Kamasutra - Vollendung Der Liebe (Original Soundtrack Recording)
Better late than never? A good four decades after its making, a rare gem is up for release: the soundtrack to Kobi Jaegers erotic and educational epic KAMASUTRA consummation of love composed and recorded by Irmin Schmidt & The Inner Space. A precursor to krautrock pioneers CAN, Schmidts 1968 recording assembles Cans original line-up Michael Karoli, Jaki Liebezeit and Malcolm Mooney who later went on to craft the bands seminal debut, Monster Movie.
The film KAMASUTRA consummation of love switches between India and Germany and stars Bruno Dietrich and Barbara Schöne. A prime example of late 1960s German erotica and the so-called sexual revolution, it liberated the subject of sex from dingy red light cinemas and whisked it away to the exotic Far East, to the realm that more than a millennium earlier had spawned the erotic teachings of the KAMASUTRA. Fast-forward to the present day and you will find the films well-intentioned, in parts pedagogical approach bristling with (un)intentional comedy.
