Thank you, Nick.

...and some translations of the track titles:
Raum-Und Zeitpfleger(in) > in Germany one says Raumpfleger(in) for a cleaning lady - and Raum is room (space) and Zeit is time.

Tink-Dur > is a joke with tincture (Tinktur) and Dur is major (as in musics).

Lokale Beliebtheit > local popularity (could also mean most beloved local person...)

the rest seems to be selfexplanatory except Übermut which means high spirits but also mischief or presumption.

...and Bain Marie - don't know, Marie is of course a name and Bain sounds like Bein < leg.

A wonderful record. I bought a vinyl copy about a year ago. Anyone waivering should go for this one. Thanks for posting.

Nick - many thanks, quite delighted. As a vinyl rip, this is Professionally clean without sounding doctored.
Listening very recently to Goose Pannée - this is just as good: - I love Irene's percussion and Rudiger's concertina here tool!

Thanks also onxidlib for the trans-lingual explication. If I may offer something back - a bain-marie is an apparatus for keeping food warm. As seen in fast-food places, airports etc

Thanks Serviceton

As a reminder, although I am preaching to the converted on this site, there are d'accord on Sven-Åke Johansson's site

and Zwei Quintette, Tuned Boots and King Alcohol at Destination Out

all worth a listen
