Odin -SWF Sessions 1973 . NEW CD, Psychedelic/Space Rock (Long Hair Music - LHCD 56)
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. This is high level guitar and organ dominated progressive rock. After the release of thier one and only album on Vertigo in 1972, ODIN were invited by German radio SWF to produce 4 titles for a radio show in February 1973. A 12-minutes version of "Live is only" and a 11-minutes version of the Zappa composition "King Kong" are fine examples for ODIN's terrific musicianship. "Oh no" (6:30) and the Terstall composition "Turnpike lane" make the radio recording session complete. In addition to the radio recordings t is a bonus track from a concert in autumn 1971 titled "Make up your mind" (13:10) which is an impressive example of the bands early works. All titles are digitally remastered. The booklet contains a comprehensive band history with a lot of rare photos.
