I didn't see Puppenhaus included in the Archives and wondered if they could be given consideration. Very good Jazz Rock fusion, plenty of flute, keyboards etc. German band. Anyone familiar who could also vouch for them?

I support this proposal, JRF is indeed a suitable home for them.
I assumed they were in PA for some reason, my mistake.

I found them over the internet a few months ago, I was, too, surprised not to find them on PA. There isn't much information on them, either.

I think Wayside recently had a re-release of some of their material, yes?  Sounded tasty.

It's interesting, that they never released an album when existed. How I understand, their first work was released in 2009 only (from tapes of early 70-s).I found just two samples to listen, but IMO it isn't jazz fusion, it is just jazz influenced krautrock. Just look on simplistic musicianship - they use winds and some jazz-like drumming, but all music's structure isn't jazz - based at all.

Good band, and I agree that it should be here (funny, I meant to respond before).  I would have thought JRF myself, but if they don't think it fits, then maybe it could be considered for Krautrock.. hmm, or actually, I think this would be okay in Eclectic.  Been a while since I've heard the album, but I think I'd be fine with it in Eclectic (must listen again).  I'll bring it to the team's attention if JRF has rejected it.

I will try to find full album to listen better. Just few samples I listened before possibly aren't enough.

Hate to be the delinquent here, but is Puppenhaus German for Sh*thouse?LOL  Nice suggestion by the way.
