"Mani Neumeier has been at the helm of Germany's legendary Krautrock group Guru Guru for over 35 years and for 20 of those years he's been working on Sketches, his first solo album. Sketches is an absolutely sacred collage of rare field recordings...

"A damn good one-million-euro question: Who was the first German musician to have his likeness displayed at the Tokyo Wax Museum? Answer: Mani Neumeier, founder and drummer of the legendary Krautrock band Guru Guru. And how come? Simple: The Japanese...

Niagra released 3 albums (two on United Artists) in Germany in the heady early Krautrock days. The first album is a all percussion album (that's all percussion, not all drum solos). The second album adds other musicians/instruments as does the third...

"One of the killer albums from the German underground. Nosferatu has always been a big ticket item on the collector's scene and with good reason. Raw, high energy outbursts of organ, guitar, flute and sax - it is a mix of progressive and hard rock...

"Amongst the most obscure of Krautrock bands, due to being so early and on an unlikely label. In their early days they were fronted by guitarist/vocalist Michael Winzkowski (who went on to Epsilon), but apart from that, nothing is known of their...

"The second album of German band Octopus. A strong prog rock album with long solos on keyboards and guitar. The Mediterranean lyrics make this CD almost a concept album. Originally released in 1978. Released on cd for the very first time."

The German/Dutch band Odin are best known for their one release on German Vertigo. This is an interesting release of mostly cover tunes (Neil Young! Frank Zappa, King Crimson) from early in their career. More than decent sound considering the age of the recordings, but definitely on the 'good bootleg' side of sonics.

"This live concert is an impressive documentation of Odin, captured at the birth of the band’s search for its individual identity. The four musicians had agreed to cast in their lots..

"Odin, like Nektar was a British band residing in Germany. While Nektar received some success (especially the United States when Passport Records showed an interest in their music), Odin simply released one album, disappeared, and has pretty much been...

"Second album from this overlooked band. Os Mundi was considered the first rock band from Berlin with lots of members moving in and out of the band. 43 Minuten marked a departure from their debut "A Latin Mass", finding the band with a stronger jazz...

All previously unreleased recordings!
"Os Mundi from Berlin became known because of their two LPs on Metronome and Brain. In 1975, when they had almost reached the period of breaking up, their guitarist Udo Arndt was doing a practical training in...

This is the sixth and seventh albums by this German folk rock band, complete and on CD for the very first time.

"A new studio album from legendary German medieval prog-rock outfit Ougenweide. While countless Ougenweide epigones have sprung up out of the ground like mushrooms over the past decade, the originals took the same length of time to prepare their new...

Ougenweide are a now forgotten German folk-rock with medieval influences. As someone very perceptively put it on the avant-progressive list, "...some lovely extended cuts which almost crossed over into jazz land. Kind of like a cross between Gryphon (f...

This is the fifth album by this German folk rock band, which was originally a double live album and which all fits here on CD and is released on CD for the very first time...

"Out of Focus from Munich released three LPs during their lifetime. Their last one was a double LP which was done after they had toured in Italy, a musical journey which had been sponsored by the Goethe Institute. The gigs had been recorded on an...

For their 3rd and final album, Out Of Focus added many musicians on reeds and brass, in addition to their usual guitar, organ, sax, bass, drums lineup. This record, the well known "Four Letter Monday Afternoon", was released as a double album, but...

"Pancake from Winnenden near Stuttgart in Suabia emerged from their psychedelic predecessor Nyrvana Pancake in 1974 and now played progressive rock with clear symphonic tendencies. With changing members they released three LPs with self-written tracks...

"Panko from West Berlin - not to be confused with the much later GDR band Pankow - are somewhat reminiscent of Xhol Caravan or the early Embryo. They mostly presented long jazzy instrumental passages dominated by the transverse flute and alto saxophone, temporarily interrupted by mainly English vocals and some follies.

The band existed from the late sixties until the end of 1972. During their lifetime, the group didn't release anything, although they would have had the potential to do so....

Fifth album by this popular and good fusion band of the early to mid 70's (well, they went on longer, but we won't talk about that). The leader, Klaus Doldinger, a longtime mainstay on the German scene, contributes saxes, some cool, early Moog sequence...

The very first (and in some ways one of the/the very best) Passport album. Klaus Doldinger was a well respected sax player in the German jazz world during the 1960s, but like so many other jazzmen, Miles Davis' jazz/rock explosion hit him hard and he...

"Klaus Doldinger celebrated his silver anniversary (25 years) as a recorded artist with the Doldinger Jubilee. It worked so well, that he decided to do it again in 1975. The concept is simple, he stages a concert featuring his band, Passport, and adds...

This 1974 album features Klaus Doldinger and Passport with special guests like: Brian Auger, Johnny Griffin (!), Alexis Korner, Volker Kriegel, etc. This is only in print as a mini-lp sleeve from Japan, which you can get from us while we have them or...

Sixth and last really good album (all you fans of Earthborn and Blue Tattoo are welcome to write me a nastygram if you like) by this popular and good fusion band of the early to mid 70's (well, they went on longer, but we won't talk about that)...

This set features the five great albums that this early German jazz/rock/progressive band released between 1972 and 1976. The albums are: Passport (aka Doldinger), Hand Made, Looking Thru, Cross-Collateral and Infinity Machine. As far as I am concerned...

"Amongst the most legendary of Austrian underground bands, but with a virtually undocumented history, Paternoster originated from Vienna, and existed for only two years in the early-70's, disbanding after the release of just one album. Paternoster were...

"Reissue of Paternoster's self-titled album, originally released in 1972. Not every kraut album comes from a German band. Brainticket were in fact Swiss with a Belgian mastermind, for example. Paternoster on the other hand, who play an organ-driven solemn progressive rock with a heavy edge, come from Austria and really enlighten the heart of all fans of dark and often morbid rock music. It might be a good idea to overhear the pronunciation and the whole lyrics and take the vocals as another instrument...

1972 first release by this German Bacillus band, featuring lots of great heavy organ and guitar work, vocals, bass and drums, as well as touches from violin, flute and mellotron.

"Marburg saw a unique combination of psychedelic and progressive sounds, complex and lyrical, with subtle classical touches handled in a manner rivalling the best Italian releases of the era. A unique touch was the two lead vocalists, each with a distinctly different style..."-The Crack In The Cosmic Egg

Nice digipack reissue of Popol Vuh's 1st album which includes a booklet of photos and more. They are not remastered, but they sonically equal the High Tide version, which were the definitive versions, beating the crap out of the not very well done Spal...

13th album, from 1979, ("The Night Of The Spirit"). DjongThe 1st & 13th albums by this great group. These excellent and hard to locate versions of most of Popol Vuh's classic works are markedly superior to the more common Spalax versions, as they gener...

2004 edition in digipack of Popol Vuh's 15th album, and their last really good one, featuring a great lineup of Florian Fricke, Daniel Fichelscher, Conny Veit & Renaute Knaup. "'Circledance' is an unreleased track with some rock guitar sound with drums...

These two, from the early 1980's, are pretty much the last 'true' releases by Popol Vuh (we'll be kind & not count the horrible 90's 'beat' releases Fricke put out). While they may not be quit up to the mid 70's prime, there is nothing that would put o...
