5 stars WHAT AN INCREDIBLE EXCITING EXPERIENCE THIS DVD IS!! Since the second half of the Seventies I am a Krautrock fan, in that period I started to collect albums from Novalis, Jane, Grobschnitt, Eloy, Hoelderlin and Ramses. I remember that I witnessed concerts by some of these bands on the German television (our neighbours) like Grobschnitt and Jane. And now this DVD contains live footage from that era (1970-1978), WHAT A THRILL!!

The featured bands on this DVD are Amon Düül II, Can, Frumpy, Lucifer's Friend, Epitaph, Birth Control, Passport, Guru Guru, Popol Vuh, Kraftwerk, Embryo, Novalis, Lothar Meid, Eloy and Jane. These bands deliver a lot of variety, from psychedelic (Amon Duul II), experimental (Popol Vuh) and jazzy (Passport) to symphonic rock (Novalis and Eloy), bluesrock (Frumpy) and hardrock (Lucifer's Friend). I was very delighted about the tracks by Frumpy (great Hammond organ sound), Amon Duul II (captivating psychedelic rock with raw guitar, a powerful violin solo and lots of weird synthesizer sounds), Eloy (wonderful and lush sound with Hammond, Minimoog and fiery electric guitar along the warm and distinctive vocals by Frank Bornemann), Jane (simple but very compelling symphonic bluesrock with great interplay between fiery guitar and powerful Hammond waves) and the absolute highlight Novalis delivering their epic Sonnenwende (17 minutes): wonderful keyboards by Lutz Rahn (beautiful flute-Mellotron intro, then tasteful work on Hammond, Minimoog, string-ensemble and clavinet), inspired vocals and sensitive, very flowing electric guitar, GREAT! The 42 minutes docu is very interesting but also a bit sad because it confronts you with the difficult situation in which the many promising Krautrock groups had to survive, only a few managed because most of the bands got no support from record companies and government! The docu contains very exciting live footage from bands like Udo Lindenberg & Panikorchester, Amon Duul II in 1968, Pell Mell, Kraan, Hoelderlin, Atlantis (with Inga Rumpf), Conny Plank Studio with Grobschnitt, Can and really great live scenes from mid- Seventies Tangerine Dream, including Edgar Froese on the Mighty M400 Tron!!

NOT TO BE MISSED!!

5 stars This DVD features a collection of the most important groups of the German progressive rock scene in the 70s.

Everything is superb done on this DVD. Not only the collection of groups is representative, the acts are always shown with one their best and most popular songs - even if it takes a complete side of a former LP like "Sonnenwende" from Novalis. Some of the highlights are "Take Care of Illusion" by Frumpy, "The Work is Done" by Birth Control and "Uranus" by Passport.

Remastered sound quality is excellent as is video quality. Most of the tracks are taken from Beat Club appearances introducing Mike Leckebusch's innovative video effects. The collection is rounded up with a documentary from German TV 1975.

A must-have for progrock fans, for Krautrock specialists and for every German who spent his youth in the 70s. You will enjoy the nearly 3 hour long ride.

Sorry that there is no Vol. 2 up to this date (March 2007).

4 stars What a thrill! Seeing live those legends of German rock! On the menu, Can, Amon Düül II, Kraftwerk, Popol Vuh for the most popular bands. But paradoxically, the prog head will rather enjoy tracks by Birth Control ('The Work is Done' from the famous "Operation" album), Novalis (the whole 'Sonne ... (read more)
