The 2nd album, also on Pilz, from Spring, 1972, & featuring Jurgen Dollase-keyboards/vocals, Bill Barone-guitar, Jerry Berkers-bass/vocals and Harald Grosskopf-drums. These guys also make appearances as part of the 'acid house' band on the Cosmic Jokers records, and additionally, Grosskopf went onto work on some of Klaus Schulze's very best albums. This is pretty straight forward symphonic rock of its time.
