The fusion group Sunbirds was founded by the jazz musicians Klaus Weiss and Fritz Pauer in Munich in 1971, when the two of them had already made a name for themselves. They got Ferdinand Povel, Jimmy Woode and the world-famous guitarist Philip Catherine to join them. The band name Sunbirds was Fritz Pauer‘s idea, as well as the songs in E major and E minor, carrying titles including the word "sun". E is the sound representing the sun in esotericism. Due to their good connections, they could soon sign a contract with the then newly-founded BASF label. The LP was released in that same year of 1971, simply under the name of ‘Sunbirds‘ (BASF 2021110-2).
The picture disc LP was taken from the master tapes, is limited to 1000 numbered copies, and comes with an LP-sized 16-page insert.
