Boney M (1975)

El primer disco que contiene el nombre de Boney M. aparece en las tiendas de Alemania en la primavera de 1975. La portada no tiene ninguna foto del grupo que conocemos sino la bandera americana (barras y estrellas) con una chica que baila. "Baby Do You Wanna Bump" se titula la canción.

En la primavera de 1976 se completa el primer álbum de Boney M. : TAKE THE HEAT OFF ME. El primer single es "Daddy Cool" - un disco sensacional con su ritmo disco, un sonido original. Con el enorme éxito del primer álbum de Boney M., Farian siente la presión cuando él, Liz y Marcia vuelven al estudio para grabar el próximo disco.

Unos 20 temas son grabados entre los cuales se eligen los 10 mejores para el álbum. El tema de "Ma Baker" es elegido para el primer single. En abril 1978 se presenta el nuevo single de Boney M. - "Rivers Of Babylon". Aunque tiene un ritmo de baile, no es una típica pieza de disco, sino un viejo himno con letras de la Biblia.

Fue un éxito para The Melodians en 1969. Boney M. va a actuar en la película "Disco Fever", la réplica alemana de "Saturday Night Fever" y "Thank God It's Friday".

Y en septiembre sale el cuarto álbum "Oceans Of Fantasy" con una portada espléndida que se puede desplegar en un gran póster.

El álbum abre con el tema "Let It All Be Music" (Deja que todo sea música)...

Letra: Rasputin de Boney M
There lived a certain man in Russia long ago.
He was big and strong, in his eyes a flaming glow.
Most people looked at him with terror and with fear.
But to Moscow chicks he was such a lovely dear.
He could preach the Bible like a preacher.
Full of ecstacy and fire. But he also was the kind of teacher.
Women would desire.

RA RA RASPUTINLover of the Russian queen.
There was a cat that really was gone
RA RA RASPUTINRussia's greatest love machine.
It was a shame how he carried on.

He ruled the Russian land and never mind the czar.
But the kasachok he danced really wunderbar.
In all affairs of state he was the man to please.
But he was real great when he had a girl to squeeze.
For the queen he was no wheeler dealer.
Though she'd heard the things he'd done.
She believed he was a holy healer.
Who would heal her son.

RA RA RASPUTINLover of the Russian queen
There was a cat that really was gone
RA RA RASPUTINRussia's greatest love machine
It was a shame how he carried on.

(Spoken:)But when his drinking and lusting and his hungerfor
power became known to more and more people.
The demands to do something about this outrageousman became louder and louder.

"This man's just got to go!" declared his enemies,
But the ladies begged "Don't you try to do it, please
"No doubt this Rasputin had lots of hidden charms,
Though he was a brute they just fell into his arms.
Then one night some men of higher standing,
Set a trap, they're not to blame.
"Come to visit us" they kept demanding, And he really came.

RA RA RASPUTIN Lover of the Russian queen.
They put some poison into his wine.
RA RA RASPUTIN Russia's greatest love machine.
He drank it all and said "I feel fine".
RA RA RASPUTIN Lover of the Russian queen.
They didn't quit, they wanted his head
RA RA RASPUTIN Russia's greatest love machine.
And so they shot him till he was dead(Spoken:) Oh, those Russians...
