3 stars Not very famous on the prog folk scene, this little 70's German band deserves certain adulation for those who remains sceptics with kraut/folk eccentricities. "Carol of harvest" is a beautiful, refined and gentle folk rock exploration. The whole recording flows like a unique "dreamy" journey of sounds. The band alternates with a certain talent moods and instrumentations. "Put On Your Nightcap " starts as a calm semi-electric ballad accompanied by guitars arpeggios, the sound of wind and stressed female voices. After seven minutes, the sound goes to something more progressive with discreet symphonic "floating" keyboards. "You and me" is a rather "soft" acoustic ballad dominated y female vocals and a "bucolic" guitar accompaniment. A good melodic folk interpretation but slightly "mainstream". "Somewhere At The End Of The Rainbow" is a moody, inspired folk ballad with a very effective melody. The last minutes of the song contains some keyboards lines...probably the most powerful song of the album. "Treary Eyes" starts with a nostalgic, lonely acoustic guitar interlude. The same theme is taken back with the addition of vocals. "Try A Little Bit" is an other plaintive folk rock composition with very "present" female vocals, much more aggressive (if I can say so, than the others). The track features a nice & intense electric guitar solo break. A pleasant listening experience but personally I regret the "accessible" side and the "Anglophone" accent of their music.
