Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
This record must be the dream of any music lover!!
This had been the debut by German band Hoelderlin (here still spelled with an "umlaut") and actually what an amazing one it was. Actually it should be considered as one of the most stunning first works by a band ever presented whereas usually it used to be rather underestimated. I've seen it rated with 9/15 on a German Prog site for example. Some people are comparing it with the style of some country fellow bands like Emtidi, Bröselmaschine or Witthüser & Westrupp (musicians of the latter two guested here actually) which is only valid in some way with the difference that this album had been far superior to anything those bands ever released. The music they presented here was a lot different from the more classic Prog style they revealed on their later (also very good) albums.
Drawing on his experience as one of America's most popular guitar teachers, Happy Traum has arranged these seven traditional Christmas songs and carols so that even an early-intermediate guitarist can learn them easily. Each classic song has been chosen for its playability as well as its timeless beauty. The songs rang from a fingerpicking version of an old-English carol to a bluesy African American Christmas spiritual. Once mastered, these guitar pieces will become favorites season after season for years to come.
Happy Traum is a singer/songwriter based in Woodstock, New York who served as editor of Sing Out! magazine for three years and has run Homespun Tapes – a company that sells instructional tapes for aspiring musicians narrated by well-known folk and rock artists – for over 40. ..
