In Germany and the rest of Europe Atlantis' third studio set was released with the title "Ooh Baby" in 1974. Produced by Dieter Dierks the collection was released in the wake of another set of personnel changes including the addition of the English keyboardist Adrian Askew and former Curly Curve lead guitarist Alexander Conti. With Askew and Conti assuming responsibility for the majority of writing duties (Rumpf contributed four tracks), the album found the band pursuing a mixture of German soul (yes it is a genre that exists) and conventional AOR. Propelled by Rumpf's surprisingly funky accented voice, tracks like 'Mr. Bigshot (You Get the Credit)' and 'Smiling People' were more than a match for their Anglo-American competitors. In an effort to break the band in the States the band toured the US opening for Lynyrd Skynyrd. The tour did little for sales, but saw Conti fired (he reappeared with Lake). popsike.com
Within the first year of babies' lives, their motor skills begin to kick into high gear as they explore ways to physically interact with the world around them. Baby's First Moves is a playful celebration of their movement milestones – including first steps, clapping, jumping, dancing, and more – that invites parents and little ones to share in these fun-filled experiences together and discover how movement enriches physical strength, builds self-confidence, and encourages natural curiosity. You and your baby will want to join in at home as happy babies show off their best moves accompanied by delightful puppet shows and real-world images set to the beautiful classical music of Beethoven, Bach, and Mozart.
As babies turn one year old, they continue to develop their communication skills. Meanwhile, with you as their guide, they also begin to explore the world beyond their front door. Baby's Favorite Places presents them with a playful introduction to 20 words for the names of familiar locations – from the market, to the library, to the local park. First, the written word is shown alongside an image of the featured place or object and the word is said aloud. Then, there's a demonstration of how to express the word through sign language. Finally, delightful puppet shows and real-world images set to beautiful classical music by Mozart encourage you and your little one to join in the fun. It’s a great way to interact with your child on a whole new level while you embark on this adventure of discovery together!
