Artist: EPIDAURUS
Title: Earthly Paradise
Format: LP
Label: Garden of Delights
Country: Germany
Price: $25.00
"...obscure 1977 album from German band Epidaurus is a treat for fans of acoustic and electric keyboard instruments. There are two keyboard players: Gunther Henne (Hammond C3 organ, mellotron, mini-moog, polymoog; clavinet D6, and Fender Rhodes electric piano); and Gerd Linke (Hammond C3 organ, mellotron, mini-moog, 12-string acoustic guitar; clavinet D6, grand piano and Fender Rhodes electric piano). They layer spacey synthesizers and churchy sounding Hammond pads plastered throughout (think Tony Banks here). With the exception of some acoustic 12-string parts, guitars are largely absent—to drive the point home further, the keyboardists wrote all of the material. Into the mostly instrumental mix comes vocalist Christine Wand. Odd time signatures, nimble keyboard solos, very nice melodies, harmonies, and counterpoint. A Tangerine Dream electronica influence is pretty heavy on the closing track, Mitternachstraum, which would not be out of place on a Tangerine Dream or Kraftwerk album. All in all, this is another unjustly ignored prog albums. Recommended." - Garden of Delights.
