Very little info about Opus other than the fact that it is an Austrian band formed in Graz in 1973 and originally composed of Herwig Rüdisser, Ewald Pfleger, Kurt-Rene Plisnier and Günter Grasmuck.
Group which will remain mainly in the musical history of the Eighties for the enormous title "Live is life" released in 1985. Single which will be a real hit on a planetary level that year.
As such alone, he deserved this article.
To discover or rediscover.
Discography (among others ...) :
Flyin’ high 1982
Live is life 1985
Faster and faster 1988
Gimme love 1992
1982 ... a direct start in Intimist mode, an extremely rare thing. And for a first title, the least we can say is that it is rather successful
1985 ... then THIS title comes ! It took them 3 years to produce it but the result will far exceed anything they could have imagined. The group signs here quite simply the title of their life but especially one of the biggest dance hits of the decade. MAS-TER-FUL !
1987 ... the group will have produced few titles but like most German groups, the quality level will always have been high, it is clear
1988 ... few titles on the clock and several notorious breaks between each title. The main thing, as they say, is quality. Quantity is something else ...
1992 ... the group will try the adventure decade 90 but unfortunately without success. The group will go down in the musical history of the 80s for one title, but what a title !
