3 stars Witthuser & Westrupp made two ultimate progressive folk classics with "Trips & Traum" and "Der Jesuspilz" but don't reiterate their effort in this "Bauer Plath" wich is a vague collection of teutonic country folk music. The compositions don't lost their bucolic charm but the adventurous "acid" / "esoteric" dimensions of the band have gone. The introduction track is a nice dancing folk song for Harmonica & Banjo, very "rustic". "Vision 1" is a melancholic ballad with German narratives, banjo, choir and plaintive organ chords. "Der rat der Motten" is a refined, little "bucolic" ballad, always with this nostalgic feeling. A good traditional "teutonic" folk document, including a few proggy elements. A pleasant listening but only for fans!
