist ein Bär.

Daily living isn't always fair.
Also not for our bear.

Zum Supermarkt geht er ungerne,
solch Einkauf bringt gar manch Verdruss.
Dort gibt's heut 'Punkte', 'Herzen', 'Sterne';
dafür verschwunden: Negerkuss.
