Cosmic Jokers - Cosmic Jokers vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 05-KM 580096 LP
One of the stone classics of Krautrock and Kosmiche Musik, reissued for the very first time on CD and on vinyl from the original analog masters!

The Cosmic Jokers grew out of the marathon, LSD-rich sessions instigated by Rolf-Urich Kaiser (Kosmiche Musik/Cosmic Couriers) and Timothy Leary that also produced Ash Ra Tempel's "Seven Up".
What this is, essentially, is a 'kraut-rock super session', with Jurgen Dollase, Harald Gosskopf, Manuel Gotsching, Klaus Schulze and Dieter Dierks. So, a meeting of Wallenstein with Ash Ra at their most spaced out. Two side long jams and for my money, this is the best of the Cosmic Jokers albums.
Good, fun, classic, extremely spacey hippie fuckery / kosmiche explorations. Recommended!

"In 1974 the Cosmic Jokers were basically Klaus Schulze, Manuel Göttsching, Harald Grosskopf and various Ash Ra Tempel and Wallenstein members doing late night jamming. Galactic Supermarket is one of them, and is more rock-oriented than many others. It's no surprise the music bears more than a passing resemblance to Ash Ra Tempel, because of Manuel Göttsching and his guitar playing. Also Jürgen Dollase gives some nice keyboard work, particularly the piano, Farfisa electric piano, synths, and even a little Mellotron. Klaus Schulze were more responsible for the more droning organ and synth end of things, it's pretty obvious when he plays it. The legendary producer Dieter Dierks plays bass on these nearly never ending improvisation. The recording was transferred from the original analog tapes at the Dierks Studios in Germany. And carefully remastered for an incredible result."
