Long Hair is not only proud to present Tortilla Flat
`s legendary sole album „Für ein ¾ Stündchen
“, on vinyl, but also the groups a lot more legendary broadcast sessions for Germany`s leading underground and Krautrock program on radio SWF (look for the further recordings in this series on LongHair). The mainly instrumental album is very flute and in opposite to the latter album electric violin driven, with very exciting guitar playing accompanied by a rocking drumming and nimble bass lines, very tight! And very Teutonic (!) There were not so many progressive rock bands in the early 1970ties with were flute and violin dominated, not to forget the great solo play of lead guitarist Manfred Herten
. An early version of their main opus “Tortilla Flat” shows the band with violinist Werner Knauber and Herman Basten on flute at its best, a dramatic increase with great tunes.
