[Machine Translation] The band was formed in 1970 with Erock (dr.), who is currently active as a producer/engineer, at the center, and broke up in the late 80's, but was revived in the late 2000's. The band represents the German symphonic rock of the 70's ( Globuschnitt ). This is the first reissue in 2022 with the latest remastering and the world's first paper-jacketed CD! This album was released in 1979 and was the original concept work as well as the first two albums. The theme of this cynical concept album is "Amusement Park = Ideal World", and the titles of the songs on the album suggest the problems of the society behind the ideal world. The band's unique humor, which is evident throughout the album, is skillfully fused with the symphonic rock style of the '75 album and beyond to create a colorful and dramatic sound world. The album includes four additional bonus tracks from live performances in 1978-79 and a session remix of "Merry Go Round". This is the world's first paper-jacketed CD release that recreates the original recordings as closely as possible, and will be digitally remastered in 2022.

Description in Japanese

メリー・ゴー・ラウンド / グローブシュニット

現在はプロデューサー/エンジニアとして活躍するエロック(dr.)を中心に'70年結成、80年代末期に解散するも2000年代後期に復活した70年代ジャーマン・シンフォニック・ロックを代表するバンド「グローブシュニット」の独ブレインより'72年デビュー作から'79年作までの6作品が一挙2022年最新リマスター/世界初紙ジャケット仕様CDで復刻! 本作は、前2作同様、オリジナル・コンセプト作となった1979年発表作。"遊園地=理想郷"をテーマに、収録曲のタイトルからもうかがえる"理想郷の裏に潜む社会の問題点"を描いたシニカルなコンセプト作。全編で発揮されるこのバンドらしい独自の諧謔性と、'75年作以降のシンフォニック・ロック路線を巧みに融合させたカラフルかつドラマティックな音世界が味わえる1作です。ボーナスに78~79年のライヴから4曲と「メリー・ゴー・ラウンド」のセッション・リミックスを追加収録。オリジナルレコードを可能な限り再現した世界初紙ジャケットCD化、2022年デジタルリマスター。

      POP BEGINS HERE... 3

      this was released in 1979 and this was when GROBSCNITT seemed to move to a more pop sound, in fact there are elements of this disc that remind me a little bit of ABBA... THE GREAT HEAVY, GERMAN KRAUTROCK SOUND WAS GONE with this record MERRY GO ROUND so this is where i JUMP OFF THE MERRY GO ROUND regarding GROBSCNITT, i loved all the records from 1972 up to the live album in 1978, with this release in 1979 it almost sounds like a whole new band... regardless the disc sounds amazing, the mini lp replication sounds fantastic!!!!! and is as well done as all the others i reviewed in this series....
