Music For Your Brain, Volume 3

Well, we learn something new each day.....had a friend call and inform me that in 2012 they issued a
"Volume 5" of "Kraurock, Music For Your Brain", ANOTHER six disc set....I thought the series was complete a 4 volumes (24 discs), but I looked into it, and yep....downside: I don't have it....upside: my friend will be sending my a copy across cybespace in the next few days, so YOU (hell, and ME) will be able to enjoy the complete 30 disc set in all its brlliance. (Thanks for the offer, also, Big Bad Buddah, but like I say I HAVE located one!)

So here we are at Volume 3......did you like the first two? I love them, I've alway enjoyed the Krautrock, and (other than individual classic albums by Jane or Krokodil or whomever) I think this is the epitome of Krautrock greatness!

Well let's spot check a few higlights of THIS great set.....Disc 1 features the GREAT "The Executioner" by My Solid Ground, chilling and highly original song.....D'schinn gives us a good on with "Rock N Roll Dschinny"...Virus were featured on this blog recently, from them comes the fine "King Heroin".....Hairy Chapter and Fashion Pink are new arrivals to the series and sound just great.

Disc 2 features maybe the least-known stuff from the set so far (at least for me)......still PLENTY of solid tracks (Nektar's "Do You Believe in Magic", "Lady Blue" from Et Cetera, and the previouly unknown to me "Goodbye Guns, Be By Gones" by Coupla Prog......the disc doesn't miss a beat, in case you wondered.  One of my faves, Krokodil, makes thier first apperance on Disc 3, also great stuff fom "new arrivals" Dies Irae and Frame (the awesome "Frame of Mind").......one wonders if this set will ever feature a sub-par dic.

Disc 4 features the great "Der LSD-Marsch" from Guru Guru, Tiger B. Smith's fine "Help For a
Blind Man", and continues to pile on great stuff from the likes of Walpurgis and Franz K.....another winning disc. Krokodil return for Disc 5 ("Marzipan"), and adds some newcomers (to the series) such as Haze, Nine Days Wonder, and Epilon.

So, we close out Volume 3 with the 6th disc, don't you agree with me that they have all (EVERY DISC) been fairly spectacular? I could listen to this whole colection in one day, coming from me, rare praise. So a few of the tried an true return for Disc 6, Eloy, Faust, Tangerine Dream, and Birth Control, also the excellent Sweet Smoke and Passport......my hat is off to whoever programmed and compiled this, it's a magnificent piece of work and I'm thrilled to discover that there is a Volume 5, that's something to REALLY look foward to!
