Hi Alanabit

So glad to come across someone who knows about BAP! I have a tape "Fur Usszeschnigge" which was sent to me in 1981 when I was back in London doing finals. It has Jeraaduss and Jupp, also the wonderful Verdamp lang her and Musli Man. I think the album "Vun drinne noh drusse" came later. I saw the band live in 1978 at the Loreleifelsen, when I don't think they had recorded at all. I learned the songs from transcriptions, helped by a fellow student who was a Koln native.

When walking on the Isle of Skye a couple of years ago I met someone who had been involved in the production of their early recordings but who now lives in a croft and his heavily into Hebridean music.
