Hi there, it's time to talk about this freaky 70's German space / symphonic band. Bill Barone & Jurgen Dollase duets (fire guitar solos and rapid keyboards scales) are totally outstanding (on their two first albums)

Yeah. Good band. I've got Stories, Songs & Symphonies as well as Blitzkrieg. I think I prefer the latter.

Actually , the latter is S,S &S,  sonce Blitzkrieg is the debut.

Their first two albums ,Blitzkrieg and Mother Universe are both excellent , Cosmic Traveller (their third ) is a bit non-exciting , but S,S&S is atrociously bad, pompous and ridiculous. IMHO, of course!

let's just stay above the moral melee
prefer the sink to the gutter
keep our sand-castle virtues
content to be a doer
as well as a thinker,
prefer lifting our pen
rather than un-sheath our sword

IMO Blitzkrieg is far far better than ELP...
If Triumvirat were poor man's ELP, Wallenstein were the rich man's ELP...

Not comparable. Blietzkrieg is full of guitars and is borderline Deep Purple.

Are you not mistaken Wallenstein with Triumvirat?

Interesting, any online samples of their music floating around in cyberspace?

Checked forum and nothing there.

I only have Cosmic Century (not Traveller, Sean Trane! ). I wasn't
much impressed at the first listen, it will take me a few more to get
into it. But Shakespearesque (from their second, I suppose) is a great
track, as far as I remember
