200-gram rubine and black LP version in deluxe heavy-duty sleeve. Limited numbered edition of 333. Previously unreleased album from the '70s by German trio Sand. Still living in the mythical landscapes, Sand not not only created Golem (ROTOR 006CD/LP/BLU-LP/PIC-LP, 1974), who was a being of the earth. Something else pulsated with a different energy of oscillation. The invisible beings of the air performed their dances. The Golem was large, mighty and of compact matter. He needed an external spirit to be navigated. Sylph creatures moved with the clouds and the wind -- from gentle breezes to violent storms, always sensitive to the chimes of the motions. The sylphs are the children of the moonlight as well as the elves with broken wings. The Sylph Ballet is riding upon ethereal horses and its airy spirit comes true in dawn levitation. There is something magical and inexplicable in creation, and Sand absolutely manifest these mysterious phenomena. Storytellers, musicians, shamans, geniuses -- Sand were known, at the end of the '60s, as P.O.T. (Part of Time). Then Sand -- Ludwig Papenberg, his brother Ulrich Papenberg, and Johannes Vester -- developed a more avant-gardist, proto-industrial, visionary, experimental approach, becoming a truly unique entity in the history of music. Not dependent on a classic krautrock style, Sand is nevertheless part of this movement of German cosmic/psychedelic bands, in addition to being the originators of proto-industrial musics. Johannes Vester: lyrics, vocals, guitar, VCS3, harmonium, collateral piano, natural brooklet. Ludwig Papenberg: guitar, drums, collateral piano, VCS3, bubbling brook. Ulrich Papenberg: bass, generator. Guest: Jörg Welz: grand piano. Mastered by Hervé de Keroullas. Layout by Frédéric Tacer. Cover painting by Babs Santini, 2009.
