Artist: ET CETERA
Title: Et Cetera
Format: CD
Label: Long Hair
Country: Germany
Price: $25.00
"Heavy, crazy and amazing Wolfgang Dauner album, reissued for the first time ever. "First ever released on CD, Et Ceteras eponymous album (1980 reissue on Brain titled Lady Blue), originally released in 1971 on Global is an extraordinary album of weirdly trippy fusion that rides somewhere between instrumental Amon Düül II, Embryo and Dauners own earlier classic Output. Full of ethnic (Arabic and Indian) spice with lots of the ethnic color added by legendary guitar and sitar (et. al.) player Sigi Schwab (Embryo), odd keyboard sounds by Wolfgang Dauner, dreamy bass patterns by Eberhard Weber and driving percussions by Fred Braceful and Roland Wittich, this is spacy, crazy, Krautrock and -- a bit jazzy. Alan and Steven Freeman (The Crack In The Cosmic Egg) present this album in their The Krautrock Top 100. Maybe the album was originally planned as a double-LP because there are three more titles from the same recording session, which really knock you out. Kabul is a killer, especially because of Schwabs exploding electric guitar and Webers driving bass. Tau Ceti is a wonderfully dreamy delight presenting Schwabs gorgeous acoustic guitar playing. Last but not least, the bonus track Behind The Stage connects Schwabs special electric guitar with the bands atmospheric but rhythmic fundamental playing. This album will be a masterpiece for all time. Its unique. Digitally remastered from the original master tapes. The sound is brilliant. CD comes with informative booklet." Includes 3 bonus tracks." -Long Hair

Artist: KOLLEKTIV
Title: SWF-Sessions Volume 5
Format: CD
Label: Long Hair
Country: Germany
Price: $20.00
"Kollektiv is the first band in the series of SWF sessions on Long Hair who, at the time of the SWF recording on 06.07.1973, was relatively well known. In March 1973 the band recorded its first LP, with Conny Plank as co-producer and sound-engineer, for the legendary Brain-Metronome Label. Acclaimed by progressive and krautrock fans and critics alike, it showed a different, more innovative style of playing contemporary German rock music and was honoured with a nomination for the German Schallplattenpreis. A re-release of the LP on Long Hair is planned. Kollektiv recorded new versions of two of the titles from the LP in SWF’s Studio U 1 in Baden-Baden. The SWF versions of “Baldrian” and “Gageg” demonstrate the band’s ability to improvise, its successful efforts to develop its best ideas and a dynamic handling of basic themes. The other three titles are snapshots of songs subjected to continuous development, yet always revolving around a fixed framework, showing remarkable instrumental ability and the desire to experiment and explore the scope for development." - Long Hair.

Artist: MAMMUT
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Long Hair
Country: Germany
Price: $32.00
"Originally released in 1971, this album is an intense and bombastic hybrid between heavy fuzz acid guitar, instinctive free rock improvisations and some lyrical, classical influenced interludes/fragments. Mammut played in an impressive and convincing manner their conception of an psychedelic rock opera. For that each title includes the name Mammut. The opening track Bird Mammut is a groovy, percussive, crazy psychedelic affair featuring an avalanche of drums, trippy organs, bluesy e-guitar and wistful flute passages. Classical Mammut delivers a short piano interlude, a pleasant melodic moment. Mammut Ecstasy is a fuzzy heavy psychedelic composition with furious rhythms, an efficient bass guitar leading theme and some nice keyboard moves. Foot Machine Mammut alternates a bluesy pop song with free guitar jams accompanied by Hammond organ. Perhaps parts of the first Embryo album are comparable to this. Nähgarn Mammut" is their attempt to be more lyrical and melodic, while the album closes with 14 minutes of Mammut Opera, which show Mammut at their best. Dark sounds with hints of Amon Düül II, heavy blues rock with all sorts of strange, ethnic and gothic touches combined in their music. Altough the band themselves quoted Deep Purple in rock as a major influence, their spirit was purely Krautrock. Their sole album is a legendary rarity. Comes with 1 bonus track, comprehensive insert, digitally remastered. A classic! Don´t miss it!" -Long Hair
