For the first time as a reissue on vinyl: The first and eponymous album of classical rock influenced great German krautrockers Amos Key.

Amos Key lived in Munich and consisted of ...

This edition comes with remastered sound and an insert featuring the band’s story and rare images.
A vinyl–reissue of the self–titled 1972 album by this obscure south German group under the influence of the late ’60s US west–coast. As the title ’Da Capo’ reveals, Arthur Lee’s LOVE was among the members’ main influences, much like Quicksilver Messenger Service. Including trippy sections and even some vague traces of country, ’Da Capo’ rates as one of the most ...
Originally released on small label "Aronda" in 1972 Dzyans eponymous 1st Album was their most rock oriented one.

As the Freeman Brothers write in their classic book ...
This is a real gem and a long lost jewel in the history of psychedelic and electronic space music. Emerald Web comprised the husband and wife duo of Bob Stohl and Kat Epple. The music features lots of trippy flute and synthesizer soundscapes, with the odd vocal track thrown in for good measure. Expect a unique sound fitting somewhere in between Tangerine Dream, Popol Vuh, and the ’Blade Runner’ soundtrack, all ...

Originating in Augsburg (Bavaria, Southern Germany) circa 1969 as Phallus Dei they changed name to Gift in 1972 just to fulfil the contract with label Tel Dec (German Decca), who doesn’t want a group with a dirty name.
