Long Hair proudly presents one of the most sought after German albums of the early seventies, now for the first time officially re-released on LP: Tortilla Flat‘s ‘Für Ein 3/4 Stündchen‘, originally recorded in winter 1974 and released in early 1975 as a private pressing.
The instrumental album is very flute and electric piano driven, with very exciting guitar playing accompanied by rocking drumming with slightly jazzy influences and nimble bass lines, very tight! Many mention Supersister as a comparison, Kraan‘s first album, Brainstorm or Mel Collins‘ Circus (Crack In The Cosmic Egg), but all this is not really true. In fact the music is very unique, not typical Krautrock, but psychedelic, complex but very tuneful, with slight jazzrock influences and a little bit of British Canterbury sound. Many flute soloing, exciting great fuzzing guitar soloing and an impressing electric piano sound with that special teutonic Krautrock feel, this is Tortilla Flat on their sole album. Hard to describe but really great and pleasent to listen to and for sure a classic German progressive underground album. Played by well trained musicians with great composition skills.
