Ihre Kinder, formed in 1968, and were the pioneers among the politically and socially engaged groups in Germany. Their second album 'Leere Hände' was originally released on the legendary Kuckuck label in 1970. The English version, called 'Empty Hands', has never been available on vinyl. There was a small number of white label copies pressed by Deutsche Grammophon in 1970/'71 to solicit releases by Polygram companies around the world, but as there was no interest, the label dropped the idea. So, now it is the first time ever, that the English version of 'Leere Hände' is being pressed on vinyl, with the original Kuckuck labels and tracklist, and the cover as intended for the English version. A great German progressive psychedelic effort, which sounds different -but equally great- in English, that should be part of every serious 70s progressive rock collection. Limited deluxe edition on 180-gram vinyl with a printed innersleeve.
