This album was released in autumn 1971 as the very first LP on the underground rock label Spiegelei, recorded in the then well-known Maschen Studio in Hamburg from 19 to 21 July 1971. The magazine Musik Express, praised the record and attested the band a surprising (positive) result, especially through the use of the hard German language and underlined their statements, ranging from ‘Kansumgewtisch‘ to the ‘Lied Vom Ende,‘ with aggressive rock which in some passages is reminiscent of early Spooky Tooth. ‘Son My,‘ with more than 11 minutes the longest track on the LP, shows a self-contained group that does not find it difficult to express them musically. Massive organ passages with a flute voice flying along set the main accents in the piece. A frightful mood is created by back coupling and other technical means. ‘Staub Auf Deinem Haar‘ is a title that deals with environmental destruction or more precisely, musically recreates the devastating situation. A wah-wah guitar exploits the possibilities at its disposal, but without engaging. The best impression was given by the musical trilogy ‘Das Lied Vom Ende.‘ The beginning is set with baroque instrumentation. Afterwards, the violin joins the rhythm instruments and symbolises with its speed how the end is approaching. Eulenspygel carried that certain underground German ‘70s vibe with homemade organ grinds, heavy bass and guitar overlays with heavier vocals, the careful mix of jazz, fusion, prog and rock were pretty cleverly arranged and mixed with great imagination, colour and tempo shifts. Fans of krautrock will need to have this album in their collection.


Remastered! The album comes with original cover reproduction with comprehensive 4 sided cover-sized insert sheet with band story, lyrics and rare pics. A must!
