Music For Your Brain Volume 2

Well, if you've had a chance to check out Volume 1 of this set, you'll understand my admiration for it,
its just really, really excellent, 24 total discs of totally classic Krautrock......there is no let up in this volume either.....plenty of GREAT shit here if you love that 1970's hard-prog sound that so often was so great......let's check a few highlights here....

Disc one is fine fom beginning to end, mostly with repeaters from Volume 1 such as Eloy, Guru Guru, and Electric Sandwich....Kraan's "Mind Quake" and "My Last Illusion" from Walpurgis are a couple of obvious standouts.

Some welcome newcomers join us on Disc 2....Amon Duul II and My Solid Ground turn up with some very fine additions. A good one from Popul Vuh, "Ich Mache einen Spiegel".....Faust and Mythos also turn in their normal winners....another nearly flawless disc.

My favorite, Jane, returns on Disc 3 with the great "Spain", Annexus Quam give us "Osmose III", and Gronschnitt contributes the lengthy "Symphony" on this collction of mostly very long tracks, often a Krautrock tradition.

On to Disc 4, Tangerine Dream is a name that has been absent, they clock in with "Stratosfear" (a very good one), Improved Sound Limited give us "Doctor Bob Dylan", in additon to some good stuff from Faust and Os Mundi....

This is a wonderfully programmed set, the next disc, 5, remains just as consistent......mostly "repeater" bands, Guru Guru, Scorpions, Lucifer's Friend, and Frumpy.......hardly a miss in the bunch though......finally Disc 6 leads off with Jane's phenominal "Here We Are" and ends with Sitting Bull's cool "Trip Away", and in between a full compliment of good stuff from Os Mundi, Eloy, Kravetz, and more......

Volume every bit as good as Volume1......hope you guys are liking it as well, to me this is one of my
favorite comp series of any genre!
