4 stars I'm so glad I took a chance on this album. I had heard the opening track on Youtube and based on that I thought i'd check them out. This German band is more of a Heavy / Psyche band than say Krautrock with melocdic enjoyable tunes led by guitar and organ. Their name comes from a Chinese book and on this their debut they were helped out in the recording studio by none other then Achim Reichel (A R & MACHINES) and Frank Dostal, while Conny Plank engineered it. It was released in the spring of 1972.

"Fairy-Tales" opens with bass and cymbals followed by guitar and organ. It's building until we get a full sound 1 1/2 minutes in. I really like the guitar and organ in this one. A killer instrumental section starts before 5 minutes until the vocals return after 8 minutes. Great tune ! "Sometime" is laid back with guitar, drums and floating organ.There's some mellotron in this one as well. The guitar is outstanding before 3 1/2 minutes. Some passion here at times.Good song. "Don't You Know" is a catchy track. Nice organ solo 2 minutes in. Explosive sounds and noise 4 minutes in followed by an incredible instrumental section. Vocals 6 minutes in. "Too Many People" opens with laughter followed by strummed guitar, drums and harmonica.Vocals and organ follow. Some mellotron in this one too.This reminds me of the STONES. Some clapping after 3 minutes. What a feel good tune this is.

"Drugson's Trip" is a funny title. Some raw and aggressive guitar to start as organ, drums then vocals join in. Catchy stuff. It settles some before 2 minutes.The guitar then rises out of the calm 3 minutes in. Hell yeah ! A nice heavy, raw sound after 4 minutes. Amazing. "My Dove" is laid back with vocals, organ and light drums. It gets fuller as contrasts continue. Some nice bass in this one. It kicks in hard before 2 minutes with guitar. Nice. Mellotron in this one too. "Everything" opens with some power with organ runs and pounding drums. So catchy. A sing-a-long chorus here too. I like the instrumental break 2 minutes in. Vocals are back 4 1/2 minutes in. "My Future" is a short laid back tune with strummed guitar to open. It picks up with percussion and vocals helping out.

For me this is a solid 4 stars.
