*Gimmix cover. Exact reproduction (!) of original cover sleeve with 4 sided cover sided insert sheet* The record company came up with the idea to have the second album recorded in the Apple Studios In London, instead of in a crummy German studio. At the beginning of April 1972 Eulenspygel went to London by train with their string instruments to start the recordings. lntercord had booked the band for only five days in the studio: for the German and English (TRASH on Long Hair LHC 277) versions of the album. 'Abfall', 22 minutes sole track on Side 1 is a long suite which is really a Rock Opera Of sorts about orphans. A haunting intro with mellotron as spoken German words join in.

The Music kicks in around 2 minutes. Vocals before 3 1/2 minutes as it settles some flute too. It turns experimental as the vocals stop. The atmosphere stops before 9 minutes as strummed guitar takes over followed by flute then vocals 10 1/2 minutes in. Some heavy organ before 12 1/2 minutes with electric guitar, drums and a full sound. Great. lt then picks up with vocals Including some chunky bass. lt settles back 16 1/2 minutes in with floating organ and almost Spoken vocals. lt's building and the vocals sound so good here. Very powerful and opera-like. It settles again after 19 minutes with organ and a beat as the mellotron joins in. Incredible track! Track one on side 2 'Menschenmacher' is very much a riff-driven track and pretty straightforward. Vocals are the focus as the organ, drums and guitar help out. The organ solo followed by the guitar solo later on, great stuff. 'Teufelskreis' is a cool sounding tune with the Vocals sounding more laid back as the drums and acoustic guitar offer up some energy. Sitar Before 6 1/2 minutes to the end. 'Herzliches Beileid' has a beat as reserved and melancholic vocals join in.

The organ replaces the vocals, but they switch back again after 2 minutes. 'Der Fremde' opens with organ as the guitar joins in. lt kicks in hard around a minute then settles back with vocals. Excellent ! Spoken words after 4 minutes then it all picks up again, 'Untertanenfabrik' has a good heavy intro and the vocals come and go. Mellotron before 2 Minutes as we get this haunting mood taking over. Guitar before 3 minutes then organ. Vocals are back late; this is a masterpiece of a Krautrock album. The instrumentation on this Album is vast as well with some sitar, lots of mellotron, violin, flute and hand percussion. According to the liner notes during this recording they borrowed Rod Argents keyboards (who was in Abbey Road Studios at the same time)....also explains the heavy and wonderful Keyboard work on this album. This is clever ever-changing 70's vintage krautrock which we Guarantee will make you smile! This might be just simply one of the best Krautrock albums You have ever heard. Album comes with exact reproduction (!) of original cover sleeve with 4 sided cover sided insert sheet. Remastered. A Must.
