Long Hair

I would basically agree with everything in the review below about this excellent and raw early progressive album, although I don't really think they sound so much like Tull at all - maybe a bit like This Was era, but just a bit. Lots of bonus live...

Hard to believe that this strange rarity was reissued on CD and reissued legitimately, but here it is on the Long Hair label, who do these things well! Sabicas was a famous Spanish flamenco guitarist who lived in the USA for a number of years.

Amazingly enough, over 40 years later, the fifth, NEVER BEFORE RELEASED, STUDIO album, recorded in 1976, by Denmark’s greatest jazz/rock band gets a release.
Like their third album, Vidunerlige Kaelling, this was music done for a dance / performance work.

"The recordings of 'Striptease' were a long time lost. In 1975 Secret Oyster had reached broad acceptance in Danish cultural life and on the music scene. Their 3rd album 'Vidunderlige Kaelling (Astarte)', received massive media attention...

This is the first time ever that this one and done, rockin' German rarity has been legitimately reissued.

Originally released on Phillips in 1971, they are a heavy power trio and they are comparable in some ways to their contemporaries Guru...

Reissue of a very obscure hippy/jam band's only album from 1971. They are most often compared to Quicksilver and the Dead. "Originally released on CBS in 1971, and now for the first time on CD. These 4 guys from Bremen (Northern Germany) played with US...

"When Jim Cregan, Richard Mc Cracken and John Wilson got together in the fall of 1970 to form Stud, British music magazines ought to have hailed the advent of a super group. After all, bassist Mc Cracken and drummer Wilson were the rhythm group of Rory...

"The meeting of three expatriate Hungarian musicians who had been touring with the Hungarian Philharmonic when they jumped ship and stayed in Germany, with three German musicians. An appealing 1973-styled blend of progressive rock with classical, jazzy and folky influences. Lots of classical pretensions and influences, with lots of flute. Vocals, flute, guitars, violin/viola/piano/organ, bass and drums. They shortly afterwards went on to work with Louis Hardin aka Moondog (!), but there doesn't seem to...

First-ever legitimate reissue from mastertapes of Thirsty Moon's third album, originally released on Brain in 1975.

First-ever legitimate reissue from mastertapes of Thirsty Moon's first album, originally released on Brain in 1972.
"Always essentially the project of the Drogies brothers, Thirsty Moon came into being in September 1971 as the amalgamation of D.R.P. (Drogies Rock Project) and Shakespears (apparently a jazz-soul band), resulting in a very big group (seven to eight members) performing complex rock that used unusual jazz structures as its base. Obviously influenced by the likes of Colosseum, the Chicago...

First-ever vinyl reissue, in a great, gatefold sleeve.

"Originally released in 1971 on Philips. This sole album of Hamburg's six piece is a crossover of progressive and jazz rock, notably with influences as wide-ranging as Blodwyn Pig (two covers as bonus tracks) and Curved Air. Long jammings by highly talented musicians, all blending into an unique sound with the distinct spirit of krautrock."

Hans Friedrich Basten - drums, glockenspiel
Heribert Schippers - bass
Manfred Herter - guitars
Franz Brandt – electric piano
Hermann Josef Basten - flute, guitar

This was the one and only album released by this German jazz/rock obscurity during their lifetime. This is the first time it has been reissued and it includes bonus live tracks!

“Progressive rock band from Aachen, Germany circa 1971 to 1974. During their lifetime they recorded one SWF radio session and an album.
Their style mixed jazzy and classical touches, and elements as diverse as Jethro Tull, Amon Düül II or Vinegar.”

SO: Apparently, Tortilla Flat recorded this radio session....

The first vinyl reissue in many, many years of this classic one-off release that's *almost* a Amon Duul II album, but isn't quite an Amon Duul II album. It's still really good though....

"It seems that even in 1973 Amon Düül II still wanted to do double albums! But, instead of making WOLF CITY into a double, somehow this side-line project came in to being, fronted by three musicians who had earlier worked together in Passport (on their debut LP). Although since reissued as an Amon Düül II album...

Beautiful gatefold reissue of the second and final release by Virus, originally released by Pilz in 1972.

"For their second album, Virus changed radically, in both band members and music direction. Gone are the psychedelic workouts found on...

"Besides the releases of recordings of the golden age of progressive-, Kraut- and psychedelic rock from the end of '60s to the end of the '70s, Long Hair also decides to release recordings of young bands creating corresponding sounds of today...

This real rarity of symphonic rock from the 80s was first reissued by Laser's Edge, very early on in their career!

"Werwolf were named actually after the famous band Steppenwolf, which drummer Peter Besting liked a lot at the time (around 1970) .Original crew included also Hartwig Kugoth on guitar and Peter Lorenz on bass.
The band hailed from Olpe and was rehearsing regularly at Besting’s newly built house in Wenden since 1972. Around mid-70's they were joined by Jurgen Goeckler on keyboards.

This is the first time that this 1971 Krautrock album has ever been released on CD legitimately!

"Originating as a beat group in the mid-60's, playing mainly at US air bases in Southern Germany. By 1969 (and after many name and personnel...
