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

Rare, one-off, 1970 album originally released on Bellaphon. "You have to really like the Hammond organ because with this recording you are going to get a lot of it. Jazzy fuzz organ with a lot of discordant tunes. The lead guitar is along for the ride." Sounds like MY kind of ride!

"Little is known about the origins of Orange Peel, though on their debut single the band featured Michael Winzkowski (also of Nosferatu and Epsilon), and they proved quite seminal, with Heinrich Mohn later following Winzkowski to Epsilon, Peter Bischof moving on to Emergency, and Curt Cress becoming amongst the most prolific of drummers. Orange Peel's LP was amongst the most psychedelic of heavy progressive albums, not least side one's opus "You Can't Change Them All", a veritable masterwork of heavy riffing organ rock, kind of Egg and Pink Floyd jamming Krautrock style, featuring vast guitar excursions, and Peter Bischof's gutsy blues vocals. And then there's "We Still Try To Change" encompassing half of the second side, which trips out beyond the realms of side one's opus, like a crazed Arzachel, close to Os Mundi at their freakiest. The odd track out is an unusual arrangement of "Tobacco Road"."-The Crack In The Cosmic Egg

H. Peter Bischof (vocals, percussion), Curt Cress (drums, percussion), H. Leslie Link (guitar), Heinrich Mohn (bass), Ralph Wiltheiss (organ)
