Prog Reviewer
4 stars If we gave stars for ethics, we'd have to give this one 0 out of 5 - but other contributors have already outlined the dodgy history behind this recording. Regardless of whether the artists involved knew that their private jam was going to be turned into an album or not, the fact is that the debut Cosmic Jokers album delivers the absolute cream of the crop from that legendary session, and presents a Krautrock fan's dream lineup in the performance. Not quite fitting the sound of any of the members' "day jobs", it's worth a listen to anyone who's a fan of Ash Ra Tempel or other artists from the Cosmic Couriers stable.
Warthur | 4/5 |
