"I just rediscovered Patrick Gammon who did one of my favorite funk/soul albums of 1979: Don't Touch Me. As far as I remember, it was the first (and probably only) German production ever released by the Motown label (catalog number M 922)."Don't Touch Me" was recorded in Munich/Germany between October 1978 and January 1979. It included a great group of musicians many of whom were part of the munich disco scene (Giorgo Moroder) as Curt Cress and Reggie Worthy (Check my entry with Mick Jackson for more about "Munich Sound"):

"After about a year of chilling and getting his head back together, Reggie started getting busy again. Making use of some of the connections he had made while in Europe, he began flying to Munich doing studio work for people. The piano player Patrick Gammon from Seattle, Washington, who had also played with Ike and Tina was now living in Munich. Patrick and his manager, Gerhard Augustin, invited Reggie over to play and record with him. Reggie also met German guitar player Frank Diez. Frank was producing singer Jackie Carter, and hired Reggie to play the bass. He also met drummer Curt Cress while working on the Gammon LP “Don’t Touch Me”. They played well together and Curt asked Reggie to join his band Snowball. This was in the late 1970’s and Reggie was still living in L.A.. He would fly back and forth from there to do these jobs. "

"80´s are back!Besides "PATTO" (together with Patrick Gammon) and "TMF" (with Joe Esposito), "VALET PARKING" is another pseudonym Thomas Fuchsberger used for an English music-project.10 genuine 80´s songs are on "Valet Parking"´s longplay-CD of the same name."

"Valet Parking is the project of German maestro Thomas Fuchsberger. This one came out in 1988, and is a super-smooth slice of AOR. In fact, it is so smooth that a comparison to an aural version of cappucino is what you get with Valet Parking."If the car on the front cover is enough to go by, then a mix of super smooth and hi-tech/high class is an apt description. Musically, take a dab of Zappacosta, Toto, and Euro/UK bands like Go West, A-Ha and fellow German West CoasterBeau Heart and the end result is something like this. It is very radio friendly, but has less reliance of cutting edge electric guitars, preferring instead to let other instruments like keyboards and saxophone come to the surface.

The Songs
The main musician of note outside of Fuchsberger is guitarist Robby Musenbichler, who has had stints with the bands Tokyo and Toto clones Jojo. His influence is not as obvious on Valet Parking as the arrangements are very laid back with little in the way of fiery guitar solos. The stand out tracks for me are the opener 'See You At Spago', the excellent 'Mr Dark', and the very Go West flavored 'Bad Girl'. Plenty of parpy keyboards can be heard on 'The Right People At The Right Time', while the only evidence of a guitar solo can be heard on the upbeat and pumping 'Let Me Out'. For once Musenbichler gets to let rip though it is only fleeting. Mostly, the laid back arrangements and smooth musicianship prevail. Tailor-made late night listening for sure, in tandem with your cappucino!

In Summary
Valet Parking is a definite studio outing, as not much has been heard outside of this, though Thomas does have a website (see below). Occasionally you'll see this on E-Bay going for very high prices. Valet Parking is good for what it is but one would hardly call it classic AOR. This one has been on the list of Collectors for ages, I shouldn't think that will have changed after having listened to it myself. Pleasant enough listening though, perhaps a tad over-produced, and a true 80's album if ever there was one with many of these songs ideal candidates for 80's MTV at least.
