Xhol was one of the first bands who participated at the send of the 60s to the launch of the Krautrock movement in Germany. Nevertheless their music cannot be categorised. Their roots came from rhythm'n blues with soul tendencies. With their second album "electrip" they rapidly found their own style which can be considered as an original fusion of free jazz, psychedelic rock and electronic experimentations. Very dynamic their jazz rock can sometimes be compared with the spirit of the psychedelic soul developed by Soft Machine. However the unusual use of electric instruments and electronic manipulations made Xhol absolutely unique…

One has to admit, the German psychedelic rock reissue label Garden of Delights puts a lot of care in its sampler albums. They are generous - occasionally to the detriment of an album - and packaged with informative and lavish 16-page booklets. For every tenth release of their catalogue they pick a track from each of the nine previous releases and compile them under a volume of this series. All catalogue numbers are an integer multiple of ten. The tracks chosen for these samplers comprise recordings from the field of progressive rock music in all its different shades, ranging from psychedelic to symphonic, fusion and blues-rock, provided that there are progressive elements in it.

Missus Beastley were among the earliest bands of the new progressive rock wave, being founded in Herford in 1968, recorded their debut album in January 1970 with Hansi Fischer (flute, from Xhol, later Embryo) and Dieter Serfas (pereussion, from Amon Duul II). This was a glimpse into early German underground jazz-rock with lots of flute, psychedelic organ and guitars. The band could be compared to Xhol and Embryo.

Around since the very early days of Krautrock, M.T. Wizzard were merely an obscure festival band until they got adopted by the new-wave front. Then they flourished much like the UK band Here & Now, and are similarly a bit hit and miss, although many of their releases contain excellent Krautrock moments. They are still going today, over 40 years on!

A Couple of Times is an exuberant-powerfully tripped out jazzy-electronic trip. With bands as Kollektiv, Kraan, Out of Focus, Xhol, Twogether represent the jazziest side of krautrock. Their sound is rather atypical with reminiscence of notorious epic symphonic keyboardists. A couple of Times is a patchwork of musical styles and influences, an imaginative trip through colourful, soulful and freely improvised jam sessions. A Couple of Times remains a deliciously psychedelic, jazzy, neo-classical orientated musical trip. A little classic and a must have for all prog-heads of the first era.

A free form jazz mentality, avoiding musical clichés and commercialism, has always characterized the music and philosophies of German freak 'n roll band Guru Guru who have categorically occupied their own special stage within the realms of modern music. From its LSD induced origins in the late '60s to its present day configuration which still rocks and grooves with intensity, countless personnel changes have occurred making it more of a succession of musical ventures and concepts under the moniker Guru Guru, which came about as a tongue-in-cheek reference to the Beatles and their guru worshipping of the late '60s…

Always essentially the project of the Drogies brothers, Thirsty Moon came into being in September 1971 as the amalgamation of D.R.P. (Drogies Rock Project) and Shakespears (apparently a jazz-soul band), resulting in a very big group (seven to eight members) performing complex rock that used unusual jazz structures as its base. Obviously influenced by the likes of Colosseum, the Chicago brass-rock scene and earlier German bands like Xhol and Organisation, Thirsty Moon created a music with great dynamics, use of heavy and spacious structures, unconventional songs and arrangements, and above all amazing musicianship…

Panko is a german underground mystery what almost nothing is known about. Once a live performance from this five-piece project was recorded in summer 1971. Later released on cassette by drummer Richard Stey in 1983 this production shows the band jamming a lot coupled with some experimental attitude. Krautrock fans surely will be pleased by this blend of psych and jazz prog including woodwind contributions in the vein of Missus Beastly, Xhol Caravan and Erna Schmidt.
