3 stars One could be excused for thinking that this would be a Krautrock or at least highly electronic album based on the title, but in fact it is a highly psychedelic and largely acoustic artifact from those very early 1970s. It is that rare breed, a German folk psych album, with nascent progressive touches. Lots of acoustic guitar strumming, plenty of sitars, congas, gentle flutes and other instruments linked to trips of the sedentary variety. As a longtime fan of British Isles folk, I discern a variety of traditional tunes sprinkled here and there, as in the entire melody of "Lassic", and the flute segment of "Schmetterling". The latter is handled with a lot more panache, and the whole track is an inspired jam, as is the closer "Nossa Bova" with its slight Caribbean flavour. Almost 40 years on, it's hard to find a timeless element here, other than the pleasure of getting together with friends to play and hear good music.
