SKU 05-PILZ 290646LP
This is the first-ever vinyl reissue from the original analog master tapes! The first album by this German band, recorded in Fall & Winter 1971, & originally released on Pilz. One of the few purely symphonic rock-styled German albums of the early 70's.

“In 1971, under the direction of Jürgen Dollase, who also composed all the tracks, this album was recorded and finally released in 1972. It was recorded at Dierks Studios by Dieter Dierks himself. Dollase and drummer Harald Grosskopf were later also members of the legendary Cosmic Jokers. Loyal krautrock fans labelled this album as progressive rock -- but that doesn't really do justice. Opulent, lengthy works like "Lunetic" with a playing time of 12 minutes are today among the highlights of what is summarized as krautrock.”

"Wallenstein play a sort of spacey symphonic rock on their debut album Blitzkrieg. Especially on the first track, Wallenstein reminds me more of the mid 70s spacey symphonic prog bands from France like Pulsar, Clearlight, or even Carpe Diem than the German bands of the time. Only the occasional soaring guitar lead is typical for the early German scene. Blitzkrieg is dominated by the classically trained pianist Juergen Dollase."-Gnosis/Sjef Ollers
