German sexploitation soundtrack music from the 1960s and 1970s as scored by softcore sound-specialist Gert Wilden & His Orchestra. Schulmädchen Report (Schoolgirl Report), and its many sequels were exported, badly dubbed, and run to death. Wilden's music is a wonderfully demented pastiche that takes its inspiration from all kinds of sources -- "Dirty Beat"' swipes from Led Zeppelin, but chucks in bits of acid rock, crazed Farfisa organ, and drum-work that sounds like tap-dancing piledrivers. Other cuts teeter on the edge of pure lounge -- there's bits of smoky jazz, R&B, crazily-mangled surf music, whatever else can be jammed in and will stick. One moment it's lolling saxophone, and the next it's James Last on amphetamines. It all fits, it's often hilarious, and it is absolutely worth keeping on hand. The album producers have also provided multiple liner notes that explain the background of the films, provide biographical information about Gert Wilden, and have a little fun with the audience.
