Eulenspygel - Staub Aud Deinem Haar

SKU 18-GOD 107
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 sounded like English folk-rock from James Taylor to Jethro Tull. Now looking back it really sounded original for a live sound of 1973.' Eulenspygel are demonstrating here that they could convince their fans on stage, too. German lyrics and this time with two acoustic guitars. Good sound quality.

"Eulenspygel from the Swabian mountains were known for their German lyrics, critical texts which denounce the abuses within their society. On January 13th 1973 the trouble-makers had a gig at the radio show “Kleine Nachtmusik” (small serenade) of the WDR. The gig was transmitted live from the Grober Sendesaal. The CD was thus taken from the master tapes of the radio station. In the meantime the band had become smaller, now being five instead of seven. Flute and violin were missing completely, and the keyboards were used only from time to time. Still, with two acoustic guitars the sound of their music became much more folk like. Although this is quite unusual for Eulenspygel, the lyrics didn’t change at all. Their original version as its English translation can be found in the CD’s booklet. Also a lot of pictures, cover repros, discographies, and the band’s history are to be seen."
