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.

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...

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...

"The third incarnation of the legendary krautrock project Kluster/Cluster expands its audience with the contemplative, mature, and intelligent electronic music of Echtzeit. Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Onnen Bock, and Armin Metz are Qluster, founded under the name of Kluster in 1969 by Roedelius, Dieter Moebius, and Conrad Schnitzler. Kluster were responsible for two milestones of electronic music. Schnitzler quit the band two years later, leaving Roedelius and Moebius to carry on as Cluster. When the duo....
