Here we go -

Ibliss - Supernova (1972)

The German band Ibliss released only one album, which is probably more fusion/jazzrock than it is progressive rock. There are four long tracks, the last one, "Athir", being the best in my opinion. This thing is a percussion extravaganza, with most of the first track sounding like a hippie drum circle, only with really good drummers. Lotta flute, sax, and early 70's cosmic-ness.


Sameti - Sameti (1972)

Sameti had some members who were late of Amon Düül II and the German band Embryo, and the highlight on this is a 22 minute long improvisation, "anotherwaytosee", which definitely sounds very Amon Düül II-ish, and wouldn't sound out of place on one of the classic Düül albums like "Tanz Der Lemminge". Another semi-structured song is called "Big Fat Brother Joint", and likely provides a glimpse into these guys' personal habits!


Web - I Spider (1970)

This is a great album, featuring Dave Lawson of Greenslade, though we can be thankful his brilliant organ/mellotron work and vocals sound nothing like he put out with them! A little 'dark' sounding, this is driving, intense jazzrock. This is the British group's third album, the only one with Lawson. After this release they changed their name to Samurai.


Cosmic Eye - Dream Sequence (1972)

I like this album but I don't know what the hell it is really. Prog? Jazz? Avant-Garde? Lotta sitar, tabla, violin. From what I can glean from the net, this is a crew of British jazz musicians from the early 70's taking a stab at psychedelia and doing a damn good job of it.


Roger Waters - In The Flesh (2000)

Roger Waters' sixth solo release is an awesome sounding collection of live performances from his 1999 tour, showcasing some of his best work. His solo versions of Pink Floyd material are unbelievably good.

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3

Prof. Wolfff - Prof. Wolfff (1972)

Prof. Wolfff sounds like an angrier, more progressive and more electric version of "Ihre Kinder" which isn't too surprising since their only album was produced by Ihre Kinder's manager. This is a good album that may not hit with everybody. Hard prog with classical-sounding keyboard workouts and political lyrics in German with large doses of great sometimes raw-sounding guitar.


P205 - Vivat Progressio - Pereat Mundus (1978)

This is P205's second album and what it is, is good basic rough-edged rock and roll from the German underground. No "lost treasure of Krautrock" or anything, but there are moments here and there that make you wonder what might have come with a little financial success. When I'm in the mood for this kinda stuff, this album really hits the spot.

Part 1__Part 2

The Beatles - Men & Horses, Hoops & Garters

This is a different kind of Beatles bootleg! This website will explain what it's all about:

Part 1 Part 2

Various Artists - Heavy Christmas (1971)

And finally, last but not least, a dang Krautrock Christmas album! Two of the bands we've met before, "Virus" and "Dies Irae", we'll meet "Ardo Dombec" later, the other bands I don't know. My favorites are Virus's "X-Mas Submarine" and Dies Irae's "Silent Night".


OK! Hopefully this will hold you lunatics for a week!

So I come home and get stoned in honor of John Lennon like I do everynight and the first thing I listen to when I crank up the music box is the King Lear Speech from MHHG. I Am the walrus, dude, hearing that alone was worth . . . and such a long time coming. Wouldn't have happened without you.

Kindly thanks for your wonderful place! It is a great service to great music. Would it be perhaps Satin Whale or Human Instinct in the future here? (Sorry for my English is not so perfectly done).

Kind greatness to you!
