I'll force you to call me "musically diverse" should even kill me.....
these couple albums are favorites   of mine, from the fab early 1970's...don't ask ME from where their name came, but these are a pair of damn good German blues/prog/rock, good stuff....in general, the lineup consisted of the following:
Werner Stephan (lead vocals), Joachim Schafer (guitar, piano, vocals), Fritz Schmitt (organ, piano), Torsten Herzog (bass) and Kalle Weber (drums). Werner Stephan (lead vocals), Joachim Schafer (guitar, piano, vocals), Fritz Schmitt (organ, piano), Torsten Herzog (bass) and Kalle Weber (drums).
The first album, as is often the case, is the one I prefer, with the great, long "Fairy Tales" and the rocking "Too Many People".....a fine album and a great "period piece", rock n roll sounded great in the early 1970's, everyone wanting to be Deep Purple and all, and that is NOT a slam at Deep Purple.

OK, the second album, imaginatively entitled "No. 2", is quite good as well, "Come Down to the Riverside" and "Don't Force Your Horse" are fne guitar/keyboard driven rockers that, like album #1, make me miss the 1970's. The centerpiece of the album, though, is a long, oddball version of the Beatles'"Come Together", which is the kind of cover that I find "acceptable", ie, DOING SOMETHING with the original song, rather than making a slavish, and pointless, carbon copy (pet peeve of mine if you failed to notice the previous 325 times I have mentioned it.

They made a few more albums.....the third one is entitled (wait for it) "III", and a few more.....I have "III" here, the drop in quality is huge, I'll put it up just because I have it....te subsequent albums, I'm not sure whether or not I've even heard them, if I have, they certainly weren't memorable

Anyway, two fine albums of EARLY 1970'S (the greatest of musical decades for THIS non-expert's money) prog/blues are enough, if you are a fan of the music of that era, as you KNOW I am, and haven't heard these, give em a listen, they rock the fucking house! Consider "III" a "bonus disc" or something!
