Tanned Leather - 6 albums



This was a music project based in Munich and led by RAINER PIETSCH. “Child Of Never Ending Love” (1972) was an ambitious adult oriented soft-rock album that came in a fold-out cover with a cute drawing of angelic small children - as good as the artwork used on the British Harvest label! TANNED LEATHER indeed comprised three Germans and three Englishmen. The album is of average quality and not exactly progressive rock! Their second album “Saddle Soap” (1976) is even less exciting, I'm afraid. It contained country-flavoured rock with few interesting moments. The group was now reduced to a vocal quartet. The list of renowned studio musicians participating on it was almost endless. Here are some of them: PAUL VINCENT (guitar), KEITH FORSEY (drums), THOR BALDURSSON (keyboards), ANDY MARX (guitar), KLAUS WEISS (percussion), DAVE KING (bass), KARL ALLAUT (guitar) and STEFAN WISSNET (bass). On most tracks brass, strings and a symphony orchestra was added too. [Dag Erik Asbjørnsen, Cosmic Dreams At Play, 1996] It would seem as if TANNED LEATHER were a deliberate attempt to emulate the softer folky acts on British Harvest. In fact, TANNED LEATHER did sound English. Their music was soft and lyrical, with a few stand-out tracks on their debut, but they were similarly patchy like their British counterparts Forest or Battered Ornaments. In between their two albums, ANDY MARX worked with the band Cherubin, and also worked as a soloist. The reformation album “Saddle Soap” was vastly inferior to the earlier album. [Steven & Alan Freeman, The Crack In The Cosmic Egg, 1996]
