Edition Hawara present a reissue of Robert Ponger's self-titled album, originally released in 1979. Robert Ponger is perhaps best known as the producer for Austria's biggest pop sensation Falco. His unparalleled production skills are on full display in the iconic hit single "Der Kommissar", and he is also the main man behind Falco's legendary early albums Einzelhaft and Junge Römer. But Ponger deserves at least as much credit for his solo recordings. The most sought-after of these is Ponger's 1979 self-titled LP. The album contains twelve disco-inspired pieces that are unabashedly playful, but also signal serious musical knowledge and finesse. Recorded in the vicinity of Mistelbach, a village even locals struggle to find on a map, Ponger's LP breathes the vibe of Studio 54 -- with the little special extra that only Mistelbach can add. A true Austrian classic.
