This revolutionary psychedelic album features piano, keyboards, electronic percussion and other electronic sounds, an esoteric, Buddhist vocal sound, with bits of concrète, tape and delay effects.

Wolfgang Riechmann started his musical career in 1966. After playing in a school band with Michael Rother and Wolfgang Flür, later famous with Kraftwerk and Neu, he then became member of an other Düsseldorf (Germany) located band called "Streetmark". It was end of 1977 when Riechmann started working on his solo career. The result was the LP "Wunderbar" which was released on SKY Records. Unfortunately he did not experience the release. In August 1978 Riechmann was killed - without any reason - by two drunk guys, who stabbed him to death.

Eroc (Joachim Heinz Ehrig) started his solo career in 1975 while he was currently the drummer of Grobschnitt. His self titled album can be considered as a cross between Gorbschnitt's typical symphonic amazing music and electronic/ synthscapes dominated by numerous original sound manipulations. Despite that he was originally recognised as a drummer, here Eroc is the man behind the machines, controlling solid essays in synth experimentations and electronic collages. His first album is an absolute must in Kraut/ electronic genre, very abstract, emotional and a mix of different moods. This album is an opponent worthy of Klaus Schulze's first realisations in space/ "kosmische" electronic music. His following album ("Zwei" published by "Brain" in 1976) continues to process by a combination between rock and electronic but focused on short, efficient sketches…

Recorded in 1976 - after Brian Eno had proclaimed them one of the best groups around - but for whatever reason not released until 20 years later, Tracks & Traces is a fascinating release not merely for Eno's participation but for the hints of music that would become mainstream in the future. Indeed, opening cut "Vamos Companeros" has an intense guitar line from Rother that in its nervous, choppy way suggests everything from Wire to Bauhaus, not to mention Eno's own noted production clients, U2. Having already created two excellent albums, the core Harmonia trio was easily placed to whip up a third, with Eno the wild-card factor who turned out to be a perfect addition. While contributing some lyrics and singing at a time when he was steering away firmly from both in his own solo work, most of the time Eno lets the band speak for itself musically, most notably adding snaky, quietly threatening basslines…

The fist ever Brainticket box set featuring 4 discs of these krautrock genius’s critically adored early ‘70s albums plus rare singles and live recordings, some of which have never been available on the commercial market - until now!
This box set on Cleopatra's Purple Pyramid imprint assembles their first three studio recordings (leaving out the early-'80s Voyage and Adventure) - in a sense, since it splits part of them up on the latter half of disc three. Brainticket's bona fide hippie classic, Cottonwoodhill from 1971, is here in its entirety, paired with a disc from a Vandroogenbroeck side project called Drum Circus and the album Magic Theater from the same period, which juxtaposed his organ, piano, flute, and sitar in the company of three drummers, two vocalists, a bassist, and a saxophonist…

Psychonaut (1972). Formed in 1968 by Belgian born keyboard player Joel Vandroogenbroeck, the band released their debut album, the extreme psychedelic Cottonwoodhill in Germany in 1971. Breaking apart soon after, Vandroogenbroeck formed a new incarnation of the group with drummer Barney Palm comprising Swiss and Italian musicians. Psychonaut was recorded in Milan in 1972 and was less intense than Cottonwood Hill but was more cohesive and was an impressive Psychedelic rock album, later much sampled by European Trance DJs. Psychonaut is one of the essential albums associated with the German Psych & Prog scene of the early 1970's…

A real dig, discovered only recently. Keyboard-dominated, with Mellotron, flute, and English lyrics. Very good studio recordings. The Wuppertal group - basically a successor band of Cannabis India - existed only from 1974 until 1976. Back then in 1974 they recorded some songs for an LP but did not release it. Which was a shame as it would have been a real asset e. g. on the Brain label. Only in 2014, a man from Berlin came up against it almost by chance and released it as an LP on his Korusuro label. It was received very well by the listeners and was much praised. And now finally the CD edition, drawn from the master tapes. The 32-page booklet contains a detailed band history in German and English, photographs, lyrics, etc.

Panko from West Berlin (not to be confused with the much later East-German band Pankow) musically reminds of Xhol Caravan or the early Embryo. The band mostly played long jazzy instrumental pieces, dominated by flute and alto saxophone, at times interrupted by mainly English vocals and some follies. The band existed from the late sixties 'til the end of 1972. During its active career the group didn't release any material, although they definitelty had much potential. In 1983 their drummer (at last) released the cassette 'Weil Es So Schön Perlt'. This tape featured live recordings of good sound quality, dating from June 1971. Now here's a great CD-edition of that tape, enriched with two bonus tracks.

Paradieswärts Düül Review by Ned Raggett
Surprisingly, the third Amon Düül album wasn't recorded at the jam session which produced the band's other major releases; even more surprisingly, Para Dieswärts sounded next to nothing like the other three. Out went the rough and ready drumming, stomping, and chanting; in went an extremely delicate sense of expansive songwriting, retaining the predilection for length (the shortest of the album's three songs was almost eight minutes long) but otherwise aiming at a new kind of tastefulness.

Sada is the second studio collaboration between Spanish guitarist Ángel Ontalva and beloved Russian space-prog-jazz-psych geniuses Vespero. The two previously broke ground on 2018’s ‘Carta Marina,’ which in turn led to the live album ‘Sea Orm Liventure’ before this latest work. Clearly, they have a good thing going, and they bring out the best in each other. I strongly recommend ALL of these albums. Ontalva and Vespero make a superb combination. Their works - all instrumental - remind me a great deal of Mahavishnu Orchestra. So kindle your inner mounting flame and come along for the ride.

Combining their trademark symphonic-progressive style with drummer and leader Eroc’s twisted, absurdist humor, Grobschnitt was among the most curious groups in Germany’s Krautrock scene. Essentially an extended, concert version of “Solar Music,” the group’s 30-minute plus studio instrumental masterwork from 1974’s Ballerman, Solar Music - Live is a fantastic live document recorded in 1978. Featuring stellar musicianship throughout from Eroc and classically-trained keyboardist Mist (Volker Kahrs), the group’s exhilarating cosmic jamming, spaced-out soloing, and splashy stage show (as evidenced by the pyrotechnics on the cover art) make this one of the essential live documents of the prog rock era.

Founded in Germany during the late 60's, Hairy Chapter is a solid acid-garagey-free rockin band. This is reminiscence to the most marvellous krautrock acts (Amon Düül II, Guru Guru, Agitation Free, My solid Ground…). In 1969 they recorded the obscure Electric Sound for Dancing LP, followed by the catchy heavy-psychedelic called eyes (1970). In 1971 they recorded what is considered to be their most successful album (Can't Get Through). It has been produced by Dieter Dirks (Nektar, Ashra Tempel, Wallenstein, Passport…). The album features a collection of tripped out-blasting bluesy kraut improvs / songs, including some discreet acoustic ethno vibes.

71/17 Another Green Journey – Live at Elbphilharmonie Hamburg” is a musical journey of discovery full of surprises and difficult to assign to a genre. Both the terms “Krautrock” and “Psychedelic Rock” do insufficient justice to the music of Achim Reichel with his solo project “AR & Machines” – the truth probably lies somewhere in between.
