Founded in summer 1971 in Germany by German organ player Jeff Beer, Dutch guitarist Rob Terstall and English bass player Ray Brown and drummer Stuart Fordham, Odin is one of German rock music history‘s greatest mysteries. Information about the band is rather rare and with this album (for the first time on vinyl, CD release LHC 56 with different bonus track) all lovers of progressive rock music of the early seventies will be excellently informed about this great band. The music is played by well educated musicians who play high level guitar and organ dominated progressive rock. After the release of their one and only album on the famous Vertigo label in 1972 (reissued by Long Hair on vinyl LHC 239 and CD LHC 58), Odin were invited by German radio station SWF to produce 4 titles for a radio show in February 1973. A 12-minute version of ‘Live Is Only‘ and an 11-minute version of the Zappa composition ‘King Kong‘ are fine examples for Odin‘s terrific musicianship. Zappa‘s ‘Oh No‘ (6:30) and the Terstall composition ‘Turnpike Lane‘ make the radio recording session complete. In addition to the radio recordings there is a 13-minute live version of Frank Zappa‘s classic title ‘Oh No‘, which is an impressive example of the bands live works.
All titles are remastered. The album comes with comprehensive band history and a lot of rare photos. Don‘t miss this true gem.
