"Wah Wah brings you more essential Krautrock sounds, this time focusing on the pioneering innovative fusions born out in Munich in the early '70s which helped to bridge the gap between East & West. We're proud to offer the first four albums by one of the longest running bands in the history of German rock: Embryo. Formed around the core of jazz vibrafonist Christian Burchard and drummer Dieter Serfas, the band started their career in Munich in 1969. 40 years later, more than 300 musicians have passed thru' their ranks, from their colleagues of Amon Duül II (Lother Meid, Chris Karrer, Jimmy Jackson), Xhol (Hansi Fischer), Between (Roberto Detree, Peter Hamel) to renowned jazzmen (Charlie Mariano, Mal Waldron) or countless musicians from around the world (Yoruba Dun Dun Orchester, Okay Temiz & Oriental Wind, Karnataka College Of Percussion, Mahmoud Gania, Xizhi Nie), making Embryo an ever-changing but always interesting collective of musicians. This is where it all began. Originally released by Ohr in 1970, Embryo's legendary debut was an inventive piece of progressive jazz-rock spiced-up with free moves and soaked in a late '60s psychedelic atmosphere. The original blueprint which gave birth to the jazzier-end of Krautrock (Xhol, Kollektiv, Thirsty Moon, Kraan...). An absolutely must-have for any Krautrock buff and one of the best Ohr albums! With John Kelly (Ten Years After), Edgar Hofmann, Christian Burchard, Ralph Fischer plus guests Bettsy Alleh (voice), Roberto Detree (motocello), Holger Trülsch (bongo)."
