Only have Widerhoren so far, but I like it a lot, nice and jazzy.

the sound changes after Andy Nogger, more pop but sorta Steely Dan meets Alan Parsons?

Good catchy stuff on Let It Out, Weiderhoren and Flyday, as they were touring with English bands around Andy Nogger and incorporated a more melodic sound. Very diverse albums some to pop, some really good space and prog and fusion.

"Live 75" is their finest moment.

Recommended to me by a Krautrock expert as the point to start, and 6 albums later haveto agree with you BF. Helmut Hattler's bass work was a revelation

He should definitely be named in bass polls more often. I always mention him when I answer to posts in bass threads.

Live '75 is almost unbelievably good, I remember bying it (vinyl), and the guy in the record store assured me that this was one of the best albums of all time! (and he seems to know all about everything, and is a bassist himself). The way they recreate the studio-versions into almost entirely new pieces filled with lots of tight experimentation and superb mucisianship and the way the joy of playing just shines through the loudspeakers is really amazing, Kraan at it's absolute peak! And Helmut Hattler really is a bass-player that deserves much more recognition!

1. Andy Nogger

2. Wintrup

3. Live 75

I saw them play a fantastic gig supporting Van der Graaf (on their first gig as VdG) at The Chalk Farm Roundhouse February 1977. They did a 20 minute version of Holiday am Marterhorn.
The next day i went up to HMV,Bond Street and bought Andy Nogger.

Do 'The Stanley' otherwise I'll thrash you with some rhubarb.
