SKU 26-LHC 201202
Until their “SWF Sessions” CD release, Jud’s Gallery were an excellent, unknown and forgotten band of the early 70s. This is the first time their two sole recordings (both for SWF radio) have been released on vinyl.

“Jud's Gallery recorded nine long tracks over two studio sessions in 1972 and 1974. Excellent intelligent progressive krautrock, drenched in occasional classic and heavy blues rock. These songs have been digitally remastered from the original tape to perfect studio quality. Jud's Gallery's epic instrumental passages are dominated by great guitar, organ and violin playing, supported by the excellent bass player and band founder Jürgen "Judy" Winter and drummer Sibi Siebert (later of Twelve Drummers Drumming fame). Includes the classic 'Nordrach' (12 minutes), which apparently influenced the theme of Gary Moore's 'Still Got The Blues'. This double album comes with a 13 minute bonus track called 'New Day's Dawning', recorded in 1975 with guitarist Helmut Krieg of Sperrmüll fame. Comes with a lot of photos and four-sided insert with full band story.”

“At a festival in southern Germany, the band was approached by Roland Schaeffer (Fashion Pink, Brainstorm, Guru Guru) who was working as a producer for SWF at the time. He invited the band for their second SWF session. The band recorded 4 songs, including the 12 minute version of Nordrach, with the line-up of Jürgen "Judy" Winter, Peter Oehler, Clem Winterhalter and Sibi Siebert.
After this session it was only a question of time before Jud's Gallery released an LP. Contacts to Achim Reichel's label "Gorilla Music" were made and shortly before they went into a studio the band broke up due to economic hardship and musical differences. Despite this and thanks to the excellent radio sessions we can relive a fantastic time of enthusiasm and hope from this brilliant band that deserved more at the time."-Manfred Steinheuer, March 2000
