Music today is staying with Germany and Amon Düül ll’s Vive La Trance (1973) is the first album by them that I knew well and I still love it to this day. It’s a mixture of things, male and female vocals, songs, jams, melodic, weird, beautiful. Life is better because of this record.
As I was dying on my feet tonight I asked Olivia to pick three more German records and the first she found was Birth Control’s Plastic People (1975). A classic mid seventies Progressive album full of intriguing parts and arrangements, a voyage of discovery (notice the mask). Nektar came next with Recycled (1976). An English band that lived and formed in Germany. Very much in the Progressive vein. Last but not least one of my favourite Electronic albums, ex Tangerine Dream’s Peter Baumann’s Romance ’76…I gotta go.
