Upstairs – It’s Hard To Get In The Showbiz (1980)



Superb copy. Super clean, very carefully used, strong EXCELLENT condition. Many others would call it MINT! The cover looks also great with some minor signs of age. Contains the insert with some light discoloration and faded spots. The cover image is a generic image and has nothing to do with the actual offering.

It’s Hard To Get In The Showbiz

Tonstudio Bieber – TSB 503/80

Upstairs, a band from Frankfurt, Germany was active from 1977 to 1983. Though considering themselves mainly a rock group, the band incorporated elements of funk, jazz rock and disco into their music. On their rare and privately released debut album IT’S HARD TO GET IN THE SHOWBIZ from 1980 they created something that could be called Germany’s definite answer to AOR, yet still with an edgy and unique krautrock flavor.
