Legit reissue from the analog masters of the very first album from this German group, which predate the much, much better known Time Machine and Electric Silence. This very rare 1972 album is the very first version of the band before they would move...

An underservedly obscure German psychedelic jazz/rock band. By the time of this, their 3rd album, from 1974, they had their best-known line-up of:
Eddy Marron (guitars, sitar, zaz, tambura, mellotron, voice)
Reinhard Karwatky (bass, superstring, mellotron, synthesizer)
Peter Giger (drums, percussion)

Trippy tracks featuring Eastern/middle Eastern motifs, jazz fusion power & psychedelic mind expansion. Highly recommended!

The first, very rare album by this well known Austrian sextet (vocals, piano/organ, guitar, flute/sax, bass & drums) was almost totally unknown until this reissue; most people think that their 1976 release "One Nighter" is their first. But this 1971...

Eela Craig were from Austria and are lumped in with the German groups because...well, how many progressive rock Austrian groups were there anyway? The band was formed by keyboardist Hubert Bognermayer in 1971 and released a very rare first album that...

Originally released in 1971 in a self released edition of only 300 by the band, this has been an unknown rarity until this reissue. A keyboards/bass/drums trio, they combined the keyboard-driven sound of bands like The Nice with an obvious German slant...

“The brand new 6th studio album of the celebrated formation with numerous new guests! The excitement was great when in 2017 "Terra Circus", a new studio album by the Electric Family, was released after a break of 10 years. The resounding success of the album also led to live concerts all over Germany. Even then, the band promised that it wouldn't be that long before the next studio album. Promise kept! After only three years, "Echoes Don't Lie", the 6th studio album by the Electric Family will be...

"Electric Sandwich were formed in late 1969 by a group of German students from Bonn. The band initially consisted of four musicians, all of whom had already played with other bands: bass player Klaus Lormann had been playing with Chaotic Trust; lead guitarist Jorg Ohlert used to be with Slaves Of Fire; drummer Wolf Fabian, the founder of the band, had been touring with a band called Muli And The Misfits, and singer Jochen "Archie" Carthaus sang with the Flashbacks. Their own material has been recorded...

First-time ever release on CD for this scarse and quite good PDU album of electronic/kosmiche music by a musician you wouldn't expect to see behind something like this. This is a small treasure for fans of classic era Klaus Schulze, Manuel Gottsching...

A great archival release from Garden of Delights, this captures the band live at a High School gymnasium on September 23rd, 1971 as recorded by Radio Bremen, not long after the release of their 2nd album, Embryo's Rache. This catches them sort of in be...

Embryo are famous for their excursions into world music and collaborations with musicans from all over the globe, but this, their very first album, originally released on the Ohr label in 1970, is a stone classic Krautrock album. And this is the first time it has been issued on CD from the original stereo master tapes!! Highly recommended!!

And this is the first time it has been reissued on vinyl from the original stereo master tapes!! Highly recommended!!

This is a real favorite of mine and has been out of print on CD for many years, so it is a great pleasure to see it available again!
After recording several albums in the early 1970's, from late 1971 to late 1972 Embryo recorded two albums of jammy rock/jazz fusion, which their then current label refused to release because they thought that the band's 'rock' output had more commercial potential.
So the band sold the rights to Brain, who put them out and where they were rightly greeted as....

"The seventh Embryo LP, recorded in the summer of 1974, has a distinct funk touch. The title has nothing to do with surfing or surf music but refers to the musicians' traveling from gig to gig. "Surfin" is often considered one of the weakest and most...

Christian Burchard (voc, vib), Roman Bunka (voc, g), Butze Fischer (dr), Michael Wehmeyer (key), Uve Müllrich (b). Nearly all never-before released live recordings!

"From 1975 until 1978, Embryo played at the Vlotho ”Umsonst und draußen” festival every year. Their concert from July 1977 on the sports ground, figuring as festival site, in front of about 26,000 people was recorded professionally by Ulrich Wilkening, operating the soundboard.
The recording has been preserved till this day....

Never-before heard or released live show by Embryo, which finds them still in their rock/jazz-rock phase and this is great. Excellent live bootleg sound; it won't win any awards, but it's perfectly listenable and it smokes, with some really fine...

A GREAT idea and pretty sympathetic to each other's style, although I think this generally sounds a little closer to Embryo than NNCK. Includes a 24 page booklet. "New York mavericks No-Neck Blues Band and Munich-based Krautrock band Embryo explore the...

This was the band's third and final release and was released only on cassette in an edition of 79 copies, amazingly enough. This is live recordings from 1980/81 and includes a long interview with band member Michel Meyer. Another great, thorough G.O.D....

"Being in Berlin at the time, they soon caught the attention of of the enthusiastic Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser who signed them up for his 'new German folk music label" Pilz. The album Saat was a truly progressive folk masterpiece, with the beautiful 'English' vocals of Dolly Homes and occasionally the contrastingly Teutonic voice of Maik...

NOT the first reissue of this German title, but the first ever reissue from the master tapes and definitely sounding superior to all previous versions!

Hmmmm...Eno, Moebius & Roedelius...that would make this.... The second of two releases by Cluster and Eno, released in 1978, this follows onward from their classic first album. Nice to have this classic spacey/ambient album generally available again. This was recorded when Eno's star was at its zenith.

Eulenspygel came from the Swabian area which is situated in the southwest of Germany. This is a recording from 1973. A short retrospective by band member Detlev Nottrodt: 'Sometimes only the acoustic guitars were playing, meaning Mulo and me, and it so...

"The album offers a typical German progressive blend, drawing equally from heavy rock, folk, jazz and classical. The [band's music was] cleverly arranged, with rich instrumentation and sudden shifts of tempo. The magnum opus was the 22 mintue Abfall, which went through innumberable changes in mood and melody."-Cosmic Dreams At Play.

“This is a real sensation! Eulenspygel's English version of 'Ausschuss' was intended for release by Intercord in 1972, but never went beyond the status of an 8-track..

"The famous lost Exmagma album finally on the loose! What a long strange trip it has been... As one of the hand-selected chosen few who own a tape copy for a couple of years, it’s as much a great joy as it is a relief to live to see a proper (though 3 decades delayed) release of the masterpiece of one of the most inventive Krautbands and one of Konrad Plank’s best ever production jobs.
If you’ve ever seen the band on stage you knew that the problem with the two Exmagma releases always was...

"I was transfixed by the haunting sounds and the poetic pacing of Fahres' music on this CD. Rather than the sound floating through the room, it was as if I was floating in the sound."-Morton Subotnick. With Jon Hassell! "This CD is made up of three...

NOTE: New, sealed copy. Has very slightly dinged upper right corner. It's not too bad, just not perfect, so we knocked $10.00 dollars off.

"The first LP of Faithful Breath, ”Fading Beauty” from 1974, has meanwhile become a classic of symphonic rock and can definitely be recommended. In 1977/1978 they recorded their second album ”Back on my hill” - again including the mellotron - which was released only in 1980, on the Sky label. The long track on the flip side has been played in keeping...

Faust are a rightly legendary experimental German ensemble from the early 1970's. This is almost all of their two posthumous albums which feature the unreleased "Faust V" album and their recordings before they dissolved in the 70's.

Faust are a rightly legendary experimental German ensemble from the early 1970's. This is almost all of their two posthumous albums which feature the unreleased "Faust V/Faust Party 3" album and other lost recordings before they dissolved in the 70's.

This contains their great 1973 Top Gear performance and a substantial amount of extra material, and even two outtakes from their albums, all of which have never been released!
Despite it saying ‘BBC’, nearly all of this was recorded at Wumme during the group’s classic early 70s period and is like a great lost album by them and even includes their ‘lost’ sixth member, Arnulf Meifurt, who only appears on the 1st album and ‘Tapes’.
