4 stars Somewhere in the musical cavern sandwiched between perhaps AMON DUUL II and Miles Davis lies a very underrated band from Germany called EMBRYO. "Father Son & Holy Ghosts" is the third album released by Embryo and marks for this music lover one of the finest pieces of work to have come out of Germany in 1972. Interesting note is that Miles Davis too was right into this band at the time so I guess I am in good company ! This is not prototypical German underground prog but very much eastern world influenced raga psych prog rock (best way I can describe). EMBRYO utilize a fantastic range of instruments with marimba, vibraphone, flutes, saxophone, violin, a very versatile percussion arsenal on hand. The guitar work of Sigi Schwab is also quite stellar without every really getting in your face and or overpowering the band. Overall an amazing album and one of Unger's favs from the vaults.
