Founded in summer 1971 in Germany by German organ player Jeff Beer, Dutch guitarist Rob Terstall and English bass player Ray Brown and drummer Stuart Fordham ODIN is one of German-Rockmusic-history greatest mystery. Information about the band are rather rare and with this CD all lovers of progressive rock music of the early seventies will be excellent informed about this great band. The music is played by well educated musicians who play a high level guitar and organ dominated progressive rock. After the release of there one and only album on the famous Vertigo label in 1972, ODIN were invited by German radio SWF to produce 4 titles for a radio show in February 1973. A 12-minutes version of “Live is only” and a 11-minutes version of the Zappa composition “King Kong” are fine examples for ODIN’s terrific musicianship. “Oh no” (6:30) and the Terstall composition “Turnpike lane” make the radio recording session complete. In addition to the radio recordings there is a bonustrack from a concert in autumn 1971 titled “Make up your mind” (13:10) which is an impressive example of the bands early works. All titles are digitally remastered. The booklet contains a comprehensive band history with a lot of rare photos.
