Their ninth studio album shows Poor Genetic Material, considered by many as Germany's best art- and progrock band, at the peak of their creative powers. Absence - the experience and feeling of lacking something. People or ways of life that we have got used to, that gave us comfort and security, that have left their mark on us and shaped our character. Yet, many of them have turned to hardly more than faint memories. That may be so simply because we have changed. Or because whatever or whoever these feelings were attached to is now - for various reasons - beyond our reach. This experience is the central topic of Poor Genetic Material’s ninth studio album.
Two iconic 80s soul albums from the late, great CARL ANDERSON finally debut on CD. Both albums represent pure quality from the era with Absence With Out Love featuring one of soul musics signature tracks from the era, Buttercup, written by STEVIE WONDER. The title track also features a rare cameo appearance by another soul superstar, TEENA MARIE. Musicians on both these albums are a who's who from the period's top players including Freddy Washington on bass, Paul Jackson on guitar, the Seawind horns, Sonny Burke on keys and the John Barnes among the provider of lavish strings. The songwritinjg is exceptional and these two albums feature much of Carl's best work, including his duet with Vaneese Thomas (On An On), and the 80s boogie dance classic Don't Make Me Wait.
