Brainstorm - Last Smile
This is a never before released live gig in excellent sound, from 4/74 by this jazz rock band who played flute, organ/electric piano, saxes, bass, drums & vocals. I can hear elements of Supersister at times, & maybe even a little bit of the Mothers (King Kong, anyone?).
"Brainstorm, a very sophisticated progressive jazz-rock band of the early seventies, quickly landed a recording contract with Intercord’s Krautrock sub-label Spiegelei, where their two LPs "Smile a while" (1972) and "Second smile" (1973) were released together with the 7"-single "You’re the one" / "Das Schwein trügt" (1973). "Last smile" features a so far unreleased live gig, recorded during the band’s final period in spring 1974 and containing two hitherto unknown tracks. Their style was unchanged and their musical mastership evident. The 32-page colour booklet contains a very detailed list of their official releases, including predecessor and offspring bands as well as solo enterprises. Roland Schaeffer, by the way, subsequently joined Guru Guru. Many fans of jazz-rock featuring saxophone, clarinet and flute will love this album."
