Günther Schickert recorded his amazing self-released LP ‘Samtvogel‘ in 1974. Despite the limited availability of equipment, the music he recorded touches the human heart and soul. ‘Samtvogel‘ will appeal to fans of kraut innovators such as Ash Ra Tempel, Manuel Göttsching or A.R. Machines. Some of the vocal passages may remind one of Damo Suzuki during Can‘s ‘Tago-Mago‘-era. The LP is housed in a quality sleeve with reproduced artwork and includes a 4-page insert with liner notes and photos.
