Schneeball present a reissue of Embryo's La Blama Sparozzi, originally released in 1982. Remastered, new artwork (gatefold cover instead of cardboard box packaging). Schneeball Records, founded in 1976, has had a lasting impact on music in Germany with its records for at least a decade. In 1981, Embryo's La Blama Sparozzi was created: A milestone in Embryo's new concept after the huge success of Embryo's Reise which brought the band cult status in the alternative scene. However, the success led to serious ideological disputes among the musicians: what is the value of success in relation to joy in playing and creativity? These internal differences then led to the separation of the Dissidenten. On top of that, it was also an artistic frontal attack on the former colleagues and a radical departure from trend thinking in line with the market. In retrospect, since this point in time at the latest, one can speak of a development towards "Weltmusik with Munich touch" (World music with Munich touch), which many musicians still orientate themselves on and refer to in their work. Another prerequisite for success is compositional work based on joint improvisation. La Blama Sparozzi can convey that: even taking on a connecting role between artists from different continents becomes possible and is one of the most exciting documents on this double-LP. Just as no concert should be the same, this album draws on diversity. Listening habits can be changed, horizons broadened, prejudices reduced: this was the pedagogical approach of the restless composer and band leader Christian Burchard, who traveled to three continents in just a few years with constantly changing line-ups.
