“Here is your complete home discotheque on one long playing record.“
Jo Ment was the show-biz name of Jochen Ment, a German musician who followed in the wake of the popular Bert Kaempfert and James Last albums of the sixties. This album contains segued tracks with crowd applause and shouts presumably to generate a party atmosphere as you listen to it. Jo Ment’s Happy Sound! The cover seems at odds with this featuring as it does three bendy ladies caught in the middle of a kind of Twister game with not a drink or apparent source of music anywhere to be seen. Unless that’s Jo’s idea of a party atmosphere. “Start dancing – Jo Ment will do the rest” as the sleeve notes say. In that case, fetch me a beer.
