"Remastered deluxe 2007 release. Achim Reichels A.R. & Machines genius German Krautrock/space-rock project Die Grüne Reise - The Green Journey finds new life. Originally issued by Polydor in Germany in 1971, Reichel played all the instruments here, and produced the entire thing himself in partnership with Frank Dostal, who also penned the English lyrics and had previously done time with Reichel in the popular West German beatgruppe, The Rattles. The Green Journey is a masterpiece of doubly/triply-tracked, tape-machined, echo-plexed and looped space-guitar-madness, with a host of skronk, thunderous percussion, tribal whoops, and head-busting, three-dimensional, lysergic lyrics. As the artist himself proclaimed, "I was just trying something out with my guitar, when out of the blue, the Akai X-3300 began to repeat endless cascades of guitar echoes. My guitar suddenly sounded like ten." Initially, The Green Voyage was intended as "a soundtrack for an imaginary movie," and this has now been achieved by some 60 students of the Lippe and Höxters University of Applied Sciences, who, over the course of two terms produced a 42-minute video for the ten album tracks. Theres also a 10-minute "making of" film as well. Housed in a 6-panel, tri-fold dexluxe digipack with liner notes in German and English written by Jörg Gülden." - Tangram.
