2 stars Yet another band which was eliminated by the military! ALASKA RANGE's members had been forced to join the army in 1971 whereas they had produced only one 7'' vinyl with two songs. Having a promising start - Roland Eggli was soon honoured to be the best drummer in Switzerland for example - ALASKA RANGE had just begun to proceed the transition from rock n' roll and blues to krautrock. But then the band's story ended suddenly - what a pitty.

Castles in the air is a typical 60s tune which reaches for something new and remembers me at the early period of Jethro Tull (the flute) and Steamhammer (the bluesy mood). Daybreak is closer to krautrock with suitable psychedelic guitars comparable with early german bands like DROSSELBART for example.

That's all! Seven minutes are sadly not enough to give a reasonable analysis of this band. For collectors of early psych and kraut music this is an interesting find anyhow as a part of a compilation which was released by the Garden Of Delights label.
