Die Grune Reise - The Green Journey

Label: Polydor

Format: LP

Genre: Psych

In stock


Exact LP repro edition. Grey area LP reissue of this incredible album. Achim Reichel's 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."

- "...the final result of a kind of higher awareness..." --Julian Cope
