Pictures 04:35
Pictures It was early in the morning Probably around 5 o’clock The colonel shouted through the camp We had to get up There was no way out, we had to get dressed It was still a dark night Rain was falling down constantly But we had to get up and fight Oh, have you seen What it takes to be All these pictures in my mind Oh, please take me away Today Away We jumped on that dingo car Left the camp without light I was thinking about home My, son, my daughter, my wife We passed by a little village Kids were walking to school The were singing, laughing, playing around And then a flash, a thunder sounded loud Oh, have you seen What it takes to be All these pictures in my mind Oh, please take me away Today Away I hurt my back and my leg They put me on a plane You came down to the hospital I could see your tears and your pain Our kids were with you But you left them outside I said sorry but I couldn’t help Ever since there’s the pain Oh, have you seen What it takes to be All these pictures in my mind Oh, please take me away Today Away

about

After two powerful rock records, I got the idea for an acoustic album. Because I wanted to focus on the lyrics, on the stories of the songs. I wanted to keep it simple, clear and not so loud with just guitars, piano, drums and a bass but I couldn‘t stop myself and then put a lot of more stuff on. Now we have songs with a violin, a flute, a glockenspiel, an accordion and a lot of other small acoustic instruments. However, an electric guitar and drum-machines are used as well. This is why the album is called „The Acoustic Walk—pimped and tuned“. But still it has got these acoustic features.

The included “Acoustic Session Tapes“ are the recordings of Michael and me on a cold and windy Saturday. Just two guitars and our voices. As simple as that. These are songs from the previous records “Bremen-Adelaide” and “Rumble in The Jungle”.

I‘d like to thank the band in the name of Jens Anderstein, Tobias Tietjen and Mighty Michael for their inspiration and ideas. Especially I would like to thank Michael who actually co-produced this album.

And many thanks to everybody who supports my music. And of course to my wife who tries to cope with the loudness in our house.

Best regards M
