For the first time as a reissue on vinyl: The first and eponymous album of classical rock influenced great German krautrockers Amos Key. Amos Key owed great debts to Bach, Beethoven and Schumann, adding a heavy krautrock twist to a music closely resembling the Nice or Egg, full of angst and weird psychedelic and space–rock touches (Freeman Brothers: In A Crack In The Cosmic Egg). Amos Key lived in Munich and consisted of great organ–player Thomas Molin, congenial bass–player Andreas Gross and superb drummer Lutz Ludwig. This fairly competent outfit recorded the album on label «Spiegelei» just after they recorded their radio sessions (Amos Key, Keynotes, The Lost Tapes, SWF Session 1973, Long Hair, LHC 90). Sadly bandleader and organ–player Thomas Molin passed away in the 90ies but bass–player Andreas Gross tells the band story in a very vivid and funny way. Insert contains also a lot of photos. Sound is perfect; remastered from the original tape.

Very great stuff! Don’t miss it.
