Improved Sound Limited is a German krautrock group formed in 1961. The band started at Willstätter School in Nuremberg with the name "Pyjamas Skiffle Group". From 1964 to 1966, they changed their name to "Blizzards" and backed pop singer Roy Black at 33 shows. The name "Improved Sound Limited" appears at 1966 and remains, except for a brief period during 1976 when CBS advised them to change to the name "Condor". The band specialized in making soundtracks for German television series and for the films from the directors Michael Verhoeven and Wim Wenders. Properly speaking, Bernd Linstädt wasn't a musician of the group, but he wrote all the lyrics and had a real impact on the band. This CD for traveling, for journeys through the wide, open country. Cues for films by Wim Wenders and Erwin Keusch, specifically: "Kings of the Road", "The Baker's Bread" and "As Far As The Eye Can See". The music was chosen by the band for long trips, the "band's cut" if you will, marked by lots of melancholy, power and the knowledge that even in music, to quote a German proverb, "the journey is the goal".
