Urs Blöchlinger - Just The One - Plainisphare 1993 or 1994

I don’t know if this cd have been really distributed. Obviously it have been released by the label Plainisphare that had a good distribution but this record is referenced nowhere and the only occurrence that can be found on the internet about it is this article by Jon Corbet, nothing else.

The packaging seems also more like a promotional one than a commercial one. The cd is inside a transparent slim case and part of the informations is written on the case, part on the disc. There is no recording date but in relations with the informations that I have about the artist, I think that this have been recorded in late 1993, early 1994. At this time urs Blöchlinger was playing with the band No Secrets In The Family and the drummer of this band, Martin Gantenbein is the producer of this enigmatic cd.

Many thanks for this quite rare Blöchlinger CD!!

I did some research as well and found that the you have the proper CD. According a pdf I've found at the www it was produced the way you describe it.
All in German > https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=15&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjNiseG_qXbAhXiIJoKHfvLABsQFghmMA4&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.e-periodica.ch%2Fcntmng%3Fpid%3Dhoc-001%3A1994%3A7%3A%3A1058&usg=AOvVaw1oXAq_-anNkaZhoSKl8ftI
And on Martin Gantenbein's website I've found the year of release 1994.

The reason for this kind of CD design was mainly a question of budget on Blöchlinger's side (info to be found with the pdf).

Thank you Ernst for all those informations that I will check, any more informations about urs Blöchlinger is welcome. For those like me who want to get almost all the records where he have played, some have been published by Unit Records and are quite hard to find on cd but available on Itunes. he have been side man for Martin Schlumpf's Bermuda Vierek, Sei-Lieb, Legfek.

The info at discogs was added by myself after I got correct silence's rip....
Some of the data were culled/confirmed from Martin Gantenbein's website plus the wwebsite of the CD's designer.

I was almost sure that you were the creator of the discogs page Ernst, just before my post this album was not featured on Blochlinger's discography.

Ernst Grgo Nebhuth said...
