3 stars This is a primitive, tribal psychedelic rock manifestation, continuously improvised, spontaneous and making a large place to acoustic, ritualistic percussions, agressive fuzzed out guitars. Tracks 2& 3 contain massive, obsessive, hammering drums exercices in ethnic folk, acid proportions, based on repetitive, endless motifs. Track 3 also features stoned, bizarre monotonous voices at the end. Track 4 is an original kraut improvisation, including dark drum experimentations, noises and violent bluesy rock guitars. Track 5 is a heavy psych piece, delivering an insistent rhythm and free chants. Track 6 is a folk trip song with a basic repetitive rhythm, almost unsignificant stoned voices in the distance and psych guitar harmonies. Track 7 includes an avalanche of ritual drums. Track 9 is a mechanical noisy experimentation with drums, concerte sounds and voices (the atmosphere is closed to cryptical stuffs written by the German avant garde band Anima). Certainly less refined than Amon Duul II but it contains a very catchy primitive energy. The contemplative, pastoral psych "Paradieswarts" remains the best part of these late 60's live sessions and among the best Amon Duul's materials. A very bad sound quality but it is an interesting release for krautrock collectors.
