Around that time Lutz Rahn also did some session work for other bands.

The solo album Solo Trip is a pleasant effort that evokes JM Jarre and features wonderful, varied work on keyboards, from sparkling Fender Rhodes piano and soaring string-ensemble to majestic Mellotron and fine synthesizer flights.

Why this artist must be listed in :
Lutz Rahn was keyboard player in the known German progressive rockband Novalis. His solo effort is a pleasant album that evokes early JM Jarre.

Solo Trip
Lutz Rahn Progressive Electronic

Review by Tom Ozric
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Keyboard player Lutz Rahn of Novalis fame put out this very short album of progressive electronic during 1978, in the middle of the 'mother' band's Brandung & Veilliecht bist du ein Clown ? releases. The songs here are quite good, the moods can be quite dark and mysterious, and fully armed with most of the classic analogue gear we prog-heads adore so much. The downside to this album is the cold sounding 'diverse rhythmusmachinen' which sound like the cocktail rhythms on Uncle Arthur's Yamaha organ, and that slightly cheapens the music (and dates it, too) but the actual keyboarding is superb, oozing with Moog synth, Hammond, Mellotron, Rhodes and so on. Not a bad album by any means, but there are more important albums out there to discover before this one.

Solo Trip
Lutz Rahn Progressive Electronic

Review by erik neuteboom

3 stars Lutz Rahn was the excellent keyboardplayer from known German progressive rock band Novalis. Between 1971 and 1985 he delivered 10 albums with the band. In 1978 Lutz Rahn made a solo effort entitled Solo Trip. Don't expect music in the vein of Novalis, Lutz Rhan must have been inspired by JM Jarre his pivotal progressive electronic pop music in those days: lost of pleasant mid-tempo songs featuring mellow synthesizer flights, bleeps and beeps and a tight beat by the drum machine and guest drummer Helge Tillman. Some songs sound more original like Galaxy Taxi (build upon a slow rhythm and omnipresent flute- Mellotron), September (a bit melancholical atmosphere with varied kebyoards like wonderful choir-Mellotron), Drakula`s Kuss (swinging Fender Rhodes piano solo, pleasant synthesizer runs and wonderful choir-Mellotron waves) and the final track Ausklang (dreamy with beautiful Grand piano arpeggios and slow synthesizer fights). This LP often borders pop and electronic, if you like that kind of music this is a fine album. My rating: 2,5 stars.

Thanks to erik neuteboom for the artist addition.
